Course Description

Applying Professional Scrum Training ONLINE

Getting results with the Scrum framework

Scrum is the most used Agile framework for complex product development and project management. It is a proven system, in use for over 25 years by companies large and small. Scrum training introduces an iterative and incremental approach to product or project development – aiming to reduce complexity and achieve results faster.

A Scrum team works simultaneously rather than sequentially, with more flexibility. Scrum teams learn to work better together, delivering more value for project stakeholders.

Applying professional scrum training

The Applying professional Scrum (APS) course introduces the Scrum framework and demonstrates its power over traditional approaches to project or product development. It is an interactive course that aims to familiarise participants with its iterative and 'Sprint' based methodology.

The Scrum framework is commonly used in software development but is relevant in any industry or to any complex project.

Course contents and key objectives

The course will teach participants how to apply Professional Scrum and the Scrum framework. It is appropriate for anyone, whether or not they have previous exposure to Scrum. Contents of the two-day course include:

  • Understanding more about Agile development and the value that an Agile mindset can bring.

  • Explain how Scrum differs from traditional work models and the advantages this offers.

  • Explain the details of the Scrum methodology and its practical application.

  • Understand how to apply Scrum to projects and teamwork. This includes the concepts of the Scrum team, Sprints, Sprint reviews, and the Daily Scrum.

Course attendees will work in Scrum teams to simulate a Scrum project. This will involve a series of 'sprints' to solve complex problems and demonstrate the Scrum approach's power. Such Sprints are key to the Scrum framework. They bring in the iterative way of working, giving teams the chance to review success and quickly adapt to meet business requirements.

As part of this practical approach, participants will learn to recognize and understand common missteps and misunderstandings when using Scrum.

Expected Outcomes from Applying professional scrum training

Applying professional scrum training will teach attendees what Scrum is, the value it can deliver, and how to implement it.

The practical and example-based nature of the course will help develop a thorough understanding of the Scrum framework. Experience is the key to implementing it in practice. As such, the course is designed to mimic this and teach the problems to look out for and their solution. Participants will emerge as proficient Scrum practitioners – ready to transform the development of their projects.

Who Should Attend This Course?

Scrum is beneficial for any company, or individual, with complex projects or products. This course provides an introduction and solid grounding in Scrum, enabling participants to work effectively within the Scrum team and to go on to further training if desired. It is ideal for anyone:

  • Working in or joining a team that uses Scrum.
