Applying Professional Scrum™ is a hands-on, activity-based course where students experience how professional Scrum and the Scrum framework improve their ability to deliver value compared to traditional methods. Scrum provides a better way of working that highlights experimentation, incremental delivery of customer value, frequent feedback loops and the fostering of strong team dynamics.
In this 8 hour class students learn to apply professional Scrum. They experience new, Agile ways of working that enable teams to deliver more value, satisfy stakeholders and work better together. Students work together as a team in a series of Sprints to solve complex problems, facing similar challenges that they face outside of class and learning how to use Scrum to address them. These Sprints enable students to see the practical application of Scrum and to understand the value of an Agile mindset. Additionally, these Sprints expose common missteps and misunderstandings often seen while using Scrum, allowing students to understand the associated symptoms and how to correct them. Students not only learn Scrum; they learn how to use Scrum well.
There are no set prerequisites to attend the course.
