An overview of Scrum
A brief introduction to Scrum and its principles so all attendees start from the same point.
Know what’s expected in a sprint, what the team and product owner commit to, how to analyze the optimum length of a sprint and understand what “done” looks like.
Discover how to progressively refine the product backlog to ensure that it is manageable and can be turned into effective user stories for each sprint.
Understanding Scrum roles
As Scrum Master, you have to work effectively with the product owner and your technical team. Mike gives you training to handle the real-life subtle dynamics that can affect team commitment, morale and efficiency. You’ll see where conflict may arise within the different roles and how to minimize this so each member can focus on delivering the best value at the end of each sprint.
One of the most important abilities of a valued Scrum Master is being able to plan and estimate when work will be shipped, what features will be included and the cost of the project. With this training, you get specific tools to help you deliver accurate estimates while accounting for real-life complexities.
How do you get the best out of a meeting if the product owner isn’t available? What should you do if he or she turns up and tries to bring too much to the sprint?
This training gives you specific strategies and tactics to you to make sure that sprint planning is efficient, morale remains high and the team has a good idea of what they’re going to do during the sprint.
As Scrum Master, it’s your responsibility to facilitate the daily scrum, the sprint review and the sprint retrospective. You’ll know what should be covered in each meeting, the true purpose of each meeting, the outputs from each, how long they should take, and who should be involved.
Scaling and Distributed Teams
The beauty and popularity of Scrum lies in its ability to organize complex projects on any scale, from small teams working together in the same building, to teams working around the world and across different time zones. The course includes guidelines to get you started at multi-team scrum and for choosing among various scaling frameworks.
