Even projects that have solid, well-defined project plans encounter some degree of change and waste. 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. Moreover, projects that begin with changing or unclear requirements make it difficult to even establish project expectations. Scrum is the agile development process that allows teams to deliver usable software periodically throughout the life of the project, absorbing change and new requirements as the project proceeds.
Beginning with the history of agile development and moving through the disciplines promoted by Scrum, you will gain a comprehensive understanding of the Scrum methodology while specifically reviewing the behaviors expected of a ScrumMaster.
After successfully completing this class participants will be registered with the Scrum Alliance as Certified Scrum Masters, and can claim 16 PDU's with the PMI.
Attendees will receive a copy of the presentation materials, a copy of Ken Schwaber's book "Agile Project Management With Scrum," and web access to all class materials for one year.
