  • Who Should Attend

    Anyone!  Project Managers, Team Leads, Developers, Architects, Business Analysts, Functional Managers, Consultants, Executives!

    If you have been doing Agile or Scrum for years, this course is a valuable reminder of the basics and details, is great for networking and learning from peers, and a great start to a intensive path of certification.

    If you are considering using Scrum, this is a great opportunity to learn about the best circumstances to use Scrum... and when not to use it!

    Who should NOT attend: people who are looking for information to convince themselves or their managers to use Scrum.  This is not a Scrum promotion course.  We will not spend any significant time discussing the benefits of Scrum or trying to convince attendees to use Scrum.  If anything, we talk a lot about how hard it is to do Scrum well!
