Leading Lean Software Development Chi Feb 10-11

Also wanted to make a quick post about this course. Mary & Tom Poppendieck recently completed their new book (of basically the same title). They will be leading this course in Chicago on February 10-11. They gave essentially the same course in Chicago last year just after Agile2009. Everyone was happy with it. The lean […]

Certified ScrumMaster course in Ottawa Feb 3-4

Just a quick post to mention this course. We were up in Ottawa recently and enjoyed it. (Although cold to a guy from NC.) This should be a good course, and hope you can attend. For details, see here: http://bit.ly/9aSHmd  Subscribe in a reader

Paying for courses

Apparently paying is a complex subject. This post is mainly for those who wish to pay for our LeanAgileTraining courses, but others are welcome to read it. First, there are many ways to pay: check, cash, wire transfer, credit card, barter, etc. If you have a question about this, contact Cassandra Wagner. Second, the “easy” […]

Certified ScrumMaster Course with Jeff Sutherland Dec 15

I am next looking forward to doing a CSM course with Jeff Sutherland on Dec. 15 to 16. Should be lots of fun. I hope Jeff (or I) will take enough time to talk about “The Concept of Ba” by Takeuchi and Nonaka. I truly enjoy working with Jeff for lots of reasons. If you […]

It might be helpful, but it is not the main purpose. The real purpose is improving people’s lives. The customers, […]

Value of Training (CSPO)

What’s Scrum training worth? I am about to lead a Certified Scrum Product Owner course. (2 days in NYC and a bit later in Saratoga Springs.) The question comes up: What is this course worth? I explain this in more detail in the course, but here’s the summary. In the course we talk about many […]

New, special Classes – I’m excited

I am particularly excited about the following courses or workshops. One: Jeff Sutherland in Richmond, VA. Certified ScrumMaster (CSM) course. Dr. Sutherland (he has a PhD) is a great guy and of course the co-creator of Scrum. I always learn more when I do these courses with him. This a great advanced course for many […]

Fun & Success – Learn Scrum

Fun & success? In the same sentence? “You are doing Scrum right if and only if you are having more fun. Serious fun.” “You are doing Scrum right if and only if you are having clear success.” How can these both be true? Pushing through to success is so stressful. Fun is light-hearted, like laughter. […]

CSM Course, Durham, May 6-7. And May 8th

We are looking forward to a good Certified ScrumMaster course in Durham, N.C. We hope that people will get enough out of it to double their Velocity. (We know there is enough there to do that, but there are several other issues.) The course will address BV Engineering, Agile Estimating & Planning and other issues. […]
