Course overview

Scrum Teams succeed best with a solid foundation and this 2 day course prepares students to begin effectively using Scrum immediately. This course is the perfect introduction to Scrum for anyone new to the framework.

It introduces the Scrum process, its roles, events, timeboxes and artifacts. Useful agile best practices like planning releases, managing Product Backlog, and agile estimation are elaborated. Common missteps like flexible timeboxes, unproductive retrospectives, ad-hoc work requests among many others are addressed.
