I would say that my knowledge in Scrum implementation is half full, that's why I really enjoy this 3-day session, it was enlightening and I wish I can implement better and coach my team better.

I learned that when implementing Scrum, not all Scrum events have to be implemented at once. Instead, we should optimize it according to the teams' current condition.
