This course covers the core concepts of Scrum teams, the Scrum framework including roles, activities, and artifacts and related knowledge areas. Upon completion of the boot camp, participants will be ready to sit and pass the Certified ScrumMaster® (CSM) credential certification exam by Scrum Alliance (www.scrumalliance.org).
Increasingly intense competition in fast-changing markets is forcing organizations to find better ways to develop new products and bring them to market – faster, better, cheaper. Agile, originally evangelized by the software community, is a response to this dismal track record in their industry. It is a collection of practices based on a set of values and principles ensconced in the Agile Manifesto (www.agilemanifesto.org). Agile represents a paradigm shift from the traditional process-driven to a new value-driven approach to managing complex work.
By far the most popular Agile practice is Scrum, a simple yet powerful framework that can be applied not only to deliver great results, but also to build a highly effective organization.
Scrum is a generic framework. It is applicable not only in software, but other domains as well. This course will help participants understand, in a non-technical way, how to use Scrum to help their organizations create the highest business value in the shortest time. It intends to be thought-provoking to help participants develop the right understanding of Agile and Scrum so that they can get the most benefit out of practicing them. Most of the concepts are delivered through games and other interactive activities that maximize experiential learning.
Project managers, product owners, Scrum Masters, product development team (architects, designers, coders, testers) and management personnel (product managers, engineering managers, test managers, quality managers, directors, vice presidents etc.). Anybody who wants to be successful in applying Scrum to complex development projects large and small.
None required. However, participants will be required to complete simple pre-work before the course.
