Experience Scrum!

Experience all aspects of scrum in this one-day workshop. Over the course of this workshop, we will engage the power of simulations and learning games to evoke and explore various aspects of scrum including: roles, artifacts, planning, estimation, and continuous improvement. Warning! This will be a participatory learning experience, without a PowerPoint safety net!

What to expect:

Our instructional style is highly interactive, so you will be moving about, participating in games and simulations. Participation in any physical exercise is, of course, optional; in fact the role of “observer” is quite valuable! Feel free to participate at your ability and comfort levels.

When do we start and end each day? The classroom opens at 8:30 AM each day and class will begin promptly at 9:00 AM. We will end at 5:00 PM each day.

Will there be food?¬†We’ll be feeding you well, so you will be ready to learn! We provide breakfast, lunch, and snacks both days. Vegetarian options will be available and you are also welcome to bring in food.

What should I bring?¬†Yourself. You won’t need a laptop, but you are free to bring one. And yes, there is wifi so you can check your email.

Is there something I should read before the workshop? You will receive a bound copy of our book, The Elements of Scrum . This book is a field guide to the real-world application of scrum, and reading it after the training will help cement your knowledge. You can also buy a copy of the book without registering for a course, right here. In the meantime, you can read an excerpt here that chronicles a week in the life of a scrum team.

Relax, this is Agile Learning Labs, not Dunder Mifflin or Initech. We’ll be wearing jeans, and you can be, too.

I’m a PMP, will I earn precious PDUs? After completing the workshop, you will have earned 7 Professional Development Units that can be used to maintain your Project Management Professional credential from the Project Management Institute.

Feel free to email us if you have more questions about the workshop.
