Will you take the red pill or the blue pill? Most Scrum courses are about the responsibilities of the ScrumMaster and the team — the blue pill — while ignoring the integrated role of management and the importance of converting your enterprise to Scrum, top-to-bottom. The blue pill will give you 10% or 20% improvements, and can maybe even double your performance. I’d rather have the class aim for one or two orders of magnitude in their implementations back home. The class will choose — and in any case, the blue pill junkies will have enough to take back home to get their 10% or 20%. For the rest, you’re in for a great ride. And, in any case, in this course, we’ll immerse you in those experiences, and you’ll emerge empowered to take on the world of high-powered product development.
On the 16-17 November, Jim Coplien and I will give a Certified Scrum Master Class together. The class is held in Valtech’s beautifull facilities on Holmen in the old historic canon boat houses from 1837.
