In this course, participants will learn how to stop thrashing and start executing along with everything necessary for getting started with Scrum. There are very few rules to Scrum so it is important to learn its fundamental principles by experiencing them directly from those who have implemented the best Scrums in the software industry.
Upon course completion, students will be Certified Scrum Masters and will be given a one year membership with the Scrum Alliance ($50 USD value).
Participants gain hands-on practice through exercises including:
- How to plan and run Sprint Planning Meetings
- Daily Scrum Meetings
- Sprint Reviews
- Sprint Retrospectives
- And more.
The course format consists of multiple lecture topics, group exercises and group discussion. Ample time will be devoted to analysis of the “real-world” industry experiences of the Scrum Master Course instructor based on case study examples and experiences managing Agile projects and coaching Scrum teams.
- Overview of Agile – Gain a deep understanding of how the Agile Manifesto came about, when and when not to use agile methods and what it means to be an agile team.
- Roles in Scrum – What is the job of the ScrumMaster? How about the Product Owner and the Team? Learn deep insights into these roles and how they work collaboratively together.
- The Impacts of Multitasking – We take a journey through the world of multitasking to really understand the negative impacts it brings to teams.
- The Product Backlog – The Product Backlog is the key to any successful Scrum team. We will explore what comprises a good Product Backlog, techniques for managing it and what happens when it goes unattended.
- Sprinting – In this part of the course, we dive deep into the components of a well assembled Sprint Backlog, what it really means to be done, abnormal terminations and how to decide on Sprint length.
- Release Planning – Release planning is a core component of good project management. This does not change with Scrum. We will explore how to build a release plan and estimate when the work will be delivered.
- Scaling Scrum to the Enterprise – Not all teams are in the same office, let alone the same building. We will look at how companies have successfully scaled Scrum to work in the Enterprise.
