Mr Ethan Soo

Ethan graduated from the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor with a bachelor's degree in Computer Science and Engineering. He had over 18 years of experience in software development, project management, and Agile rollout across large, multi-site organizations.

In 2003, he learned Scrum and was inspired by its elegance and effectiveness. He spent the next 5 years working as a Development lead, Director of Engineering, and CTO that implements Scrum. In 2009, his successful experience led him to focus his career towards enterprise Agile transformations.

In 2011, he led his first commercial Agile transformation for about 200 developers at EF Labs with 16 Scrum and 2 Kanban implementations. The project was very successful and EF Labs was one of the best Agile implementations in China at that time. The end-to-end effort needed only 3 months, and this has become one of the hallmark Agile adoption cases in China.

Subsequently, Ethan led the Agile transformation effort at Bank of China, Cisco China, ZTE, NIO, Mastercard, Meituan, and many business entities in Beijing and Shanghai.

Within 3 months of working with Ethan, most large-scale Scrum systems gained 30-80% productivity, while small multi-team systems reported over 100% productivity boost.

Over the past decade, Ethan was one of the most successful and celebrated Agile coaches in China. In addition, he also focused on delivering and enhancing Scrum and Kanban education in the Asia Pacific region. He leveraged his extensive experience with real cases to create deeply engaging courses.

With over 300 deliveries, stellar 5-stars performance 95% of the time, and 4 fluent teaching languages (English, Chinese, Cantonese, Bahasa) - Ethan is one of the best Agile trainers in East and Southeast Asia.

In 2020, Scrum Inc. Agile Education Program entrusted Ethan to be a Scrum Fellow and the regional partner for the Asia Pacific (APAC) region. Ethan’s aim and mission is to increase the accessibility of Dr. Jeff Sutherland's True Scrum knowledge to everyone and to mentor, coach, train, and certify next-generation Scrum Inc. trainers in the Asia Pacific.
