Belatrix’s goal is to continue establishing its position as the leading South America outsourcing company when it comes to offering agile software development services based on Scrum. By offering a very aggressive training program to its personnel Belatrix ensures that every one of its consultants has a deep and working knowledge of the latest technologies and project management frameworks. Belatrix ha also opened the workshops to professionals outside of Belatrix in an effort to strengthen the agile move in South America.

Scrum has established itself as the most used and respected agile methodologies nowadays. Because of the high visibility, interactivity and flexibility, Scrum is extremely applicable in nearshore software outsourcing endeavors.

After more than four years of actively applying Scrum on dozens of projects for multiple clients world-wide, Belatrix has decided to expand its commitment by investing significant resources in certifying most of its Project Leads as Certified Scrum Masters.

“We couldn’t be more excited with the fact that in just a few days we will have 52 additional Certified Scrum Masters in our region thanks to this program”, mentions Luis Robbio, the CEO of Belatrix. Horacio Cappa, who leads HR at Belatrix adds that “while we have initially launched the program in Mendoza, Argentina; our plan is to offer this and other workshops in Lima, Perú shortly and we will do it with the same mindset where we not only train our own personnel but we also open our programs to people outside of Belatrix which we believe will strengthen our industry”.

The Certified Scrum Master training is supported by the Scrum Alliance (http://www.scrumalliance.org) and it ensures that those who become certified have participated in a very focused and interactive training program.
