Additional Benefit One:
All attendees receive as part of their course registration as many decks of Planning Poker cards as you can use! If you need more than three decks, please let us know in the comments section of the registration so that we can bring extras for you. The most we have given to one individual so far is 100 decks (we have nearly 5000 left)!!! Each deck has four sets. Therefore, most Scrum teams need two or three decks.
Additional Benefit Two:
All attendees receive a free electronic copy of Mishkin Berteig's book "Agile Advice". This book is an edited, updated collection of Mishkin's most popular and best articles from AgileAdvice.com with a bonus of three major articles that will never be published on the blog./p>
In addition, everyone gets a free physical copy of one other book of their choice from our list of recommended reading. Topics include organizational culture, teamwork, Agile and Scrum-specific topics, technical practices and business. You will choose a book at the end of the course.
Additional Benefit Three:
David is connected to thousands of Agile Experts around the world due to his travels and long participation in the Agile community. If he doesn't know the answer to a question, he knows someone who does! Of course, David brings a wealth of experience to the class and can help you understand even the most difficult aspects of Scrum, apply it to real-life, and can share both great success and failure stories! Sometimes there isn't enough time in class to get to everyone's questions - feel free to ask anything you want after the class by email or by phone. If David doesn't have a good answer for your question, he can almost certainly connect you with someone who does have the answer!
