During the class, students experience Professional Scrum. They experience new, agile ways of working that enable teams to deliver more value, satisfy stakeholders and work better together. Students work together as a team in a series of Sprints to build a product, facing the same problems they face outside of class and learn how to use Scrum to address them. The events, roles, artifacts and principles of Scrum are leveraged during the exercises. By emphasizing the practical application of Scrum, the course also exposes common missteps and misunderstandings allowing students to develop an awareness of the associated symptoms and how to correct them. Students not only learn Scrum; they learn how to use Scrum well.
This class is taught both publicly and privately. In a public setting individual students or multiple colleagues from the same company, will join other students and benefit from diverse experiences. Organizations can also contract trainers to hold a private class just for their staff. APS is designed to be industry and domain agnostic; our Professional Scrum Trainers will select one of several case studies to best meet the specific learning needs of the class. Students and teams building software products may want to consider our domain-specific course: Applying Professional Scrum for Software Development.
Applying Professional Scrum is excellent training for organizations, teams, and anyone wanting to experience using Scrum.
