ScrumDesk mentor
Dušan Kocúrek

In the year 2007 the Scrum and XP from Trenches book, written by Henrik Kniberg, was published. This small book provided an aha moment for Dusan, which started the idea about ScrumDesk, the agile project management tool.

His personal experience leads to consultancy services for users of the application followed by the start of consultancy services for non-product users. During the development of the product, Dusan learned how to define and iteratively build a successful global application and, at the same time, he learned how to apply Agile in product management, development, and operation. This is what it makes ScrumDesk company unique compared to other agile consultancies and agile tools providers. ScrumDesk combines the experience of both sides.

As Product Manager of ScrumDesk Start! Suite, he is responsible for vision, strategy, and product delivery.

As Head of Consultancy, Dusan is responsible for vision, strategy, business development, mentors’ education, and leadership.
