Judy Neher

Judy Neher is a Certified Scrum Trainer (CST) and Agile coach who has been passionately transforming software teams from traditional development practices to Agile practices for the last 14 years. Judy has had more than 29 years of experience with the Federal Government (hence her keen interest in Agile security!) as a mathematician, computer scientist, and traditional software manager, ultimately embracing Agile practices as an Agile coach, trainer, and leader in 2001. Additionally, she has lent her experience to many major commercial organizations where she has had the privilege of helping shape major Agile transformations.    She has worked with more than 75 development teams, both small and extremely large, and learns something with every experience.

Judy is president/CEO of Celerity, a small, woman-owned Agile training and coaching firm based in Indiana.  When Judy isn’t sharing her Scrum passion with teams, she is enjoying the company of her large family, including her husband Chris, and their six children (ages 25 to 14).   As a family, they enjoy boating, running, traveling, and big family dinners.
