Get an introduction to Professional Scrum and learn how the Scrum framework and an agile mindset enables teams to deliver more value, satisfy stakeholders and work better together. Experience Professional Scrum while working in Scrum Teams over a series of Sprints: learn Scrum while using Scrum.
Scrum provides a better way of working that highlights the use of experimentation, incremental delivery of customer value, frequent feedback loops and the fostering of strong team dynamics.
Applying Professional Scrum™ (APS) is a hands-on, activity based course in which participants experience how Professional Scrum and the Scrum framework improve their ability to deliver value compared to traditional methods. During the course, you will work in Scrum Teams over a series of Sprints to learn Scrum while using Scrum. The course and the experienced trainer provides an active learning environment for participants to engage in discussion, team-based exercises, and individual reflection.
Participants will experience new, agile ways of working that enable teams to deliver more value, satisfy stakeholders and work better together. You will work together as a team in a series of Sprints to solve complex problems, facing similar challenges that you face outside of class and learning how to use Scrum to address them. These Sprints enable participants to see the practical application of Scrum and to understand the value of an Agile mindset. Additionally, these Sprints expose common missteps and misunderstandings often seen while using Scrum, allowing participants to develop an awareness of the associated symptoms and how to correct them.
APS participants not only learn Scrum; they learn how to use Scrum well.
The course also includes 2 free attempts at the globally recognized Professional Scrum Master I (PSM I) certification exam.
As a seasoned agile delivery and transformation consultant, I, your Professional Scrum Trainer™ Ferzeen Anis, will bring my own experiences and stories to the class, both as a Scrum Master and from coaching Scrum Masters. I will be curious about your circumstances and eager to explore how Scrum may help you. The result will be an engaging, enjoyable and challenging learning experience where participants gain an understanding of Scrum theory and principles, why each element of the Scrum framework is essential, and how best to take their lessons learnt back into their workplaces.
Prepare to be exhausted and inspired!
