COURSE DETAILS

This training is aimed at instilling the core beliefs of Agile and Scrum and creating a transparent and collaborative environment, where the team succeeds as a single entity. SCRUM is an Agile project management method, that focuses on short and focused work periods called “SPRINTS”.

During this 2-day course, participants will learn to apply the Scrum framework to build new products. They will learn what it feels like to be on a Scrum team – experiencing many of the challenges they’re likely to face – while being coached by a Certified Scrum Coach, who has been involved with the application of Scrum at many organizations.
