Duration: 2 days
The course is primarily intended for those responsible for the successful use or rollout of Scrum in a project or entreprise.
- Scrum Masters
- Project Managers
- People involved in the software development process
The purpose of the PSM course is to give participants a solid grounding in Scrum and its core principles, from which they can make opportunistic decisions about how to use it best. Participants learn why certain decisions are better than others as well as why some support Agility while others ultimately lead back to a waterfall model. They will also learn how to use Scrum productivity metrics to monitor the results of their decisions and how to optimize those results.
Developers, architects, analysts, project managers, and product managers will learn tips that will help them implement this Agile framework. For people who wish to obtain the Scrum Master certification, this course is a must.
