      Description

      Getting results with the Scrum framework

      Scrum is the most used Agile framework for complex product development. 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 shows its power over traditional approaches to project or product development. It is an interactive course that aims to familiarize participants with its iterative and 'Sprint' based methodology.

      Training applies to any industry or domain. Scrum 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.

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.
