Introduction to Agile & Scrum is a workshop where we introduce students to the fundamentals of Agile Software Delivery with Scrum. Students will understand the what, why and how behind Agile & Scrum and learn how to empirically manage value in their companies. The workshop also helps students establish a strong foundation for more advanced workshops in the future.
Professional Scrum Foundations (PSF) is a 2-day workshop that throws students into a pressure-cooker of high-stress software delivery and challenges them to apply Scrum to overcome real-world problems. Students form Scrum teams, apply principles, values and rules of Scrum to deliver working software every sprint, learning hard lessons that prepare them to succeed in the real-world.
Professional Scrum Developer (PSD) is a 3-day workshop course that teaches students how to apply Scrum to work in Sprints and frequently deliver high-quality increments of valuable software. Students apply modern engineering practices, face real-world challenges and apply the Scrum framework to cope with them.
Professional Scrum Master (PSM) is a 2-day workshop where students master the principles, values, and rulesof Scrum. Students apply Scrum to tackle real-world challenges and get immediate feedback that helps shift their mind-set and prepares them for success in the real-world.
Professional Scrum Product Owner (PSPO) is a 2-day workshop that teaches students how to maximize the value of software products and systems. Effective Product Ownership is much more than writing User Stories. In this workshop, students walk in the shoes of Product Owners and take a Product all the way from Vision and Strategy to a Product Backlog and Release Forecast. Students will learn the accountability, theory, tactics and more importantly – the mind-set of Professional Scrum Product Ownership.
Scaled Professional Scrum™ (SPS) is a 2-day course that teaches students how apply the Nexus framework to tackle the complexity of Scaling Business Value. Students are jump into a case study and are challenged to apply the Nexus framework and 50+ complementary practices to tackle real-world scaling problems. By the end of the course, students learn practical techniques for ramping up teams, backlog management, scaled planning, scaled refinement, scaled reviews and scaled retrospectives.
Many companies switch their software delivery framework to Agile while still retaining waterfall definitions of value like “on-scope, on-time, on-budget”. Or worse, they misuse Agile Metrics like velocity and burn-down charts to micro-manage teams and create un-intended destruction of value. In this workshop, we explore how to quantify business value at an Executive level in a way that is aligned with Agile Principles, Values and Practices.
