Completing this training curriculum will give you the knowledge and experience of using Scrum to rapidly build quality software, and enable you to:
•Establish standards and practices for rapidly building quality software
•Avoid upfront overdesign and practice just-in-time development
•Identify and correct potential impediments to Scrum success
•Use object-oriented techniques to write more extensible software
•Support collaboration, pair programming, and cross-functional teams
•Write software that supports an iterative process without excessive rework
•Support collaborative code ownership and embrace a common aesthetic
•Implement better design alternatives and avoid upfront overdesign
