Here's what students are saying about the course

  • Very simple to understand and well organized without too much jargon or details
  • It was good, educational content
  • Didactical, to the point, addictive
  • Explained in simple terms easy to understand and follow, also delivered in a logical Systems approach to training
  • Very compact information in an entertaining setup
  • The clarity in which you describe the two different frameworks.
  • I like the idea to browse through the video to get the overall idea of the course. Given I did this again this year, more of a refresher and noticing if either definitions or concepts had changed.
  • Easy to understand
  • Short and clear

Has the world gone mad?

If you’re new to Agile, you’d be forgiven for thinking you’ve just entered a madhouse, or some strange parallel dimension.

There’s a whole new vocabulary. And the way things are done is, well, weird.

If you’ve had training, you’re one of the lucky ones. Most of us - myself included - are thrown in the deep end.

I've been there

In 2012 I walked into the offices of the BBC to join a team that was “doing Agile”.

And it was a shock to the system.

Being a cog in machine (I’m a humble developer), I couldn’t see the big picture. It took months - years - for me to piece things together.

As the mists began to clear - as started figuring out the pieces of the puzzle - I started to post videos on YouTube.

And something else became clear: my experience was not unique. Far from it.

People told me that after watching my videos they finally “got it”. That it finally “clicked”.

(And some of those people had been trained!)

Help is at hand

I’m delighted that my videos have helped in some small way.

(Development That Pays is now the No.1 Agile channel on YouTube.)

But I wanted to to more.

So I created a course.

A Crash Course.

The Scrum vs Kanban Crash Course.

Who is it for?

Are you...

  • A qualified Scrum Master?
  • A qualified Agile Coach?

... then this course is not for you.

Do you have...

  • Have a decade of Agile experience?

... then this course is not for you.

But if you are:

  • new to Scrum...
  • new to Kanban...
  • and especially if you’re new to Agile...

... then this course is perfect for you.

The Scrum vs Kanban Crash Course was designed to get you up to speed in the shortest possible time.

What's in the course?

Let me give you a quick peek inside.

  • To kick things off, we'll take a look at Scrum - and Kanban - fit into Agile.
  • In Chapter I take you step by step through Scrum...
  • ... and in Chapter 3 I take you step by step through Kanban.
  • Why does Scrum work? Why does Kanban work? Believe it or not, both Scrum and Kanban share a common "engine".
  • In the final lesson, we line up Scrum and Kanban side by side - to compare and contrast. We highlight their differences - AND their similarities.

By the end of the course...

By the end of the course:

  • You’ll be able to spot Scrum and Kanban in the wild
  • You’ll be able to identify the key features of each

Not only that, but you’ll know:

  • Why we do what we do in Scrum
  • Why we do what we do in Kanban
