A practical introduction to Scrum

"Interaction and active participation were encouraged. Everybody was able to explore how (and if) they could apply Scrum to their own job." - Solution Manager
Scrum Foundation is perfect for
The Scrum Foundation training is perfect for anyone who is completely new to Scrum. It doesn't matter what your current job title is or what industry you are working in. Scrum is finding its way into many different businesses, let yours be the next! If you are already familiar with Scrum, feel free to explore our Scrum Master or Product Owner training courses.
What will you learn during the Scrum Foundation training?
We will start at the very beginning: Agile. What is an Agile mindset and what is Scrum? Through various exercises you will be introduced to all elements of Scrum, such as accountabilities, events and artifacts. Scrum is a way to work Agile and during this training you will experience this hands-on. We will provide you with a variety of exercises to clarify what the responsibilities of the Scrum Master, the Product Owner and the Developers are (and aren't). After completing this interactive training, you will be able to share the Scrum story and identify ways in which your organization could use Scrum. If your organization is already working with Scrum, you will better understand what is expected of you.
