Re: [scrumdevelopment] Relative value of Mike Cohn CSM vs more generic CSM
- I second Ron's sentiment. I was fortunate to have Jeff Sutherland co-teach my CSM class and while I don't think it cost me any extra, I would have certainly paid the equivalent of a couple hundred extra pounds for the privilege, and I'd put Mike Cohn into that group as well. Jeff's stories from the field, and from his years and years of Scrum experience were invaluable and highly illustrative and provided illumination into how all this would work in the real world.
Now, how much extra would I pay to attend a Scrum course taught by Bonnie Raitt? Now there's a good question.... :-)

Hi Michael,Yes. Your company should pay it, actually.

Hi Michael,Yes, It is important to be fair, especially if you can also be stupid at the same time. :)On Jan 23, 2012, at 7:12 AM, Michael Jones wrote:
