Introduction to Agile and Scrum is a 1 day class on Agile and Scrum fundamentals. Participants learn the origins and science behind Agile and Scrum, and the values, principles, and practices of Agile. The training also covers the elements, flow and project planning of an Agile project. More and more organizations are seeing increased productivity, quality and team morale implementing Agile and Scrum specific methodologies for their projects. Project managers and teams attending this course will gain an excellent understanding of Agile and Scrum, and their processes and fundamental tools.

Below is the Scrum based Agile project cadence. You will leave the workshop with the knowledge required to plan and execute a team-based Agile project.

The Introduction to Agile and Scrum workshop begins by laying a foundation in best practice Scrum based Agile methodology using lecture, discussions, questions and team exercises. This foundation provides the working knowledge and terminology necessary to successfully plan and execute a team-based Agile project. Students will understand the history of agile, the importance of “being” as well as “doing” agile, key aspects of value-driven development, adaptive planning techniques, and the value of continuous feedback, learning, and adaptation for products, processes, and teams. Students will also gain the vocabulary to discuss the benefits of agile and how to avoid common Agile pitfalls.
