Collaboration Explained Class – Day 1

I am currently in Boulder taking the Collaboration Explained class at Rally.  We just completed day 1 of 2 and so far, this class has been just awesome!

One of my biggest pet peeves around the Certified Scrum Master class/workshop is that anyone that wants to go and sit in on a 2 day class and pay the money for it is suddenly a “certified” ScrumMaster.  I know from personal experience that by getting “certified” I was no where near being equipped or qualified to serve as a good Scrum Master on my team (or any team for that matter).

In my opinion, THIS class would be a much better CSM class.  This class is all about giving you the tools and techniques needed to be a good servant leader and facilitator.  I am already overloaded with a ton of great tools and techniques that I will be able to take back to my job and start using immediately.  

I am a huge fan of the Collaboration Explained book by Jean Tabaka and this class is the greatest compliment to it.   If you haven’t read the book, do so as soon as you can.  Once you have read it, do everything you can to attend this class – it is well worth it! 

I am going to wait until the class is over to post my favorite moments and take-aways.
