Professional Scrum with User Experience
Professional Scrum with User ExperienceTM (PSU) is a 2-day hands-on course where students who already have a fundamental understanding of Scrum and some experience using it will learn how to integrate modern UX practices, (UX is more than UI) into the way they are working in Scrum and how to work most effectively within Scrum Teams.
Design work can sometimes feel slow, and not well suited to quick agile cadences and Scrum events, but that isn't the case. Learn UX techniques that fit beautifully into Scrum, and practice these techniques with cross-functional teams in class. The course also includes a free attempt at the globally recognized Professional Scrum with User Experience I certification assessment (PSU I).
All Pyxis courses that lead to Scrum.org certifications include a free attempt at the certification exam that takes place online. You will receive the link to the exam within 24 to 48 hours of your training. Before taking the exam, you can practice by answering to the Scrum.org open assessments.
Scrum Masters, Product Owners and anyone involved in the delivering the product (engineers, product managers, etc) as technology teams work better when they’re collaborating across disciplines and specialties.
