Leading Remote Scrum Teams (LRST) — Overview
Remote team environments are complex, and team-complexity is often amplified by complex work. Scrum is a lightweight process framework suitable for leading remote teams. Designed to improve output through emphasizing team dynamics, well-formed Scrum teams are renowned for adapting-to and capitalizing on their environments, enabling a greater focus on workflow.
3Back’s Leading Remote Scrum Teams training provides the tools and information necessary to help your company’s teams implement scrum-based tactics. In this course, students will use a robust simulation that provides an intensive hands-on experience combined with a solid conceptual foundation. This combination results in graduates of Remote Scrum Teams who are capable of making well-informed decisions based on evidence.
Hands-on applied course.
Why Scrum Training?
Time = Money
Transforming your team or organization to a new methodology is a big undertaking. Organized training will provide the kickstart you need and save valuable time otherwise wasted on costly trial and error.
Increase employee retention by creating a work environment where teams feel valued and empowered.
Compete with the best
Bring your products to market faster by learning to adapt to the market’s changing desires.
Delight your clients
Learn valuable skills to help you determine what your customers really want out of their software as well as techniques for delivering it within budget.
Better information retention
Studies show that when learners “do and say,” they experience an increase of knowledge retention up to 80% over reading alone.
Build skill, not just knowledge
Books and blogs are good knowledge resources. Skill, however, is acquired by doing. There is simply no replacement for the skill building that occurs with hands-on activities and real-life simulations.
