Course Description:

Scrum is widely used in technology projects, especially those that have a software development aspect. This program gives tech organizations an opportunity to learn the mechanics of Scrum concepts and how to apply them in a practical setting.

Scrum team members will be able to learn how to optimize their collaborative work and product delivery methods in this hand-on, virtual workshop. This program will take 24 hours to complete, in which participants will have worked through all aspects of a Scrum project, from vision to iterative delivery. Each  session will include a discussion segment to gain a more in depth understanding of Scrum and the participants will be placed in small groups for exercises that will give them hands-on experience with Scrum.

This course will teach participants how to use Scrum for a project and product delivery, which will improve an organization's customer satisfaction, product delivery and team morale. With Scrum, teams can respond quickly to changes without hassles in

traditional project change management
