Anyone with experience in Agile/Scrum willing to chat?

#ask #advice TLDR: (1) Anyone with experience in Agile/Scrum willing to chat? (2) Career transition assistance/advice for film industry workers:Hi all! My sister and brother-in-law both work in the film industry out in LA (as a script supervisor and a producer, respectively). As COVID has all but shut down the industry (and it’s uncertain when filming might resume), they’re exploring how they could apply their skills in other fields (ideally remote-friendly ones). They're specifically considering Agile/Scrum certification, but would love the opportunity to connect with anyone in the field to get a clearer sense of what it's like (and how much their current skills might serve them). Would any Elphans be willing to hop on a zoom call and connect with them? Additionally, if anyone is familiar with any orgs/courses that do the following, please let me know. I'd be forever grateful! -Organizations that run virtual events -Organizations that create educational film content-Media orgs looking for show runners-Great agile/scrum short-term courses-Funding/scholarships for reskilling workers for new industriesGiven their experience, project management, virtual event management, or program management could potentially be good fits. Any insights whatsoever would be greatly appreciated since - like so many COVID affected workers - they haven't been able to work in months. :(Thanks Elphans!
Hi @lauramarks! I'm an Agile Coach/PM who has been fully remote for 4 1/2 years and has applied Agile and Scrum beyond software projects. I'd be open to a chat. Please feel free to DM me.I did my certs several years ago with Mike Cohn of Mountain Goat Software and would highly recommend them - they're offering virtual.'ve also connected with Scrum, Inc. folks and have heard great things about their trainings. check out Kim Antelo, a seasoned Scrum trainer who recently went independent.
Mountain Goat is sort of the OG of agile training, their stuff is good. I have a couple books from them, definitely recommended.
They can look into these jobs:Siri - Conversation Writer Chatbot Writer'm taking an online agile course from Coursera, Agile with Atlassian Jira. I find it very useful and applicable. Jira is one of the most popular Agile project management application. The course also covers Scrum. If they don't need a certificate, the course is free. With the certificate, it is $49.Good luck!
Hi -- also lots of courses available through lynda (now linkedin learning) which is free through my local library (same as their's, loving LAPL!): I also work in agile/scrum, but in the tech space, although happy to connect if it's of interest. Google has courses as well (no experience whatsoever) and I'd seen they were giving scholarships, so may be worth looking into:
