Organizations are increasingly moving to more agile ways of developing software. Scrum has emerged as one of the most commonly applied agile implementations. Today’s successful software projects implement at least some aspect of Scrum and organizations are reaping the rewards (better quality, faster time to market, and happier employees and customers) of Scrum done right.
This intensive two day instructor-led course guides participants through every characteristic of Scrum, including roles, planning, artifacts, and most importantly, the motivation behind implementing these elements. All this will be experienced through a balanced combination of lecture, candid discussion, hands-on exercise, and demonstration, as well as a few surprises.
