About this Course

The purpose of this highly immersive, two-day course is to help students to understand the principles of Agile and in particular, Scrum. They will work in teams to produce a piece of work over a series of sprints. In addition to understanding the rules of Scrum, the team will also appreciate how Scrum can be blended with other complementary practices such as Kanban. Students will experience the value of cross-functional teams and the benefits that Agile frameworks such as Scrum provide.
