The 2-day Professional Scrum Foundations course provides the
foundational knowledge needed to work with Scrum in a highly practical
way. The course is a combination of instruction and team-based exercises
where students experience how the Scrum framework improves product development
efforts. Over the 2 days, students are
introduced to the mechanics of Scrum, gaining insights into overcoming complexity,
dealing with team-based collaboration and self-organization as essential
elements in mastering Scrum.
Students work together as a team in a series of Sprints to
build a software application, thereby facing real-life problems. The mechanics,
roles, and principles of Scrum are leveraged during the exercises. From its
emphasis on the practical application of Scrum, the course exposes common
missteps and misunderstandings so students grow a higher awareness of the
associated symptoms, and provides prescriptive guidance to avoid going off
track and keep Scrum healthy.

organizational level. They live Scrum daily.
