If COVID-19 is forcing your team to work remotely for the first time, our Working With Virtual Teams series can help! Comprised of 8 lessons with 6 videos, we hope this helps skyrocket your team’s work-from-home productivity.
We strive to create great course materials like useful training manuals, informative lesson texts, and handy quick-reference guides. Most are only offered to our students, but for a limited time, we’ve made some of them free downloadables.
One of the things that I’ve noticed in my coaching of Scrum teams is how difficult it is to do Effective Backlog Refinement. So, I thought I might release a series of short blog posts focused on backlog refinement, what it is and how it works.
If you want to see all our video content, you’ll have to become a student… but don’t worry, we’ve got some great free videos available as well! Our list of videos is growing constantly, so be sure to check back often.
When it comes to product backlog items, bigger is definitely NOT better! We’ve put all our resources about slicing in one place, so that your team can home those skills and slice your way to optimally-sized PBIs.
Product Ownership has unique challenges that come with the territory, so we have specific materials to help as you take an active interest in creating a product rather than just managing its development.
Here’s what some of our clients had to say about us:
"I took a Scrum Master course and was completely impressed. Agile and Scrum are concepts that do not exist in a vacuum. Without real business contexts, and especially real software development experience, Agile doesn't mean much. It was Jim's ability to teach the material with his ﬁnger always on best practices that made the class a home run."
Pete Lunenfeld, Executive V.P., Registry Monitoring Insurance Services, Inc.
"I recently took the Certiﬁed ScrumMaster class. Not only did our instructor thoroughly understand the course material and knows how to teach it well but he also has many real-world examples to further enhance one's learning. I really enjoyed the class and learned a lot!"
Barbara Kroczak, Senior Program Manager, Riverbed Technology
"CSM training with Artisan was the best training that I have ever taken. The class was lively and interactive. They covered Agile fundamentals and material relevant to the CSM exam. They were not hesitant to take questions and had lots of examples from real world experience. I passed the CSM exam with an almost perfect score without help from any other sources."
Farhan Hamlani, Information Technology, E*TRADE Financial Corporation
"I had the pleasure of attending a 2-day seminar on Agile and it was fantastic. If you are looking to improve your understanding of Agile from someone who has done it (not just someone who read it) for years, Artisan is the one. I have attended many other seminars but none as plain and simple. Most coaches add an unnatural aura to Agile as if it were some mystic and ancient magic. Artisan presents these concepts in a dispassionate yet highly precise manner."
