Mastering Agile and Scrum Training

Learn how to execute Agile and Scrum processes within real world project environments.

Course Summary

This course will give you a broad understanding of Agile methods and goes beyond the fundamentals of Scrum and focuses on practical knowledge. Unlike the Certified Scrum Master course, this course teaches students how to manage and execute Scrum processes within real-world project environments. The course is designed for all personnel who will be involved in the Scrum process, including Project Managers, Product Owners, Program Managers, PMO Directors, Software developers, executives and QA. In this course, we will dive deeper into the complex processes of Agile projects including Requirements Management and Planning, Road mapping, Hybrid Agile Projects, Product Vision and more. We will walk you through a hands-on simulation of a complete scrum project, from start to finish. Beyond knowing the fundamentals and terminology of the scrum process, teams must master scrum to be able to launch a scrum practice in their organization.
