Back to the roots: Agile and SCRUM fundamentals:
I want to say a huge thank you to the creators of the School of Scrum Masters! Unlike many trainings that tell the same introductory part to Scrum in different styles, here you can get real knowledge and tools that go far beyond Agile. I discovered a bunch of insights and effective tools that I could apply in teams and immediately get a positive response. The coolest trainers talk about interesting cases with humor, conduct simple but demonstrative games, thanks to which the theory gets instant confirmation in practice. Dima and Yura gave a great impetus to development in a wide range of areas. Thank you.
The expertise of the coaches, besides being very high, perfectly complements each other - the general base is supplemented with a "chip" - Yura has coaching, Dima has scaled scrum. All this is seasoned with incredible energy with a share of humor, a lot of useful practical tools and a company of like-minded people with burning eyes. On this course, I received not only a huge amount of knowledge and new tools, but also a pure buzz from what is happening - a worthy example and motivation from the trainers, practical cases and a favorable creative atmosphere from the participants. Happy to be in the first group and create school history with Agile Drive!
Why was the training in SHSM valuable for me: 1. The theory is presented in a stylus, in the form of schemes/models/algorithms and is demonstrated by butts, stories from the practice of Yury and Dimi. 2. A lot of practice in groups: from one side you know about the knowledge of others, from the other side you take a permanent turning point from the coach. The one who knows how to work and remember the work is not the same. 3. I respect that I have a set of skills that are important for SM, and all the same - for me I had a lot of bright and darker ideas for training, in homework, in recommendations, as a matter of fact, they improved my interaction with teams and yak expanded my role as a svetoglyad .
Why studying at School SM was valuable for me:
Most inspiring learning ever. There were no lectures on the basics of the framework and the content of the Scrum Guide, the whole theory was sent in advance and the student himself was responsible for studying it, as well as for doing homework. The main value of training for me is in working out "here and now" the approaches, techniques and skills needed by the Scrum Master. Situational leadership, mediation, implementation of changes, work with stakeholders - my personal top list. Thanks to the personalities of the coaches, the group's energy has always been at its best. I am glad that I found out about the launch of the school and got into the first stream. Now I'm your brand advocate, guys!
