AdvanScrum class with Danko Kovatch in Prague

Danko Kovatch, Certified Scrum Trainer, is coming to Prague to deliver interesting workshop AdvanScrum. See details below.

 

Although Scrum has become the most popular framework for Agile development, many individuals and companies practicing Scrum find themselves lacking in real understanding on how to operate in Scrum, how to instill and maintain the needed mind set and, no less important, how to make sure it will "stick".   

AdvanScrum is derived from Scrum, but is focused on tested and practical tools, techniques and solutions. 

AdvanScrum is based on empirical collective experience and best practices, collected and perfected in dozens of successful implementations. It can be applied immediately in your day to day work.

Date: 18-19 May, 2015
Location: Prague, Czech Republic
