Lean UX with Joshua Seiden, warm-up act executive agility with John Coleman

COVID-19 situation

In light of the COVID-19 situation ...

Due to COVID-19, this class will be held virtually.  Please use the links below to contact the trainer for more details.

If the event proceeds at a local venue face to face (possible if matters improve): 

  1. All attendees are expected to follow WHO advice in relation to behavior in the workshop and for their travel. See https://www.who.int/emergencies/diseases/novel-coronavirus-2019/advice-for-public and https://www.who.int/news-room/articles-detail/updated-who-recommendations-for-international-traffic-in-relation-to-covid-19-outbreak.  See “returning travelers” section at https://www.gov.uk/guidance/coronavirus-covid-19-information-for-the-public which lists affected areas. In order to reduce anxiety for other attendees, registered attendees who travel from "affected' areas or who were in "affected" areas in recent months should make it known to John Coleman they traveled from or were in "affected' areas in recent months so that alternative arrangements can be made to suit all attendees (remote training for all or remote training for attendees from "affected" areas or postponement).

  2. The working agreement for each workshop will start from a position of recommendations from the WHO. If attendees are unwilling or unable to follow WHO advice, they should make this known to John Coleman, so alternative arrangements can be made. In addition, there will be no handshaking, and at the workshop, only elbow pumps or more distant greetings will be permitted regardless of the culture one originates from. Activities will be changed to remove infection risks. John Coleman will seek acknowledgment & acceptance of the above conditions by email prior to the event so that John can reassure other attendees or make alternative arrangements for people.

In the event of postponement by attendees for face to face events, John Coleman would like to reduce anxiety. As long as John Coleman has not already committed spend in the city already, postponement is without penalty for a maximum period of 12 months. John commits to venues and travel costs only three business days to go for maximum flexibility (number changes etc.); attendees should do the same and take responsibility for the same. Training is transferable to other cities/dates/course-types in John Coleman's usual locations, and attendees can suggest dates that have not even been announced yet. Just because one doesn't see dates in John Coleman's schedule beyond 6 months doesn't mean events won't be scheduled in 6-12 months; new dates most certainly will be scheduled and attendees can help to shape those dates.

This workshop has been converted to a virtual classroom of 8 X 90-minute Zoom calls with "breakout rooms", with Scrum.org permission and attendee permission. For those who partake in virtual classroom training, use personal account and devices from home please, expect to see John at a flip chart under a 4K HD camera and lighting, on a Zoom call with breakout rooms, with online simulations, Google Docs, and online collaboration via commercial tools John Coleman has licenses to use with attendees. There will also offline coffee breaks followed by online coffee breaks for chatter. John Coleman hopes that some remote attendees are willing to be recorded for snippets so others can see how we simulate the f2f learning experience as much as possible, and hopefully how much attendees like it.


Live Virtual Classroom. People who would not have traveled to this location pre-COVID-19 would be ineligible. See COVID-19 situation text at the top of this page. The same dates and attendees will join from home.
