I had the pleasure to give a Certified ScrumMaster class to CGI Information Systems and Management Consultants (Deutschland) GmbH, in Düsseldorf, Germany, last week. CGI say this about themselves:
Our clients’ backroom is our front room. CGI has developed and evolved a comprehensive portfolio of services—including consulting, systems integration, the full management of end-to-end of IT and business functions, and 100+ proprietary solutions—to serve as clients’ full-service provider in improving all facets of their operations. As a result, clients can turn their full attention to better serving their customers’ needs. (from CGI Website)
What I experienced in my days with their people in Düsseldorf: Commitment and joy in work. They like what they do. Very impressive!
You can see their passion in this shot of the moment, when we played the ball point game. They delivered 16 balls and 73 Ball Points with a 24 person team . (More photos on my webgallery.)
I would like to thank all people for working so passionately with me during the class and I wish you all the best in your further usage of Scrum.
btw — The participants collected 57,-Euros in fines, so I will send 114,- Euro to “Stiftung Bärenherz” in the next couple of days.
