Elearning Agile Scrum

Introduction to Flip Style Agile Scrum Training

To complement our already successful Agile Scrum training portfolio, WFS is now offering Agile Scrum Flip Style training.  Flipped training draws on such concepts as active learning, student engagement and hybrid course design.  Flipped Style training reorganizes class time putting conceptual components online to be completed before attending an on-site workshop facilitated by an Agile Coach.   The one day workshop is a simulated Agile Project which allows students to ask questions, clarify content and gain the practical learning needed to begin working on their own project.
