Program Management with Scrum


Program Management with Scrum Training
13-14 October 2005 CLOSED
New Balance Corporate Headquarters

A good place to get Agile is at one of the leading athletic companies in the United States and in response to email with questions about this unique Advanced ScrumMaster course, I am posting the details here.

The agenda will be:
  1. Type A, B, C Scrum concepts - see Agile 2005 paper on the Future of Scrum
  2. Type A Scrum must work well first - review impediments seen in the field
  3. Transitioning to Type B Scrum
  • - implementing Toyota concept of continuous flow
  • - upgrading product specification delivery
  • - automation of Scrum reporting
  • - example of monitoring a Type B Scrum through automated reporting
4. Preparing for a Type C Scrum
  • - cultural change required to make entire company Agile
  • - setting up guiding coalition of senior stakeholders for change
  • - establishing a MetaScrum
  • - making every Sprint a Release
  • - overlapping Sprints running through same set of teams
Basically, the entire CSM training will be reviewed and translated into a Type C Scrum environment which is designed to win in the market by making a whole company a Scrum company. This involves working intensively with product marketing and senior management in addition to the development teams.

The book, Agile Project Management with Scrum, by Ken Schwaber is required reading for the course, as well as Agile Development with Scrum, by Ken Schwaber and Mike Beedle.
