Optimized for the best learning experience for Asians.
The initial curriculum focused on the theories and principles behind the Scrum framework which was designed specifically for western learners. This was less suitable for asian learners that practise a more practical and multimedia-based learning habit.
Hence, Ethan Soo and Jeff Sutherland spent three days in Scrum Inc.'s office at Tokyo, Japan to redesign and restructure the Scrum at Scale curriculum according to the learning habits and work culture in Asia.
Ethan Soo aims to conduct culture-sensitive teaching of Scrum@Scale that can provide the best learning experience for Asians. In the revised Scrum curriculum, a unique frame of problems was derived from the case studies in Asia. Following that, a precise implementation roadmap that incorporates ways to tackle those problems was constructed. This allows learners to implement Agile in their workplace and deliver business results immediately after the class.

About the Trainer:
Ethan graduated from the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor with a bachelor's degree in Computer Science and Engineering. He had over 18 years of experience in software development, project management, and Agile rollout across large, multi-site organizations.
In 2003, he learned Scrum and was inspired by its elegance and effectiveness. He spent the next 5 years working as a Development lead, Director of Engineering, and CTO that implements Scrum. In 2009, his successful experience has led him to focus his career towards enterprise Agile transformations.
In 2011, he led his first commercial Agile transformation for about 200 developers at EF Labs with 16 Scrum and 2 Kanban implementations. The project was very successful and EF Labs was one of the best Agile implementations in China at that time. The end-to-end effort needed only 3 months, and this has become one of the hallmark Agile adoption cases in China.
Subsequently, Ethan led the Agile transformation effort at Bank of China, Cisco China, ZTE, NIO, Mastercard, Meituan, and many business entities in Beijing and Shanghai.
Within 3 months of working with Ethan, most large-scale Scrum systems gained 30-80% productivity, while small multi-team Scrum systems reported over 100% productivity boost.
Over the past decade, Ethan was one of the most successful and celebrated Agile coaches in China. In addition, he also focused on delivering and enhancing Scrum and Kanban education in the Asia Pacific region. Ethan was able to leverage his extensive experience and real cases to create deeply engaging Scrum and Scrum at Scale courses.
With over 300 deliveries, stellar 5-stars performance 95% of the time, and 4 fluent teaching languages (English, Chinese, Cantonese, Bahasa) - Ethan is one of the best Agile trainers in East and Southeast Asia.
In 2020, Scrum Inc. Agile Education Program entrusted Ethan to be a Scrum Fellow and the regional partner for the Asia Pacific (APAC) region. Ethan will help to increase the accessibility of Dr. Jeff Sutherland's True Scrum knowledge and to mentor, coach, train, and certify next-generation Scrum Inc. trainers in the Asia Pacific.
