Since March 2020, we have been advising the Carl Severing Vocational College for Business and Administration of the City of Bielefeld on the introduction of agile working methods in the Higher Commercial School course. Two pilot teams are leading the way as pioneers in agile school development: the Higher Commercial School Management Team and the Digital Classroom Team. In the medium to long term, the aim is to transfer agile working methods to the teaching of other teachers and thus also to the classroom (Scrum4Schools as a learning method).

The IMS Lanzendorf is a secondary school located in Lower Austria and is known for its progressive teaching methods. For about 10 years the school has been offering interest- and society-oriented lessons for about 200 young people aged 10 to 15 years. Starting in the 3rd grade, students choose between the subject areas of technology (MINT), ecology or economics, thus promoting their individual strengths. The school setup is embedded in an overall concept of personal space, care and leisure.

At IMS Lanzendorf, self-determined work is at the heart of school education. One component is Scrum4Schools - we have been using it for over 1.5 years in different dosages. Personally, I am very much convinced of Scrum4Schools as a methodology because it takes into account the spirit of the times. Scrum4Schools is efficient and allows students an incredibly high degree of self-control - an ability that prepares them optimally for their later (working) life.

The Munich University of Applied Sciences is one of the largest universities for applied sciences in Germany. Around 18,400 students currently choose from a range of courses in the fields of technology, economics, social studies and design. The focus of the university is on applied research and practical orientation with partners from business, society and politics. In addition to academic qualifications for experts and managers, a course of study at the University of Applied Sciences Munich also offers scientific specializations that prepare students for a doctorate.

I use Scrum4Schools in my business administration lectures and make the connection to very practical topics. In one lecture, for example, students designed the introduction of agile principles in a large company. After a short familiarization period Scrum4Schools helped the students enormously to structure, coordinate and design their work. I would like to emphasize the continuous feedback process at Scrum4Schools and the preparation and guidance by borisgloger consulting.
