I am happy to announce that Sao Paulo, Rio de Janeiro, Manaus, and Cordoba in Argentina have now 74 (in total) new Certified ScrumMasters. (See Pictures here, and for pictures taken by Marcio Marinho here.) Last week I trained two internal classes of a very large internet provider in Brazil and we held together with Peter Hundermark and Danilo Bardusco, a very successful open Certified ScrumMaster Class in Sao Paulo.
The participants at the Danilos presentation were especially happy about the implementation of Scrum at Globo.com.
This time we had the important topic of DONE as a special topic in all the classes. In our industry we still deliver code of status “WOMM” (works-on-my-machine). We definitely need to change this! I love Ken Schwabers presentation about “A Canary in the Colemine”, that addressed this very nicely.
Those of you who attended the trainings: I would appreciate if you can give me your feedback about the class in the comments below. Please answer the following questions as laid out in the format below:
- What was a significant aspect of the trainings for me?
- What went well?
- What could be improved?
- What still puzzles me?
The next class in Brazil will be in July and in October. Exact dates and locations will follow.
The next class with me is in Germany: Munich, 16.06.08
