Scrum is an Agile framework. Sometimes people lose purpose of Agile and tend to focus on rigid rules and meetings when doing Agile Scrum. The core purpose of Agile Scrum is to do a small portion of work, demo it, get feedback, and adapt based on the feedback at the core of the inspect and adapt loop.

Our courses will provide practical knowledge – “How To” and real project examples for you so you can help your organization have a smoother agile transformation by addressing the true Agile Scrum purpose.

The focus of the training is to provide insight into Lean, Agile, and Scrum to show how Scrum framework contributes to Agile practices. You will also learn Agile techniques, such as how to prioritize requirements, writing simple effective user stories, how to elicit and document requirements with user stories and how to guide your stakeholders throughout the project.
