VIRTUAL | Jim Coplien: Scrum Patterns


Scrum community experts have been collecting these secrets for years, and working together to write them down as patterns. Even the inventor of Scrum, Jeff Sutherland, now uses them as a central part of his training and of describing Scrum. And now they’re freely available to you. Come and learn how to use them and what they mean to your organization, and how you can use them to chart a powerful new direction of kaizen for your Scrum team!

You’ll learn things about Scrum at a deeper level than you probably reached during your CSM, PSM, or CSPO training - and we can focus the seminar on your team’s special needs. You will learn the secrets that Scrum’s designers and foremost practitioners use to reap all the benefits of lean and agile, including advanced techniques for multi-team Scrums.

All participants of the course get a copy of the book.
