Scrum Gathering New Orleans Highlights

What a terrific event! From seeing old friends and meeting new people to great food and fun, the Scrum Gathering exceeded expectations. The big news - I'm now a Certified Scrum Trainer! We will start offering Certified Scrum Master and Certified Scrum Product Owner courses in the coming months.

Ken Rubin delivered an awesome keynote. If you've been skeptical of Scrum - as a Product Manager or Business Executive - this video may give you a fresh, economical perspective.

Sean Dunn shared great insights into Scaling Product Management in an Agile Organization using a Mission Command metaphor based on his experience in the Canadian military. I'll post a link to his exceptional presentation as soon as it's available.

I facilitated a session on Teaching Scrum to Management and the attendees thrilled me with their attendance and participation. Over 80 people came to learn how I designed and delivered Leadership Immersion Workshops to educate leaders about Scrum and Agile. I appreciate all the great feedback and offer the materials from the role game here: poster and cards. Please contact me if your organization is interested in this workshop.

We enjoyed a great party on Monday night kicked off with a real N'Orleans parade complete with jazz band and police escort. I hope to see you at one of our upcoming events!
