AGILE SCRUM TRAINING

AGILE SCRUM TRAINING

WHAT IS SCRUM?

Scrum is a simple yet powerful framework for agile software development, used by the vast majority of software operations worldwide today.
THE BENEFITS OF USING SCRUM
THE RISKS OF NOT USING SCRUM
  • Progress is easily measured in terms of working software, which is delivered at frequent intervals throughout the life of the project.
  • Project risk is reduced by working in short increments seeking frequent feedback from users and adapting quickly to changing circumstances.
  • Continuous improvement of development process and practices is an intrinsic part of Scrum via regular reflection and tuning.
  • Using traditional development processes, visibility into progress is limited to educated guesses based on effort spent on a lot of very different tasks.
  • Stakeholders and customers can’t provide you with any feedback until after you’ve spent all the time to build the complete end product. If they can’t use it, or don’t like it, you’ve potentially wasted a lot of time and money.

OBJECTIVE

  • Ensure your team has a common understanding of what agile Scrum is. For Scrum to work for your organisation, the whole team needs to be on the same page in understanding the ideas behind Scrum and the mechanics of using it. Adept’s Agile Scrum Training will ensure your software team members are well trained in both theory and practice as they begin their Scrum journey.
  • Established scrum teams can benefit from having an Adept Scrum consultant review established practices and refresh the teams understanding of the framework and Scrum practices.
APPROACH
Adept’s Agile Scrum Training is led by a professionally trained “Scrum Master” who has extensive hands-on Experience in leading Scrum teams and training others for success.

Your Adept Scrum consultant starts by ensuring everyone has a solid understanding of Scrum by conducting a workshop with your team on agile software development and Scrum theory. Developers, testers, managers and other stakeholders learn the core thinking behind Scrum and the nuts and bolts of applying it to real world situations.

Then it’s time to dive in and start running Scrum development “sprints”, with your Adept Scrum consultant leading your team every step of the way. Adept’s training is structured around a hands-on approach whereby we work side-by-side with your team for the initial sprints, facilitating all scrum events, and showing your team how to handle real-life issues as they arise, using Scrum.

The hands-on training covers all key Scrum roles and events including:

  • The roles of the Scum Master, Product Owner, and Team Member
  • Backlog Estimation and Grooming
  • Sprint Planning
  • Daily Scrum
  • Sprint Review
  • Sprint Retrospective
  • The use of sprint management tools
