Would you like to upgrade and synchronize your organization’s Scrum know-how in just one day?
The Scrum & Kanban Express course is a concentrated dose of knowhow, team exercises, and real-world examples.


The course will teach the participants how to do Scrum and cooperate more productively:
- Agile values and benefits
- eXtreme Programming, Test-Driven Development, Lean, and Kanban basics 
- Scrum’s elements: Roles, artifacts, and events
- Practical team-based, time-boxed exercises for product visioning, product backlog creation, release planning, prioritization/ordering, and estimation
- Agile effects on daily work and cooperation
- Things to consider when using Scrum
- Final Team Exercise

Scrum is an agile process framework for managing complex knowledge work, with an initial emphasis on software development, although it has been used in other fields and is slowly starting to be explored for other complex work, research and advanced technologies. It is designed for teams of ten or fewer members, who break their work into goals that can be completed within timeboxed iterations, called sprints, no longer than one month and most commonly two weeks, then track progress and re-plan in 15-minute time-boxed stand-up meetings, called daily scrums.

Scrum is a lightweight, iterative and incremental framework for managing complex work.The framework challenges assumptions of the traditional, sequential approach to product development, and enables teams to self-organize by encouraging physical co-location or close online collaboration of all team members, as well as daily face-to-face communication among all team members and disciplines involved.

A key principle of Scrum is the dual recognition that customers will change their minds about what they want or need (often called requirements volatility) and that there will be unpredictable challenges—for which a predictive or planned approach is not suited.

Maximum 20 participants.
