Scrum Mastery - Skills for Developing High Performance Teams
Date: TBA, 2017
9:00AM – 5:00PM EST
You’ve achieved a level of experience as a Scrum Master. You may have also earned a CSM or similar certification. But maybe you’re beginning to realize leading and facilitating agile teams is harder in the real world, that creating an environment to empower and foster self-directed teams is a challenge. That and inspiring teams to deliver on the promises (the results) of what agile can be is a moving target.
This 1-day immersion workshop goes beyond the fundamentals to focus on the situational aspects of agile coaching. We’ll explore real world scenarios and mine attendees for specific challenging situations.
We’ll explore those scenarios and discuss your options for handling the most crucial and delicate of situations you’ll experience as your team moves through Agile & Scrum adoption. We’ll also tackle organizational adoption challenges and how to effectively lead your team in regulated, enterprise, and other more challenging environments.
Expect to leave the workshop with the shared experiences, tools, and techniques to lead and inspire your agile teams to greater:
- Quality & Predictability
- Collaboration & Transparency
- Business Value Delivery (Results)
- More Engagement & Fun
This workshop will provide 7 – Scrum Alliance, Category B SEU’s and 7 – PMI, Category B PDU’s
The course is primarily for Scrum Masters and Project Managers leading teams in existing agile organizations. It can also be a useful class for Agile Functional Managers & Directors, Product Owners, and Team Leads. Virtually anyone who is tasked with developing and leading an Agile/Scrum team, while struggling a bit to be an effective Servant Leader.
This workshop is scheduled from 9am – 5pm with a one hour lunch break.
Cancellation policy: We support swaps, but no direct cancellations after April 31’st.
Getting Started with Selenium Automation
In this workshop, Automation experts, Chris Lawson and David Dang, discuss getting started with Selenium Automation.
Date: TBA, 2017
9:00AM – 5:00PM EST
Have you ever wanted to dive into an open source test automation tool but didn’t know where to begin? This one-day course focuses on getting started with developing automated web tests using Selenium. This class is for anyone who would like to learn more about core Selenium capabilities or even those new to automation. A combination of lecture with concrete examples, classroom discussions, and proven techniques provide attendees with a good understanding of what it takes to successfully write Selenium automated tests. This includes basic object oriented programming concepts with JAVA through implementing effective Selenium WebDriver methods.
