Scrum Team Training

One area commonly overlooked by organizations that are implementing Scrum is training the development team to understand its role in depth. This Scrum Team Training course teaches participants that Agile project delivery is radically different from traditional waterfall methodologies. Instead of using command and control techniques and handing documents off from one discipline to another, the entire Agile team closely collaborates with the business and stakeholders to build the right functionality. The team is also responsible for self-organizing in order to build the functionality.

Participants learn how Scrum differs from traditional waterfall methodologies and what it means to change their thinking by applying agile values and principles. This training also includes some key principles from Lean that support Agile. Exercises, case studies, and examples are used to bring home the realization of how to be an effective Scrum team member.

Prior experience in software development projects is helpful.
