This course is also available as self-paced virtual (e-learning) course Agile Planning and Tracking with IBM CLM V6 (ZS600G). This option does not require any travel.

This course teaches you the fundamental skills that are required to manage key scrum artifacts throughout agile projects with IBM Rational Team Concert.

The IBM Rational solution for Collaborative Lifecycle Management (CLM) brings together requirements management, quality management, change and configuration management, project planning, and tracking on a common unified platform. CLM is a set of seamlessly integrated tools that work together as one: Rational Team Concert, Rational Quality Manager, and Rational DOORS Next Generation.

Through a combination of instructor-led lectures and hands-on lab exercises, the course explains how to use Rational Team Concert to support agile Application Lifecycle Management (ALM). You learn the major benefits of Rational Team Concert for agile with scrum.

Hands-on exercises give you experience working directly with IBM Rational Team Concert. You play various scrum roles to focus on activities that are helpful to agile teams. You explore the assets that are created to support the adoption of Rational Team Concert in an agile environment. The exercises focus on skills such as setting up an agile project, creating product backlog, and planning and conducting a sprint.
