      Very well done MJ, on two fronts.
      1.  Being smart enough to do the pre-test.  What a great technique!
      2.  Inspecting and adapting to your client's needs.  I'm sure they appreciate that.

      I would think to have a true advanced scrum class a pre-test should be a pre-requisite(maybe not required, but strongly suggested).  I know some of you might not want to point towards Scrum.org, and I respect that, but using their "Scrum Open" test might be an opportunity for a decent pre-test.

      I was just asked to run an advanced training for a place that thought they had the fundamentals down pat.  I tested the participants at the beginning and discovered some of them thought the ScrumMaster manages the team and prioritizes the product backlog, the primary measure of progress is estimates vs. actuals, there are separate Sprints for inception, elaboration, construction and transition, final integration should be deliberately postponed until the last Sprint, Scrum is primarily for known requirements and known technology, Scrum prescribes what to do in every situation, etc.  So the first day wound up being *remedial* Scrum training.  I suspect most places that want "advanced" Scrum training didn't really get it the first time.  Since most trainers don't test their participants yet, it's no surprise this goes undetected.

      Scrum is popular because it's so damn simple. Why would you want to learn advanced techniques with Scrum?

      can look
      forward to some advanced practices.
      Any thoughts, suggestions, experinces to share?
