Dr. Jacobson to Deliver Public Lecture at Chalmers University

On 20 April, 2018, Dr. Ivar Jacobson will instruct a public lecture at Chalmers University. During his talk, he will revisit the history of methods, explain why we need to break out of our repetitive dysfunctional behavior, and introduce Essence: a new way of thinking that promises many things, one of them being to dramatically change the way we educate in software development to increase the competency in our profession.

The new tool will launch in February at Certified Scrum classes taught by the co-creator of Scrum, Dr. Jeff Sutherland in the United Kingdom.

Scrum Inc., the world’s premier Scrum training and consulting provider, today announced that it has been working with its partner Ivar Jacobson International (IJI), a leading consulting, coaching and training company for enterprise-scale agile software development, to apply Essence to build a navigable glossary of the essential elements of Scrum. This glossary will be used at Scrum Inc. and in Certified Scrum training courses, hosted by IJI and taught by Jeff Sutherland in the United Kingdom in February 2018.

Of course, your (favorite) method will resurrect with the liberated practices

The way we develop software struggles to keep pace with changes in technology and business. Even with the rise of agile we still see people flip-flopping from one branded method (or to be more fashionable framework) to another throwing away the good with the bad, and behaving more like religious cultists than scientists.

Dr. Ivar Jacobson delivered this presentation at a keynote address at SECR Russia in October 2017. He revisited the history of methods, explained why we need to break out of our repetitive dysfunctional behavior, and introduced Essence: a new way of thinking that promises to liberate the practices and enable true learning organizations.

Software Engineering Conference in Russia (SECR) is one of the brightest annual IT events in the country. The 13th edition of the SECR will take place on October, 20-22 in Saint-Petersburg and the conference program will include a key-note address by IJI Chairman Dr. Ivar Jacobson.
