Gunther Verheyen is a longtime Scrum practitioner. After a career as a consultant, he started shepherding the Professional series of Scrum.org in 2013, while also leading its European operations. As from 2016 Gunther is furthering his path as an independent Scrum caretaker.
Gunther ventured into IT and software development after graduating in 1992. His Agile journey started with eXtreme Programming and Scrum in 2003. Years of dedication followed, years of using Scrum in diverse circumstances. As from 2010 Gunther became the inspiring force behind some large-scale enterprise transformations. He is a Professional Scrum Trainer with Scrum.org.
Gunther left consulting in 2013 to partner with Ken Schwaber, Scrum co-creator, at Scrum.org. He became the representative of Ken and Scrum.org in Europe, shepherded the ‘Professional Scrum’ series, worked with Scrum.org’s global network of Professional Scrum Trainers, and is co-creator to Agility Path and the Nexus framework for Scaled Professional Scrum.
Gunther left Scrum.org in 2016 to continue his journey of Scrum as an independent Scrum caretaker.
In 2013 Gunther published the acclaimed book “Scrum – A Pocket Guide (a smart travel companion)”. Ken Schwaber recommends his book as ‘the best description of Scrum currently available’ and ‘an extraordinarily competent book’. In 2016 the Dutch translation of his book was published as “Scrum Wegwijzer (Een kompas voor de bewuste reiziger)”.
When not travelling for Scrum and humanizing the workplace, Gunther lives and works in Antwerp (Belgium).
