JASON TANNER on TEACHING SCRUM TO MANAGEMENT
THIS EVENT is scheduled for WEDNESDAY 1/22/2014.
Please disregard previous emails stating a different date.
Learn what worked & didn't work to teach Scrum values & principles to over 400 directors & execs. You exit with tools to use the next day in your own work with management.
Executive Summary: During the 2nd half of last year I had the rare opportunity to design and deliver a learning experience to a large swath of the director and above population of a 50,000 employee company. In the course of teaching over 400 people in 30 workshops, I learned a lot about their learning needs and how to help them achieve their learning goals. My goal is to share this experience with the Scrum community to (1) provide a framework for others to use and (2) help others avoid the pitfalls I encountered.
1. Describe the most common Scrum learning objectives identified by managers outside Scrum teams.
2. Design an immersive Scrum learning experience for managers.
3. Inspect the outcomes of Scrum workshops for managers to adapt the content and delivery for future workshops.
4. Identify other topics to incorporate into workshops based on the organization's culture and learning objectives.
5. Explain the basic concepts of curriculum design based on Training from the Back of the Room.
6. Choose activities to develop modules of curriculum for a workshop.
