Participants gain hands-on practice with the release backlog, sprint backlog, the daily Scrum meeting, tracking progress with a burndown charts, Scrum boards, and more, through a series of hands on exercises, ranging from Visioning through to Sprint Planning.
Through a combination of immersive team-based learning, exercises, and real-world case studies, you will learn:
- To plan, initiate and lead a Scrum project
- To establish a shared vision for the entire team
- To generate an Agile release plan utilizing user stories and story point estimation

- Practical suggestions from the school of hard knocks
Scrum Master training provides an applied understanding of the Scrum process and helps participants begin to develop the tools, insights, and skills requried to apply Scrum on their projects and across their organizations.
