We Changed Our Website Again!
Well, it was nice while it lasted, but we're getting so busy here that it's become nearly impossible to continue to build our website on a tool that we created. So, bye bye homegrown tool, hello somebody else's tool!!! Seriously, one of things we've learned over the past several years is to focus on that which we're good at. So, while we can definitely build a website tool, we're MUCH better at Agile Transformations and Scrum Training. Enjoy the new website -- we'll continue to add more and more as time permits, but at least we won't be wasting time building a tool! You can find our course descriptions (including NEW courses we're planning right now!) here.
Our public class schedule will always be here on our home page, and our blog posts can be found here.
If you've got a question for us, or just something you'd like to see added to the website, just click here.

Artisan Software Consulting Books
Check out the "ScrumMaster Study Guide" by Jim Schiel. Examining the questions most commonly asked by students attending Certified Scrum Master (CSM) and Certified Scrum Product Owner (CSPO) classes, this book provides an accessible introduction to the concepts of Scrum and Agile Development. It compile the insights gained by the author in teaching more than 100 CSM classes and countless seminars.
Describing how to sell agile development to upper management and customers, the book illustrates real-world implementation of agile development, addressing the roles and responsibilities of each team member as well as some of the things that can go wrong in an implementation.

"The points on product backlog grooming have helped sprint planning tremendously. Also the information on splitting stories and how to handle bugs...have really helped move us forward. I would have considered this impossible a year ago.... The customers have loved the increased interaction and ability to drive the product functionality, the [developers] have really enjoyed and thrived with their new-found empowerment, and we all have enjoyed [delivering a] high-quality product!"
