Scrum for Practitioners – 2 days
Scrum is an established Agile process that can be used to manage and control complex software and product development using iterative, incremental practices. It has become increasingly well-used as a lightweight Management wrapper for other Agile methods, and is often used alongside eXtreme Programming.
Through discussion, practical exercises and Case Studies, this course explains the rationale for Scrum, what it is and how it works – and the benefits that it can deliver.
This course will benefit anyone who is to be involved in a Scrum Project, in any of the Scrum Roles: ScrumMaster, Product Owner or Team Member.
The course applies to Customer/Users, Project Managers, Analysis, Architects, Developers, Testers, Assurance and Support.
The course is also suitable for those involved in transitioning to Scrum within their own organisation.
