The Elements of Scrum

In this experiential workshop, you will learn scrum by doing scrum. You will become familiar with the principles and practices of scrum. You will build skills needed to be a member of a high-performing, continuously improving, self-organizing scrum team.

This workshop is based on the best selling book The Elements of Scrum by Chris Sims and Hillary Louise Johnson. It is delivered using the innovative agile games and simulations that Agile Learning Labs is famous for. The workshop is customizable and can be delivered in two 8-hour sessions or four 4-hour sessions.

Applying what we’ve learned in the first two days within the product development portion where we would alternate between SM, PO, developers was great stuff and the hands on training made it click for me.
5 thumbs up from me!

We asked Chris the tricky questions that we have been struggling with for some time. He took them head-on, giving directly applicable advice and relevant follow-up content for every curve ball we threw at him. Chris focused on the value of the scrum rituals, rather than “do this because the book says so.” The scrum simulation, Once Upon A Scrum, was a fun, frantic exercise that required us to constantly evolve.

The hands on exercises were great. The way you used the video conferencing technology made it as effective as in person. Thank you again for the great two days!

Your workshop was the catalyst for a lot of changes here at Motoshop. Everyone is bought into the new process and we’re getting better collaboration, transparency, and teamwork. We’re just a couple of sprints in and still working out the kinks, but it already has been a big improvement!


Bobby Chen
Director of Product Management and Engineering, Motoshop


Our team valued the training quite a bit. We still refer to it and we’ve made real improvements in our scrum process.

The training was everything I had hoped for! Engaging, fun, and informative!
