Topic: Stump the Trainer!!!
This is going to be fun…..Do you have at least one burning Agile question? Something that you’ve not been able to get a really good answer on? If so, bring that Agile and/or Scrum question for Mike Vizdos and Bob Hartman. This is your opportunity to get some answers. There is no specific topic other than something Agile or Scrum related. If you stump the trainers, you’ll win some cool prizes!
BONUS: How would you like become a Certified Scrum Master (CSM) …for FREE? At this meeting, we will be giving away a FREE Scrum Master Certification. Yes, this is the “official” Certified Scrum Master (CSM) class. Here’s what’s happening – Mike and Bob are in town co-teaching a Certified Scrum Master class on March 21-22nd. Fortunately for us, that class completely sold out. So, they are opening up a second class on March 24-25. This class is local, which means no hotel and no airfare! Drum roll…..anyone who comes to this month’s Stump the Trainer meeting can take 10% off the $1250 price; at least one person will get 25% off of $1250, and one lucky person will get a completely free entry into the course.
