Applying Professional Scrum (APS)
Time & Location
About the Event
In this course, students learn to apply Professional Scrum. They experience new, agile ways of working that enable teams to deliver more value, satisfy stakeholders and work better together. Students work together as a team in a series of Sprints to solve complex problems, facing similar challenges that they face outside of class and learning how to use Scrum to address them. These Sprints enable students to see the practical application of Scrum and to understand the value of an Agile mindset. Additionally, these Sprints expose common missteps and misunderstandings often seen while using Scrum, allowing students to develop an awareness of the associated symptoms and how to correct them. Students not only learn Scrum; they learn how to use Scrum well.
This class is taught both publicly and privately. In a public setting, individual students, or multiple colleagues from the same company, will join other students and benefit from diverse experiences.
This is a live-virtual-course (online) led by Julia Wester. There are 3 sessions of 4.5 hours across 3 consecutive days.
