Being Agile

Trello seminar

Trello seminar

I got an invite to teach Trello at Endurmenntun following that one of my students from Agile Project Management knew of my fondness of the tool through that class. So when they needed someone to teach Trello I was the first one that she thought of…and I’m always up for sharing good things.

The setup was for both beginners and more advanced and I’ve run that format for two time now and decided to split it up since the difference in usage is so great that I can’t satisfy everyone.+

So I’m going to break the course up into two parts, starting with trying out a basic course “Trello – First steps” in March 2019 and we’ll see how that goes…

Scrum roles & responsibilities game printouts

Posted by on Nov 7, 2018

The Scrum Roles and Responsibilities game over at TastyCupCakes.org is a great game to use when teaching the scrum roles and getting participants to discuss amongst themselves what each roles does.

I’ve played this a couple of time and its always great to have two team clearing out their understanding together. So this is a pretty good way to follow up on teaching that can be used for any follow up. 

I’ve always been a “player” and when I decided to use this for the first time recently I knew that I had to have something else than index cards. So I created a printout with two different backgrounds (two sets), laminated and cut out…I was pleased =)

Here is the 12 page (select two sided printing and end up with 6 pages) PDF for anyone else to reuse:

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 😉

Retrospective

There were some good points that emerged:

  • More time – bigger course (this is already in progress 😉
  • 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 =)
