Friday, October 12, 2012 from 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM

This 1-day course teaches the principles and practices that make Scrum effective at managing project.
The course itself uses the principles of Scrum, where the learning outcome is driven by the needs of the participants through a combination of expert instruction and self-directed learning. Opportunities to reflect and adapt the direction of the course are offered at regular intervals.
