Course Description


In this 2-day Scaled Professional Scrum (SPS) Workshop, students will simulate a large software development project using the Nexus Framework. The workshop is delivered using an end-to-end case study where students work together to organize and simulate a scaled software development project.  Throughout the workshop, students will be introduced to more than 50 practices that can be used to help reduce complexity and dependencies at scale. 


The workshop will provide students with an understanding of how to launch, structure, staff, and manage a large agile project using Scrum. Throughout the workshop, students will learn the infrastructure, tools and practices needed to successfully scale Scrum to maximize the value of their software development initiative.


By taking a hands-on approach, students are fully engaged in the learning process where they see first hand the challenges in large-scale development initiatives and solutions for getting the project back on track.  They will leave the workshop with techniques to detect irregularities and how to address them appropriately.
