How to get twice the value of training, in half the cost and time

June 6, 2018 — Posted by Al Shalloway

In "The Art of Doing Twice the Work in Half the Time" Jeff Sutherland explains how Scrum can quadruple your effectiveness. At Net Objectives we’ve come up with an octupling when it relates to learning. We call it “learning twice as much in half the time for half the cost" Becoming Agile at the team level requires understanding many different aspects of software dev. We have found that an initial focus on a framework leads to a lack of absorption of what is needed &has many developers feel that their meeting burden has increased. We reverse this focus by having our workshops focus on the work, not the framework. And by helping people do their own work, not a canned example. This results in participants in our workshop actually writing good stories instead of just learning what they are supposed to do to get them. Also, by combining critical related concepts with an experienced instructor and a rich self-paced learning and support system online, we provide training in:

  • Scrum
  • Acceptance Test Driven Development
  • Going from being a Scrum “master” to a truly good Scrum Master
  • Core understanding of what quality code is

The live workshops alone double the value while being priced at about 70% of standard training. The online training makes it even of greater value.
