The course is a combination of instruction and team based exercises where students experience how the Scrum framework improves product delivery efforts.

The course also includes a free attempt at the globally recognized Professional Scrum Master I certification exam (PSM I).

What you will learn

Over the 2 days, students are introduced to the mechanics of Scrum, gaining insights into overcoming complexity, dealing with team based collaboration and self-organization as essential elements in mastering Scrum. Students work together as a team in a series of Sprints to build a product, thereby facing real-life problems. The mechanics, roles, and principles of Scrum are leveraged during the exercises. From its emphasis on the practical application of Scrum, the course exposes common missteps and misunderstandings so students grow a higher awareness of the associated symptoms.
