In May of 2011 I was able to run my first Pay It Forward Scrum Training at the University of Bern in Switzerland. I had blogged about this event here: The 1000 Students Challenge
Last week-end I had the third run at the University of Applied Sciences (HS-AlbSig) in Albstadt, Germany. 20 students volunteered their week-ends to learn about Scrum by attending the Scrum.org Professional Scrum Master Training or short PSM. The class was an even mixture of Master and Bachelor students. It’s been great fun for them and myself and it is good to know that 20 future and current IT specialists will join the workforce pre-equipped with Agile and Scrum.
A big thanks to the Hochschule Albstadt for being supportive and to Kunt Kliem for organizing.
My mission is to train 1000 students in Scrum – 918 more to go …
