The course provides the foundational knowledge needed to work with Scrum in a highly practical way.
The course is a combination of instruction and team-based exercises where participants experience how the Scrum framework improves product development efforts.
Over the 2 days, participants are introduced to the mechanics of Scrum, gaining insights into overcoming complexity, dealing with team based collaboration and self-organization as essential elements in mastering Scrum.
Participants work together as a team in a series of Sprints to build a software application, thereby facing real-life problems. The mechanics, roles, and principles of Scrum are leveraged during the exercises. From its emphasis on the practical application of Scrum, the course exposes common missteps and misunderstandings so participants grow a higher awareness of the associated symptoms. The course provides prescriptive guidance to avoid going off track and keep Scrum healthy.
