‘Agile 101 with Scrum’ is an 8 hour workshop using Scrum to learn about agile. The course format suites everyone from Coaches to those new to agile. Learn agile by doing. Scrum dominates the world of agile. The seminal document describing Scrum was updated in 2020: The Scrum Guide. Whether new to Scrum or an experienced specialist the Scrum Guide and its updates are required understanding for agile practitioners. The Market demands our understanding of Scrum. The major scaled agile frameworks and toolkits (e.g SAFE, Disciplined Agile) use Scrum as a foundational building block.
Students attending this course will use Scrum to learn about Agile with a deep focus on the Scrum Guide and foundational agile. The Class is a mixture of traditional instruction and a ‘flipped Class format.’ The flipped Class spends 80% of Class time working together in Teams. Teams work in immersive virtual environments using Zoom rooms and Miro online products provided as part of the course. Brainscape online learning technology used in Class is also provided to students. This adaptive, interactive, progressive system allows students to start the Agile learning journey and continuously improve their learning after the Class.
Attendees Take Away
Students leave ‘Agile 101 with Scrum’ with backup files of Miro Boards used. In our new normal skills to facilitate remote Teams are at a premium and this is a fine addition to a leader’s toolkit. The flipped Classroom format allows more than lecture. Students will participate in presenting agile topics to the rest of the Class as part of the Classroom Scrum. The act of teaching the rest of the Class ensures understanding.
“Those who know do. Those who understand teach.”
The engaged Class and Team format also provides remarkable and often enduring networking opportunities.
Participation in Live-Virtual Format
The Live Virtual environment is best experienced with a full-form computer, e.g. Laptop or Desktop. Past students have expressed several equipment preferences. A cheap USB mouse with a zoom roller rather than a touchpad makes it easier to navigate the online, virtual post-it-notes boards in Miro. An inexpensive USB second screen works well with a Laptop allowing simultaneous viewing of the main conference room share and the virtual Team rooms. A good headset with a boom microphone helps individuals immerse in Team rooms.
The best learning for Students depends on everyone’s participation. Please make sure to be able to commit to the full day. If you self-identify as not being a Digital Native, please consider watching introductory tutorial recordings at Zoom, Miro and Brainscape available at their sites:
