Scrum is today the most popular Agile framework, used by organizations worldwide. Scrum is a simple yet incredibly powerful set of practices that help teams deliver products in short cycles, enable fast feedback, and create a culture of rapid adaptation to change. This class teaches the foundations of Agile and provides a solid understanding of the Scrum framework. Learn the essential concepts and tools of Scrum, including managing product backlogs, planning releases and sprints, tracking and reporting progress, and conducting stand-ups and retrospectives.
Today’s market is increasingly more competitive, as new products come on a daily basis, and entire industries get thrown upside down by innovators. Companies today cannot afford to ideate, research, and develop a new product over a long time. The risk is that by the time the product is ready for launch, someone nimbler, faster, more agile, who is able to identify an opportunity and quickly bring a solution to life, has already taken the top spot in the market.
This class takes participants through a series of interactive exercises where they can learn and apply first-hand the principles of Scrum. At the end of the class, the participants are able to implement Scrum in their work environment, adopt a more innovative mindset, and drive a culture change in their organization.
