 Agile Scrum Boot Camp Course Description

The Agile Scrum Boot Camp will teach participants the key concepts of Scrum and how to implement these concepts into an existing or future software project. The training will cover common obstacles and how to avoid them, for example, teams reverting back to traditional approaches. This course will also address how to successfully run a sprint at all stages of the process, from planning to retrospective. This course will help participants’ organizations create a high performance Scrum team within a short amount of time.

Our course instructors are Certified ScrumMasters and software architects who have spent their time in the trenches.  For this reason,  the course is able to provide opportunities for questions and shared experiences directly from the instructors experience.  Examples include:

  • Dispelling agile myths and demonstrating how planning and testing are integral to a successful agile Scrum implementation
  • Scaling Scrum teams and facilitating “Scrum of Scrums”
  • Handling problems with co-location
  • Interfacing project management and program management
