Niwot, Colorado (PRWEB) February 05, 2013
For the first time Innolution, LLC Managing Principal Kenny Rubin will teach his highly regarded Working on a Scrum Team course in Australia on the 8th and 9th of April 2013 in Sydney.
Working on a Scrum Team is a hands-on, discussion-oriented, two-day training course that weaves together three core topics areas: the foundation of agile and Scrum, user stories, and estimating and planning. This course is intended to provide a comprehensive emersion into what is needed to be a productive member of a Scrum team.
Anyone involved in a Scrum project (product owners, ScrumMasters, members of the development team) will benefit from attending this course, including: programmers, testers, analysts, project managers, and functional-area managers. To further enhance the experience, organizations should consider having entire teams attend so that all members will share a common set of concepts and common vocabulary for discussing these concepts as they begin to apply them to develop products.
According to one of Rubin’s students, Ryan O’Hare, Betfair, Ltd, "Rubin gave a fantastic and stimulating course. Fast-paced and engaging it covered every possible question and element that cropped up. A great building block in order to implement Agile fully in the organisation.”
The Working on a Scrum Team course is a well-balanced mix of lecture, small-group discussion and hands-on exercises. The content is based on Rubin’s best-selling book Essential Scrum: A Practical Guide to the Most Popular Agile Process. The book and the Working on a Scrum Team course both use the new Visual AGILExicon™ (pronounced Visual Agile Lexicon), which is a 3D visual language for describing and communicating core agile and Scrum concepts in a graphically rich and visually appealing manner. The use of the Visual AGILExicon in the training materials provides a unique and highly visual way for people to understand and retain core agile and Scrum concepts.
The Working on a Scrum Team class on April 8th and 9th is scheduled to immediately precede the inaugural Scrum Australia Conference (scrum.com.au) that also will take place in Sydney, Australia on April 10-11, 2013. Rubin will deliver a conference keynote presentation focused on understanding and applying Scrum in an economically sensible fashion.
