INTRODUCTION TO AGILE USING SCRUM FRAMEWORK: HALF-DAY WORKSHOP

Introduction to Agile Using Scrum Framework: Half-Day Workshop

2

Saturday, 2 November
11 am – 3 pm

 

ABOUT THIS WORKSHOP

Scrum is used extensively, but not exclusively, in web and software development. Everyone from developers to business execs are expected to know how to work using Scrum, but few are taught it and many struggle along with misinformed ideas. This workshop will cover the main principles and ideas underpinning agile and why using Scrum is the best way to run certain projects. Through hands-on practice and project simulations, you’ll be armed with the knowledge on to use Scrum on a day-to-day basis.

TAKEAWAYS

In this workshop, we’ll:

  • review the Agile Manifesto and principles
  • explore the roles in Scrum
  • go through the planning process (including product backlogs, sprint backlogs, prioritisation, sizing and estimation, and velocity)
  • run an iteration (including the daily Scrum)
  • look at the review and improvement process (including reviews, showcases, retrospectives)

This workshop is aimed at anyone who wants to know more about agile and Scrum. Knowledge on how to use Scrum is particularly important to those involved in web development, software engineering and business development, but it isn’t limited to the tech industry.

PREREQS & PREPARATION

This is a class for beginners and those with some experience of Scrum. No prior knowledge is required.
