Course overview

This online course provides a basic introduction to Scrum and allows participants to start using Scrum after only two days while learning about the Scrum process framework, roles, events and artifacts.

Useful agile practices, such as relative estimation, product backlog refinement with stories from hardware development, story mapping and release planning, are taught. Common mistakes, like flexible timeboxes, unproductive retrospectives, ad-hoc tasks and many more, will be discussed.  Special attention will be paid to specific features of interdisciplinary system development.

Instead of long theory, participants will find themselves in the first sprint after less than an hour. In combination with short theory blocks Scrum will not only be taught but also understood and internalized.

The course lays the foundation for further training such as the certification courses Professional Scrum Master or Professional Scrum Product Owner.


After the course, participants will have a profound knowledge of Scrum in the development of complex technical systems in interdisciplinary areas. They can actively fulfill their role in an agile project and use Scrum in the company.

Target Group

Upon completion of this course, participants will have a sound knowledge of Scrum in connection with interdisciplinary system development. They will be able to actively play their role in Scrum projects and to improve the application of Scrum in the company.
