Benefits for your organisation

Shifting to working to Scrum is by its very nature disruptive. This course will try to smooth the transition from a predictive to empirical approach of working by aligning individuals within the organisation to common values and principles and de-mystifying much of the Agile jargon.

Scrum Theory • How Scrum is aligned with the values and principles of the Manifesto for Agile Software Development. • Scrum and its purpose. • The five core Scrum values. • Empirical process control and the three pillars. • How product planning in an empirical environment differs from traditional fixed planning. • What could be lost if Scrum is only partially implemented. • Benefits of an iterative and incremental approach. The Scrum Roles • How the Scrum Roles interact with each other to deliver the increment within a Sprint. • Cross-functional teams and the benefits of a cross-functional, self-organizing team. Scrum Events • Benefits of timeboxing. • The five events within Scrum, the purpose of each event, and the participants, timing, and maximum recommended timebox. Scrum Artifacts • The three artifacts within Scrum and the purpose of each. • The definition of “Done,” its purpose, and how it evolves over time. • Why the Scrum Team dedicates time for Product • Activities that occur as part of Product Backlog Refinement.
