This two-day course covers the fundamentals of Scrum and Agile methods through to planning and managing your project. The agenda covers the Scrum framework meetings such as the daily scrum, sprint planning and the retrospective. It will show you how to effectively track your project using burndown charts and how to measure velocity for release planning. There are very few rules to Scrum so it is important to learn its fundamental principles by experiencing them. Participants gain hands-on practice with the release backlog, sprint backlog, the daily Scrum meeting, tracking progress with a burndown chart, and more. Participants experience the Scrum process through a “59-minute Scrum” and the "“Game” which simulate Scrum projects through non-technical group exercises.
Following successful completion of the course, each participant will be designated Certified ScrumMaster. This certification includes a one-year membership in the Scrum Alliance, where additional ScrumMaster-only material and information are available.
The class runs from approximately 9-5pm on both days.
Jeff started the first Scrum at Easel Corporation in 1993 and worked with Scrum Co-Creator Ken Schwaber, to formalize the Scrum development process at OOPSLA’95. In the same year, Sutherland provided Kent Beck all background information on the creation of Scrum. XP engineering practices then evolved along with SCRUM and the two leading Agile development processes work well together. Scrum and XP are the most widely used Agile processes worldwide and their creators are authors of the Agile Manifesto.
Jeff is CTO and Worldwide Scrum Consulting Practice Manager for PatientKeeper. His company started Scrum seven years ago as a startup and involves the whole company in the Scrum process including senior management.
