During the dotcom-high-days in 2000 he moved to New York doing some consulting and technical work at various banks. Around that time he immersed himself into Scrum. In 2001 he moved to the Bay Area to help Applied Biosystems (now Thermo Fischer) to kickstart their agile transition in various areas: technical, team level and management.

I’m happy to share the outstanding experience I had during the Professional Scrum Product Owner course facilitated by Ralph. He’s passionate, extremely knowledgeable and also able to convey the subject matter in interesting and engaging ways.
I would highly recommend Ralph if you are seeking to gain a deeper understanding of Scrum and Product Ownership.
What made Ralph´s PSPO training unique is the fact of his vast practical knowledge. It’ rare that you can get such quality and dedicated time from a true subject matter expert as Ralph.
After the training, it is just about thoroughly reading his book to get well-prepared for the exam. Hitting above 90% shouldn´t be an issue.
Ich fand den Kurs persönlich sehr wertvoll. Es tut sehr gut, mal bewusst aus dem Arbeitsalltag herauszutreten und auf der Meta-Ebene mit etwas Distanz zu beachten, was man eigentlich macht bzw. wie man es macht. Ich konnte auf jeden Fall einige Inputs für mein Daily Business mitnehmen.
Kompliment an dich für die didaktisch absolut top herübergebrachten Inhalte. Dass du inhaltlich zu 110% verstehst von was du sprichst, muss ich nicht erwähnen. ????
Had a wonderful Professional Scrum Master training this week by trainer Ralph Jocham who really knows how to explain things.
Showing material from the projects he himself worked on made things very clear.
Engaging, Insightful, Inspiring, Passionate, Highly Recommended!
