ABOUT THE COURSE
Learn the Scrum framework for an agile project and the essentials of working as a ScrumMaster or Scrum team member. Through a fun mix of theoretical explanation, problem exploration and practical exercises, this 2–day course will equip attendees for their first Scrum project or enable them to reflect on their projects and become more agile.
WHAT YOU WILL LEARN
Attendees will learn, through doing and questioning, about Scrum concepts and artefacts such as the Product Backlog, release planning, Sprint planning, the Daily Scrum and burndown charts. They will also learn that, despite being a simple framework, it is deceptively simple in that Scrum requires discipline and hard work to be effective.
Each aspect of the Scrum framework is explained in terms of its principles, its relation to the rest of the framework and is supplemented with stories of real–life examples while also giving the attendees the opportunity to explore the concepts in fun, practical case–studies.
Questions and conversations are encouraged throughout and there is also a dedicated Q&A session to explore the concerns and practical queries. As Certified Scrum Trainers we are approved by the Scrum Alliance and have had experience of Scrum implementations small, medium and large, coming up against and resolving many barriers to Scrum along the way.
Attendees to this class will learn:
- What Scrum is and where it comes from
- When Scrum is applicable and when it is not
- How to plan a Scrum project
- How to execute a Scrum project
- How to track progress in a Scrum project
- How to review a Scrum project
- What the roles and responsibilities are in a Scrum team
Upon successful completion of this course and exam attendees will be registered as Certified ScrumMasters with the Scrum Alliance. This registration will last for two years.
WHO SHOULD ATTEND
Anyone interested in starting a Scrum project or wishing to improve their current Scrum implementation. Naturally intended for those taking on the ScrumMaster role, it is equally useful for any Scrum team member.
