The main aim was providing a deeper understanding to its participants about the fundamentals of Scrum and its implementation in real projects.

During the class, Geir Amsjø highlighted that it is impossible to only implement Scrum into an engineering process. He emphasized that for really impressive results all people engaged in the incremental delivery of every single iteration must be involved in the Scrum process. Moreover, they need to understand its principles and follow them.

Anna Aleksyeyeva, class participant, Symphony Solutions:

I’d like to say great thanks to the organizers, because having such training in our city is really cool. The class is certainly worth attending. It is a place where you can meet new personalities, discuss different themes, ask questions and receive answers. The class gives you an opportunity to share your experience and learn from others”.

Khrystyna Romanko, class participant, CoreValue:

“I really enjoyed the event. It was very well organized and coordinated with opportunity to network and learn from each other. This was my first Scrum training so I was excited about the idea of meeting Geir Amsjø and other participants.

From the start of the master class right to the last minute, all my expectations were met. It was a great experience. I think working in groups on different Scrum activities and real-life case studies is one of the most useful parts of the class. It is also important that we learned how to live the Agile values, be a servant leader and stick to the Scrum process while keeping an eye on continuous improvement.”
