Learning & Learning modes:
In person classes: 1 day; Online Learning: four 2.5 hour sessions.
This comprehensive course builds your knowledge and skills in the agile and Scrum approach to projects. You will learn about the role of the Scrum Master, product owner, and business analyst on agile projects, and how to write user stories, which are the most common method of representing requirements. You will learn techniques for building and managing a Product Backlog of user stories, and techniques for estimating and planning with user stories for development in iterations.
You will learn the conditions of success for agile methods, how to scale the agile approach for large teams, and how to adapt your current development methods to become more agile.
The agile method Scrum will be used as a reference method during the course, but many of the techniques described also apply to other agile methods.
You will apply what you learn in a series of hands-on activities using a realistic case study that takes you through the Scrum process, with example solutions.
This course can also be taught on-site for a project team. The team’s project can be used as the basis for the course activities, resulting in the creation of key artifacts, such as the Product Backlog, the ordering of user stories for iterations, and the creation of an iteration plan.
