Introduction to Scrum Patterns
Scrum community experts have been collecting these secrets for years, and working together to write them down as patterns. Even the inventor of Scrum, Jeff Sutherland, now uses them as a central part of his training and of describing Scrum. And now they’re freely available to you. Come and learn how to use them and what they mean to your organization, and how you can use them to chart a powerful new direction of kaizen for your Scrum team!
You’ll learn things about Scrum at a deeper level than you probably reached during your CSM, PSM, or CSPO training - and we can focus the seminar on your team’s special needs. You will learn the secrets that Scrum’s designers and foremost practitioners use to reap all the benefits of lean and agile, including advanced techniques for multi-team Scrums.
All participants of the course get a copy of the book.

Testimonials from former online-training participants
An introduction to a book that is a deep-dive into scrum that goes way beyond the Scrum Guide! Great knowledge and insights from the speaker. - Søren Olsen
James Coplien’s Scrum Patterns course is the most important course I ever taken in my professional career and I consider my Scrum education to be pretty broad and reasonably deep. James is certainly in the top 3 Scrum minds on the planet and it really shows on his course - he can answer almost anything and his warm and selfless style is engaging. It was fantastic. - Richard Lissimore
I would recommend this class. It provides valuable insight to the Scrum Patterns theory and practical aspects. - Dimitrios Tsigkakos
