Dr. Jeff Sutherland, PatientKeeper, USA
Jeff started the first Scrum at Easel Corporation in 1993 and worked with Scrum Co-Creator Ken Schwaber, to formalize the Scrum development process at OOPSLA'95. In the same year, Sutherland provided Kent Beck all background information on the creation of Scrum. XP engineering practices then evolved along with SCRUM and the two leading Agile development processes work well together. Scrum and XP are the most widely used Agile processes worldwide and their creators are authors of the Agile Manifesto. Jeff is CTO and Worldwide Scrum Consulting Practice Manager for PatientKeeper. His company started Scrum seven years ago as a startup and involves the whole company in the Scrum process including senior management. He leads many of his Scrum Certification courses at PatientKeeper where the Chief Product Owner reviews the PatientKeeper Product Backlog and explains how to run a MetaScrum of stakeholders and how to ship dozens of production releases of software every year. Jeff has been VP of Engineering and/or CTO for 9 software product companies, developing Scrum in 4 of them and introducing today's standard Scrum methodology to 5 of them. As CTO of PatientKeeper and IDX, he used Scrum to capture industry leadership for mobile application platforms in healthcare, enabling physicians to enhance revenue, reduce cost, and improve patient care.

Course Overview:
This two-day course not only provides the fundamental principles of Scrum, it also gives participants hands-on experience using Scrum. This course puts theory into action through a 59-minute Scrum, which simulates a Scrum project through a non-technical group exercise. During the course, attendees will learn why such a seemingly simple process such as Scrum can have such profound effects on an organization. Participants gain practical experience working with Scrum tools and activities such as the product backlog, sprint backlog, daily Scrum meetings, Sprint Planning meeting, and Burndown Charts. Participants leave knowing how to apply Scrum to all sizes of projects, from a single collocated team to a large, highly distributed team. Following successful completion of the course, each participant will be designated Certified ScrumMaster. This certification includes a one-year membership in the Scrum Alliance, where additional ScrumMaster-only material and information are available.

Participants Will Learn:
• Practical, project-proven practices
• The essentials of getting a project off on the right foot
• How to write user stories for the product backlog
• Why there's more to leading a self-organizing team than buying pizza and getting
out of the way
• How to help both new and experienced teams be more successful
• How to successfully scale Scrum to large, multi-continent projects with team sizes
in the hundreds
• Tips and tricks from the instructor's ten-plus years of using Scrum in a wide
variety of environments
