John Coleman


John Coleman is a Professional Scrum Trainer (including Kanban), a candidate LeSS trainer, a Leadership Masterclass trainer, a Product Ownership for agility trainer, and Europe’s most prominent Scrum+Kanban trainer.

He works at all levels, with teams, with programs & products/services, values streams and exec level. Without “walking the gemba” of value creation and value consumption, John’s organisational transformation work would lack punch and credibility at various levels; so understanding the work and its use is crucial to him.

John is a systems thinker, and most importantly, takes an independent view. But he is also a people thinker; he specialises in Extreme Ownership, Turn the Ship Around, Team of Teams, Spiral Dynamics Integral, Viral Change & other models.


As a Professional Scrum Trainer (PST), and a candidate LeSS trainer, John delivers the Certified Professional Scrum with Kanban (PSK) course and the Certified LeSS Basics (CLB). He also holds the following training and certifications:

  • Professional Agile Leadership (PAL)
  • Professional Scrum with Kanban (PSK)
  • Professional ScrumMaster (PSM 1,2&3)
  • Professional Scrum Product Owner (PSPO 1&2)
  • Scaled Professional Scrum Certifification (SPS)
