Interesting material. Learned about what we do is not ideal and how to Scale. Will try to implement for my clients.

As an inexperienced member of a Scrum Team, that is practicing Scrum, I found this course really helpful in providing me the foundation needed to further grow into a Product Ownership (Product Champion) role. I've been able to spot changes that I will be able to recommend to the team.

Less teacher to student than community of peers. Highly discussion based. Fewer demonstrations than CSM [Certified Scrum Master]. More focus on unique issues across multiple places of work than learning principles.

Course was paced well. Material excellent. Instructor very knowledgeable.

At mid day on Day 1, I felt that we had spent too much time on fundamentals of Scrum. For an A-CSM course, I expected to jump straight into more advanced topics. I enjoyed Day 2 more for that reason. I also realized that some so-called 'basic' topics are more nuanced than I thought.

Excellent. Never did story mapping at the Product Champion level and it was very cool. Learned about the various PO [Product Owner] roles which helped me understand the various hats as well as skills that I might need to develop to grow.

We were able to cover a lot of material in a short period of time. Dan made the course interactive which helped in the learning. I genuinely feel as though I learned how Scrum Mastering should be done and feel like I can explain it.

Scrum for Teams Training

So you want to learn Scrum. But is training really worth it?
What can training give you that reading a few books can’t?

TIME = MONEY

Transforming your team or organization to a new methodology is a big undertaking. Organized training will give you the kickstart you need and save you valuable time otherwise wasted on costly trial and error.

INCREASED RETENTION

Studies show that when learners “do and say,” they experience an increase of knowledge retention up to 80% over reading alone.

BUILD SKILL, NOT JUST KNOWLEDGE

Books and blogs are good knowledge resources. Skill, however, is acquired by doing. There is simply no replacement for the skill building that occurs with hands-on activities and real-life simulations.

Scrum attendees

There is no right or wrong person to attend this training. In fact, the most successful agile adoptions have included training for everyone, right down to Finance and Sales staff. Scrum training is especially appropriate for anyone in the corporate structure dealing with rapidly changing demands. In a traditional organization, these roles might include:

Developers
Testers
Directors
Project Managers
Program Managers
CXOs
Architects
Coders
Designers
Technical Writers
SMEs
Product Managers
Stakeholders
Analysts
QA Staff
Engineers

What Industries

Use Scrum?

Scrum industries

The most popular use of Scrum is for software development in a wide variety of industries, including financial services, insurance, education, information technology, government programs and supply chain management. But Scrum goes beyond software development! We’ve known organizations and individuals who have used Scrum for graphic design, wedding planning, data warehousing, consulting, classroom projects, household management, auto salvage yards and much more. Scrum is appropriate for almost any complex project with rapidly changing or emergent requirements, regardless of the industry.
