In this two-day course, you will apply the Scrum framework to build a new product. You will learn what it feels like to be on a Scrum team—experiencing many of the challenges you’re likely to face—while being coached by someone involved with the application of Scrum at many organizations. This “learning by doing” style of instruction demands your open mind and active participation.
We will apply the experiential activities to discussion of advanced topics such as how to use Scrum in multiple-team organizations, how to measure progress empirically at a macro level, release planning to maximize ROI, and why such a simple framework disrupts organizations to be the best they can be. Participants who complete the course will be eligible to complete their CSM certification with the Scrum Alliances’ multiple choice examination.
Participants are required to read the following books prior to class:
- “Agile Project Management with Scrum”, Ken Schwaber. Microsoft Press. 2004
- “Agile Estimating and Planning, Mike Cohn”. Prentice Hall. 2005
- “Agile Software Development with Scrum”, Ken Schwaber and Mike Beedle. Prentice Hall. 2001
