Introduction to Scrum Training Workshop

As more and more companies find that the classic waterfall approach for project management does not fit their realities, Agile methodologies have emerged as the best solutions in the current dynamic project environment.

In many cases, not all requirements are clear before the project starts and requests for change are inserted often during development. Not less important is the fact that people have come to realize that the ability to estimate development efforts accurately is limited, at best. Scrum is a practical way to implement the Agile approach and is the focus of this course.

The course covers the Scrum framework and includes real life situation simulations and exercises, in which Scrum principles are practiced and important insights are reached.
