========================================================

Q.Is this training really FREE for PMPs? If so, what is the catch?

A. The course is free and there is no catch. The Agile Boston user group intends to train 1000 PMPs in genuine and authentic Agile practices and thinking. We believe the best way to do this is to offer a free class to PMPs. See more detail below.

One of Agile Boston's values is 'Serve Others'. We are executing on that with this program. Learn more about Agile Boston values here.

Q. I am a member of PMI and I am studying for the PMP but I do not have it yet. Can I attend?

A. Yes you may attend for just $149 which includes lunch.

Q. I am not a member of PMI. May I attend?

A. Yes, you may also attend for just $149 which includes lunch.

Q. Why $149??

A. The average cost of any kind of Agile-related is $500. "Certified Scrum Master' training in and around Boston costs up to $800 a day !!

We want you to attend this full-immersion 1-day Agile training. It is the real deal, and suitable for ANYONE new to Agile. We are providing you with a discount of over 67% off of that price.

The hugely discounted price includes your lunch and materials. Expect to have a great time !!

Q. What are the goals and objectives of this Agile training?

A. Students exit this class grounded in Agile fundamentals including iterative/incremental development, frequent inspection, collaborative roles, Agile estimating and planning, incremental delivery, conducting retrospectives, iteration and release planning, failing fast, deferring commitment, minimum marketable features, Agile roles and more !

This course contains everything you need to get started with learning genuine and authentoic Agile. However, we do not represent nor do we warrant that the course content and related materials are fit for any particular purpose.

Q.Why is this class free for PMPs but costs others a typical price for a day of training?

A. The primary purpose of this class is to give PMPs a good grounding in genuine and authentic Agile. Secondly, $149 is a very cheap training day. We teach Agile and Scrum in this class.

Typical prices for Scrum training are priced at up to $800 per day. This course is a 1-day class in authentic Agile fundamentals, and includes some training in Scrum. This is a quality course and is priced in alignment with our goals to raise the level of Agility in the Boston region, and to introduce 1000 PMPs to Agility by December 31, 2012.

This goal assumes the world does not come to an end before our deadline.

Q. The registration system doesn't ask me for my PMP information. What do I do after I register?

A. Just bring your information to the class and you are all set. Go up to the PMI web site and print out your up-to-date credential information (or get it some other way) and bring it with you to the class. Everyone registering at the "free-except-for-lunch price" of $15 MUST show proof of an up-to-date PMP certification. This price is for valid PMPs ONLY.

Q. Will I be ready to take the exam and pass it after this class?

A. This is a first course in Agile for PMPs and others new to Agile. This class is about getting you grounded in genuine and authentic Agile concepts and thinking. You'll need that to be truly successful with Agile. How you choose to use the course content is entirely up to you.

Q. Is this class fun?

A. People who attend this class say they like it a lot !!

Q. What about support after the class?

A. We answer your questions on Agile for 30 days as part of what you receive for attendance.

Q. Why Is the Agile Boston User Group doing this?

A. The mission of Agile Boston is: to encourage & help the Greater Boston Agile community to become the most active, most innovative & most vibrant Agile learning community on the planet, by any measure that can be named.

We are doing this because training Boston-based PMPs in Agile, for free, is aligned with our stated intention.

Q. How long is lunch?

A. Lunch is about a half hour

Q. The registration system says the class is kid-friendly. What does this mean?

A. It means you can bring your kid to the class for free if you want. Kids do not get materials and need to bring their own lunch, unless they register.

 

This kid is a LEGOS expert and is making a suggestion to his team-- all adults-- during an Agile simulation game. On Agile teams, leadership moves around from iteration to iteration, and from person to person, depending on the nature of the work at hand. Everyone does everything-- including sharing domain expertise when asked.

A. You may bring one kid between the ages of 8 and 14 inclusive.

Q. What kinds of things will we do in the class?

A. We will hear some lectures, engage in Q&A, do group-level exercises, make and keep commitments, experience iterative and collaborative work, and have fun while we learn this Agile stuff. And, you'll meet new people and make some friends as we go along. Adults of any age and kids between the ages of 8 and 14 have lots of fun in this class.

 

Hey, it's not all fun and games. These students are learning about self-organization and informal authorization.
