Scrum today is becoming the leading agile management practice, helping companies to develop software more effectively, helping developers to improve their technical skills, and helping everyone to have more fun on the job. But what is Scrum? How does it work? How does it relate to other practices such as Lean or Extreme Programming? And most importantly, why does it work?
In this one day workshop, Certified Scrum Practitioner Peter Stevens will lead you through a series of discussions, exercises and simulations to experience the how and why of Scrum. Topics:
- Agile Values and Principles
- Intro to Scrum: Roles, Meetings & Artifacts
- Practical Experience with Scrum
- Specifying and Estimating Agile Projects
- Q & A
This one day workshop is particularly geared to
- Developers and Testers who want to apply Extreme Programming or other Agile Practices at work
- Managers and Project Managers who want their software teams to be more effective (and are willing to change themselves to achieve this goal)
- Business Analysts, Business Development Managers and other customer roles who need software that meets their objectives
