The application of Agile principles and practices on software development projects enables a project team to quickly develop working software that meets business needs. In Scrum, teams work in 2-4 week Sprints to produce production-quality software driven by business priorities using an empirical, adaptive approach. This course provides an in-depth understanding of how Agile and Scrum teams deliver business value.
You will learn to apply the basic practices of any Agile approach, with a focus on Scrum. You will apply what you learn in a series of exercises that take you through project start-up, project/release planning, Sprint planning, and Sprint execution. Participants will build and manage a Product Backlog, a Sprint Backlog and a Release Plan.
As a boot camp, this course uses a combination of lecture, class discussion, and hands-on exercises with emphasis on group activities to reinforce the concepts and principles. The course can be modified to use real-life examples and situations from the students' own experiences. It would also benefit a new Agile project team that attends as a group, providing a common foundation of knowledge and experience for everyone on the team.
This course is intended for anyone who will actively participate in a project using this approach. People on the edges of the project (secondary customers, management staff, and participants in related processes) will also benefit. Project teams are encouraged to attend as a group.
A basic understanding of Scrum
If you need training for 3 or more people, you should ask us about onsite training. Putting aside the obvious location benefit, content can be customised to better meet your business objectives and more can be covered than in a public classroom. It's a cost effective option.
