The Professional Scrum Foundations (PSF) course is a 2-day course that teaches Scrum by experiencing what its like to build software using the Scrum framework. Working in a series of Sprints, students break into Scrum Teams fulfilling all of the roles on a team to build a software application, simulating real-life problems. The mechanics, roles, principles and (empirical) process of Scrum are demonstrated. Common missteps and misunderstandings are discussed so students grow a higher awareness of their symptoms.
Professional Scrum Foundations is excellent training for teams and anyone wanting to experience the Scrum way of working. The course also provides the foundation of knowledge needed for role-focused training for Product Owners, Scrum Masters and Developers.
Provide practical insights into the mechanics and practices of Scrum so that students can use it to build complex products.
Students will build releasable software in teams with a mix of discussion and exercises to understand empirical decision making.
The course also includes a free attempt at the globally recognized Professional Scrum Master I certification exam (PSM I).
Scrum.org selects only the most qualified instructors to deliver this course. Scrum.org maintains the defined curriculum and materials to assure consistency and quality for delegates worldwide.

The course is very well suited to organisations investigating Scrum or software development teams looking to implement Scrum. We would very much recommend that delegates read and digest the Scrum Guide prior to course attendance.
