Learn by doing

You don't want to spend a day sitting back listening to someone talk at you, and we wouldn't want to run a class that way. You will spend the day writing stories, creating personas, and creating release plans with your fellow participants.

A copy of Chris' book "Elements of Scrum" is included.
