People10, a global application outsourcing and a differentiated IT consulting company, has introduced an advanced scrum master boot camp, a program designed to empower practicing scrum masters and Certified Scrum Master professionals (CSM) advance their practices to the next level. Divided into activity filled three days (July 26, 27 and 28, 2012), participants will benefit from best practices and insights from the knowledge libraries of People10, transforming numerous delivery teams to agile practices and real life challenges faced by co participants. End of every module is a collaborative roadmap creation session that would help the participants with real solutions they could implement in their project teams.
People10 claims to have seen it time and again, that after completing certifications and theoretical sessions, practicing scrum masters often face challenges. Those include managing stake holder expectations, getting the best out teams, negotiating schedules, conflicts arising out of non-alignment between client teams and delivery teams, educating stakeholders around scrum best practices, providing right kind of information to senior management, aligning to organizational PMO and processes etc. This eventually leads to failure in agile adoption in organizations. When asked why select Scrum as the improvisation method in the agile context, Nisha Shoukath, COO and Principal Agilist at People10 says,“Scrum is one the most prominent method of agile in service delivery teams, and a recent survey has shown that more than 80% of agile teams start with scrum practices. In order to have good success with Scrum, knowing how to handle real-life situations in agile context is a crucial success factor, and this is where most companies have gaps as they believe that theoretical know-how and basic certifications will be able to transform the delivery process”
Over the period of three days, participants will be coached on an array of subjects like insight into the Scrum Master’s role perception, meeting stakeholder expectations, win-win negotiations with stakeholders, to structuring and fostering self-sustained agile teams. Apart from this, the workshop will address the specific real-life challenges faced by Scrum Masters and help them to find right solution. As an introductory offer, People10 is also extending 6 months of continued support if the participants face road blocks in their delivery teams. They will also benefit from a complimentary session on new age engineering practices like continuous delivery.
