Foundations of Scrum
For anyone who is new to the world of Scrum – its foundations, its principles, its nuances – there’s a lot to digest. That’s the inspiration behind this course, to cut through some of the high-level, intellectual, book smart aspects of Scrum and, well, tell it like it is.
- Scrum is an agile process framework that has proven to work in project/product development environments that experience rapid change and/or emergent requirements.
- With Scrum, you can build and then apply the intellectual muscle of a team. When Scrum is applied with care, a well-formed team becomes focused on delivering business value.
- Scrum is about humanizing the process so that a team can optimize its pursuit of a goal. It can make your team better and in turn, it can make a better product.
What does this course look like?
This isn’t your typical Live Online course. There’s no meetings to attend, and students can work towards course completion at their own pace (up to 90 days). The average time to complete the course is 4 hours, but students more familiar with Scrum concepts may complete the course faster.
The course consists of 6 Chapters, and includes reading materials and multiple choice and true/false quizzes. It covers fundamental Scrum concepts such as:
- The Scrum Team
- Internal and External Roles
- Sprint Planning
- Sprint Retrospectives
- Product and Sprint Backlogs
- The Buildup Chart
Who Should Enroll?
To get the most out of Scrum Alliance certification training, we recommend students complete this Foundations of Scrum course prior to beginning their CSM or CSPO classes.
Foundations of Scrum was created to get you ready to enter your first Sprint, or, if you’re a little seasoned in the Scrum world, serve as a gentle refresher of your Scrum knowledge base.
The most successful agile adoptions have included training for everyone, right down to Finance and Sales staff. Scrum training is especially appropriate for anyone in the corporate structure dealing with rapidly changing demands. In a traditional organization, these roles include:
