Get ready for an action-packed two days of hands-on Scrum learning from Stacia Viscardi of AgileEvolution!
Scrum is an agile project management framework that allows teams to deliver usable software periodically throughout the life of the project, absorbing change and new requirements as the project proceeds. All projects have emergent requirements and other variables, making predictive planning approaches wasteful to some degree. Shifting market conditions, budget cuts, staff restructuring, or any number of influences will disrupt the best plan while contributing to customer dissatisfaction and staff discouragement. Learn how to use Scrum to bring some control to complex and chaotic situations.
Learn Scrum by DOING Scrum - and have some fun in the process!
Get ready to think on your feet (literally) and engage in powerful debates with your peers about various notions of traditional and agile development. The exercises in this course build one upon the other, so that you get to experience a Scrum project "soup to nuts." As a result of this class, you will be able to:
- Teach others about Scrum
- Help your product owner get the product backlog in shape
- Identify and remove obstacles
- Help your team be its best
- Facilitate release planning events
- Facilitate Sprint meetings: Sprint Planning, Daily Scrum, Sprint Review, Sprint Retrospective
- Use Scrum artifacts and visibility tools for tracking and facilitating decision-making
- Use Scrum to help the organization improve
Beginning with the history of agile development and moving through the disciplines promoted by Scrum, you will gain a comprehensive understanding of the Scrum framework and learn how the three roles in Scrum work together to build great products.
After successfully completing this class (which means two full days of attendance) you will be eligible to take the ScrumAlliance's Certified ScrumMaster exam. Upon passing this exam, you will receive the Certified ScrumMaster mark.
All CSM courses are taught by Certified Scrum Trainers. Taking a CSM course, passing the CSM test, and accepting the license agreement designates you as a Certified ScrumMaster, which indicates that you have been introduced to and understand the basic concepts you need to perform as a ScrumMaster or team member on a Scrum team. This course also satisfies two elements of the CSD track: Scrum Introduction and Elective.
