Last Minute Auction: On-Site Certified ScrumMaster Course on eBay

Necessity is the mother of invention. Peter Hundermark and I had planned an exchange of experiences. He and I would co-teach a pair of CSM courses, one in Geneva, Switzerland and one in Capetown, South Africa.

Well, the course in Geneva did not really sell, so what's the plan B? Usually customers want in-house training on very short notice, but most Scrum Trainers are booked two or three months in advance.

So we decided to cancel the public training and offer a company training on the same date via eBay. Result: we sold the course! An interesting experiment, which helped us out of a difficult situation. And I learned a lot in the process. Look for more auctions in the future...
