The Scrum methodology of agile software development marks a dramatic departure from waterfall management. In fact, Scrum and other agile processes were inspired by its shortcomings. The Scrum methodology emphasizes communication and collaboration, functioning software, and the flexibility to adapt to emerging business realities — all attributes that suffer in the rigidly ordered waterfall paradigm.

Many Scrum classes do not include preparation activities and include only minimal measurement and feedback about a participant’s Scrum/Agile understanding. MJ’s 3.1-day Scrum workshop is intended for people looking for something more: more interactive exercises, more knowledge measurement and feedback, and more examples of how Scrum and Agile are used in the real world.
The .1 is the required online preparation. Fortunately this is the most entertaining online resource currently available: The Scrum Training Series. Since all participants show up with this baseline understanding, we’re able to do more advanced activities than a typical CSM class would allow. This is the class we wish we had gotten when we started doing Scrum.
