Welcome to the most complete course on Agile Scrum online. Learn Agile Scrum fundamentals in a fun and engaging format. And save money on Agile Scrum Certification.
This is primarily a Learn By Doing course.
So we’ll quickly dive into 3 hands on, real world projects that show how successful teams run Agile Scrum.
What you’ll get from this course.
- I’ll show why Agile Scrum works so well for so many software projects.
- You’ll gain an in-depth understanding of Official Agile Scrum, as described in the Scrum .org “Rule Book” of Scrum.
- And then we’ll go beyond, by layering on Unofficial Agile Scrum, to see how successful teams fill the gaps in Scrum.
- We’ll also complete a step-by-step, real world project together, that will show you how to go from a product idea, to a fully functioning physical backlog.
- We’ll then simulate a full Sprint cycle. From Sprint Planning, to Sprint Restrospective, you’ll gain practical tips on how to effectively manage a sprint.
- In the final two practical projects, we’ll migrate to digital backlogs, using Trello, and then to JIRA. We’ll also examine in-depth, how to effectively set-up, administer and run Scrum projects.
Why learn Agile Scrum?
Most software development teams have today migrated to Agile methodologies, and Scrum is by far the most popular Agile framework.
But Agile Scrum is also widely misunderstood. It is so flexible that teams have a variety of options to successfully implement it. And a variety of ways to go wrong.
In a field where so many teams follow counter-productive Scrum practices, copying others wont work.
Don’t Imitate. Understand.
This course will teach you the underlying values and principles of Agile Scrum. And the practical portion will showcase how successful teams run Agile Scrum using approaches that embrace the core Scrum values.
Whether you’re a Scrum Master, Product Owner or other team member, this course will help prepare you for success. You’ll be able to identify and avoid unproductive workplace practices, and confidently use the latest Agile Scrum tools and techniques that are so essential to success.
If you work in the software development space, learning Agile Scrum will accelerate your career and open new doors.
You either end up with Agile Scrum skills, go on to potentially supercharge your career, or you try the course and simply get all your money back if you don’t like it…You literally can’t lose.
