The "Scrum Projects Management" course allows participants to quickly dive into the universe of Scrum. This two-day course is delivered with many practical workshops that simulate the reality of an Agile project using Scrum. Guided by an expert that actively coaches development teams who are using Scrum every day, participants will experience the different meetings and will also learn to produce the various artefacts used by the Scrum framework.
Experiment the execution of a Scrum project—During a practical exercise, each participant plays the role of a member of the Scrum team.
Discuss with an Agile expert—During the course, the trainer asks questions to verify that participants understand the concepts presented. The trainer also shares their work experience and answers questions about the participants’ specific contexts.
