Scrum framework is the most popular Agile approach to developing complex products and services, initially created for software development, it quickly became widely adopted by a range of industries outside software like marketing, hardware, finance, education etc. Scrum is based on highly flexible and adaptive, small autonomous and cross-functional teams who are focused on delivering value to customers and acquiring knowledge through fast feedback loops.
Come to this course to learn about Agile mindset and culture, what it means to be agile, various elements that define the Scrum framework and their interactions, techniques, tools and practices to help you leverage the power of Scrum, become more agile and deliver better results to your customers. You will hear real-life stories, concrete examples and many other useful insights from our trainers with years of experience coaching individuals, teams and organizations.
About the course
The course is delivered in a highly interactive and collaborative format with elements of lecture, group discussions and exercises, lots of interactions, experience and knowledge sharing with plenty of opportunities for your own questions and topics, all evenly balanced throughout the course. As the course is quite intensive and engaging, we will have enough breaks to ensure we stay focused and recharge when necessary.
Our trainers don’t use PowerPoint, instead they use flipcharts (physical or digital) to draw and visually facilitate the lecture and conversations during the course. All the materials created during the course are provided to the participants together with many other handouts and links to resources like articles, books and videos to enable further learning after the course.
For an online course we use Zoom for video conferencing and Miro for online collaboration so you need to have access to a computer, a stable internet connection, a microphone and a camera so we can interact, hear and see each other during the course. Zoom and Miro are free of charge for the participants and, although they can be used through the web interface, we highly recommend that you install desktop versions for better experience and use a headset for clearer audio.
Who should attend?
There are no prerequisites for attending this course.
This course is designed for anyone who is interested in gaining deeper knowledge and understanding about Agile and Scrum, whether you participate in the development process (Scrum Masters, Product Owners, development team members, analysts, designers, programmers, testers, etc.) or you are part of the environment and interact with people who do (stakeholders, project managers, HR, organizational managers and leaders, etc.).
Those who are at the beginning of their agile journey will get a solid foundation to build upon and learn how to start, while those with prior experience will get a chance to reflect on their own use and understanding of Agile and Scrum, gain additional tips and tricks, fill gaps and deepen their knowledge and understanding on how to help improve Scrum adoption in their teams and organizations.
