This three day interactive workshop provides everything the Scrum team will need to get started. The course enables participants to understand their role within the Scrum team structure and equip them with the knowledge, skills, and tools to successfully implement Scrum.
One approach to Scrum training is to train the Scrum Master who will then transfer their knowledge to other members of the team. The danger of this tactic is that the Scrum Master often lacks expertise and experience, the team is inadequately trained and the agile adoption initiative carries a high risk of failure.
This introductory course focuses on team-based learning to ensure all participants gain practical experience working with the important Scrum ceremonies and artifacts. These include the product backlog, release planning, iteration planning, Scrum meetings, reviews, and retrospectives.
