    Join us for an exciting journey in the form of a Certified Scrum Master (CSM) & deep agile course … where we travel and work through a project from start to finish. You’ll see the big picture, learn specific practices and start thinking and learning about how to get the best out of agile for yourself and your organisation.  

    In this 4-day course you will, in addition to a Certified Scrum Master course, learn a wide range of valuable practices from the rest of agile that you can add to your personal Scrum and agile toolbox.  You will also get a wider perspective suitable for thinking agile on an organisational level including understanding more of the management perspective.

    In other words, you will be well versed in core Scrum and … much more agile!

    The course will be taught by two experienced agile practitioners, who have seen great success as well as struggles. They are both among the few Europeans who have worked with agile approaches since the mid 1990’s..

    Participants who complete the course successfully will be designated Certfied Scrum Master (CSM). This Certification includes a one-year membership in the Scrum Alliance, where additional materials and information is available exclusively to CSM’s.

    o   Petr Bezpalec, developer, Streamserve, Prague

The best bit about the course was the opportunity to be test different tools for completing an agile project, from start to finish. I feel that I am ready to start working in an agile way and actually, even on the first day after the course, I used techniques I'd learnt during the course!‘

    o   Anna Ahnberg, Uppsala University, Uppsala

    Notes

    Peter Measey is a Director and co-Founder of RADTAC www.radtac.co.uk . RADTAC Services include Consulting, Training and Delivery Skills, to provide ‘Everything Agile’.

    With 25 years experience as a Project and Programme Manager / Consultant within the Public and Private Sectors, Peter has excellent experience working within very many diverse environments. He has specialised in the agile space since 1996 and has managed the implementation of some of the largest Agile transformations in the Public and Private sector both in the UK and internationally.

    Peter is an accredited DSDM Atern trainer, Certified ScrumTrainer, APLN (Agile Project Leaders Network) Practitioner, and Prince2 Practitioner.

    Per-Magnus Skoogh is a director and co-founder of mPeira (www.mpeira.se, www.mpeira.com)  which delivers agile coaching and training to various customers. Per-Magnus began working with agile approaches almost 15 years ago when he began using DSDM/Atern. He has since moved on to using multi-agile approaches based on Scrum, Lean, XP and DSDM Atern.

    Day-to-day Per-Magnus and his colleagues help projects and organisations become more effective by using agile values and practices. He has had an increasing interest in, and assignments focused on, the agile organization – how to make not just the projects agile – but also the rest of the organization. This means hands-on work with terms such as agile business product management, business agility and agile leadership around projects which is adds some additional benefit to the course.

    Per-Magnus was on the board of DSDM for a few years, both in Sweden and the UK (the International Board). He has written a number of well-received courses in agile methods and has quite a few certifications such as Scrum Master, Certified Agile Project Leader, DSDM Atern Practitioner and Trainer, Certified Agile Master, PMI PMP and more.

    The course in relation to Lean, Scrum, XP, Atern and more:

    The course covers:

    All of Scrum, even in some detail. This is because Scrum is the smallest and simplest of all agile approaches – this is the beauty – and risk - of Scrum.

    All major principles from Lean such as value streams, the importance of keeping your options open and more.

    All key aspects of DSDM Atern and in-depth the most beneficial practices. DSDM is the largest of the agile approaches, and if we pick the best from it we will benefit greatly with little added work.

    From XP: How the team works, core development practices, XP project management perspective, user stories and some more. No detailed programming techniques, however.

    Practical experiences and learning points of the above – what to do and what do avoid.

  • Who Should Attend
