Years later, Roman discovered that there are other ways of working, involving handoffs, excess documentation, bureaucracy and boredom. These experiences inspired Roman to help guide workplaces and organizations towards being meaningful and purpose driven.

He is a big fan of data and quantitative analytics and also loves metrics and measurements.

What other people say

Great training. Really enjoyed Cesario’s interactive training methods. He did a great job tailoring the content of the course to the needs of the group. I can recommend this training to anyone who wants to understand SCRUM beyond just passing the assessment.
Jean KuppersProfessional Scrum Master
I had been working as a Scrum Product Owner for quite some time before taking the Product Owner course from Cesario. It was a great experience, as there was a lot of time for questions and to go more in depth into the subject matter. It really helped me to become a better product owner!
