Agile Development with Scrum
Overview

This 2-day course assures students understand what adopting Scrum will mean for their organization and themselves, and to make passing Certified Scrum Master training a certainty. The course begins with the concepts and terminology of iterative development: developing and delivering portions of a total product according to a well-defined schedule and partitioning of product features. The business case for iterative development is thoroughly covered. The course then discusses the principles and practices that define an agile approach to software development, including: delivering continual value to the customer, flexible and rapid response to change, short time-boxed iterations, and rapid feedback on project state. The course next covers each of Scrum’s practices and, most importantly, the structure and flow of how a Scrum project is conducted according to agile principles. Extensive exercises allow students to plan a release, estimate user stories and tasks, plan and populate a sprint, and understand how to conduct and end a sprint, with special consideration of software deployment options.

Prerequisites

Experience in software development, project management, or business or systems analysis is desirable, but not mandatory

Audience

Individuals who need to understand Scrum, agile development in general, and the relationship between iterative development and agile development.
