It would not be an overstatement to say that Scrum is a way of life at Inphina. We follow a combination of Scrum and XP in every software development project we undertake. Not limiting Scrum to software development, we also use it to effectively manage our administrative and operational activities as well. People at Inphina have been practicing Scrum since several years and under different roles. They have conducted trainings, spoken at conferences, written articles and regularly share their experiences at web-sites considered to be reference in Agile methodologies. It was but quite natural for us to get more involved. As a first step in the direction, together with Michael Franken from Zilverline, we organized our first CSM course in New Delhi on 12 & 13 August’2010. Being our first attempt, we were very pleasantly surprised first at very enthusiastic registration and later at a very high satisfaction level about the course from the attendees. Below are the results of the formal evaluation from the participants:
You can also read some of the participant testimonials and brief summary of the training here.
Encouraged by the results and fun we had while organizing the last training, we are going one step further this time. We are very happy to announce Combined CSM & CSPO Course on 17,18 and 19 Dec’2010. Similar to last time, the training will be organized at centrally located, calm and conducive for learning environment of India Habitat Centre, New Delhi.
The Scrum agile development process continues to gain popularity across a wide variety of businesses and products. Adapting Scrum as a software development and project management approach involves a paradigm shift from traditional practices.
With an aim of increasing awareness about these methodologies and helping our peers learn from widely acclaimed expert in the domain, Inphina is proud to announce first Certified Scrum Master Course in New Delhi on August 12 and 13’2010. We are organizing this course in collaboration with Michael Franken.
