Being Agile

Scrum & Kanban seminar

Posted by on May 1, 2013


At the end of March Hugsmiðjan held a “science trip” for Agilenetið and among the attendees was Martha from Dokkan who asked me the following day if I’d be willing to teach Kanban at the Bezta learning line. I was more than willing since I truly believe that everybody can learn from Agile & Lean and the draft was ready almost instantly and we tossed it back and forth the next days. At the beginning of April the seminar was advertised online open for anybody interested in these fun ways of managing work.

The Bezta Scrum & Kanban seminar went as expected yesterday at Nauthóll: nice location, great people, good atmosphere, lots of learning, fun, games and communication.

Everybody was pleased and everything went mostly as planned. Some time estimates didn’t quite hold but I made small alterations to keep us on track and overall I was very pleased. The attendees were also pleased according to the evaluation notes they gave. There were two that wanted more detail & in-depth information along with example stories. Great points that I’ll take into the next “version” of the seminar and I already have some ideas that will help in dealing better with the “veterans” =)

When preparing for the seminar I only got through about two iterations of the slides. I really look forward to getting them through a few more versions and added changes from the points above…then they should be really good.

Thanks to everybody who attended =)
