The value of working with Agile and Scrum lies in the fact that both the client and the IT delivery team continuously acquire and build up insight. In this training course, the division of responsibilities between client and supplier is brought clearly into focus. We examine the value of short-cycle delivery, direct feedback loops and fixed delivery deadlines in relation to predictability.
This training course gives you a solid introduction to agile working. ‘Agility’ in an environment that is characterized by both complexity and scale is a key focus area of the course. Participants are given the chance to experience the power of Agile and Scrum in particular. In short, what delivering customer value in iterative steps is all about. To instill a new mindset, Agile and Scrum principles are explained and their effect is demonstrated through practical cases. If you are also interested in the Scrum Master and/or Scrum Product Owner training courses, then this course provides you with a solid basis. With the Agile Scrum Foundation, you increase your chance of obtaining the Scrum Master or Product Owner certificate with flying colors.
