Being Agile

Teaching Agile Project Management (second iteration)

Posted by on Mar 1, 2018

Again teaching Agile at the University of Iceland for a few days (over a period of a few weeks). Setup was pretty much as the last time

I did work on some improvements this time around so I had a Trello board for a better overview and the
slides were improved a little by having just one slideshow to access them all…but this one still has links to the others so this wasn’t a complete package πŸ˜‰

Retrospective

There were some good points that emerged:

  • More time – bigger course (this is already in progress πŸ˜‰
  • One slideshow with all slides (not link to other slides)
  • Trello training
  • Scrum “science trip(s)”
  • Logi invite some students to taste his beer

    This year I graded group projects and that was a learning curve =)

    I was happy with everything, specially those who showed up all the days…hopefully this will be a better/bigger course next year =)

    I didn’t know that Q&A wasn’t this year so the talk was way shorter than expected πŸ˜‰
