Agile refers to a group of methodologies based on iterative development, where requirements and solutions evolve through collaboration between self-organizing cross-functional teams. Scrum is a subset of Agile. It is a process framework for agile development and the most widely-used one. A Scrum process is distinguished from other agile processes by specific concepts and practices, divided into the three categories of Roles, Artifacts, and Time Boxes. The three roles defined in Scrum are the ScrumMaster, the Product Owner, and the Team. The people who fulfill these roles work together closely, on a daily basis, to ensure the smooth flow of information and the quick resolution of issues.
Our Scrum Master training course provides insight into the working method, rules, and roles of Scrum, and the mindset needed to work with Scrum successfully. You will be introduced to servant leadership to enhance your effectiveness as a Scrum Master. This leadership goes together with behavioral change, working with people and teams, coaching and facilitating techniques.
What will you learn?
The training course is practical and focuses on the successful application of Scrum in the real world. Concepts dealt with include:
Scrum framework: understanding the rules and roles of Scrum according to the Scrum Guide.
Cross-functional, self-organizing teams: scrum teams differ from traditional development teams. The paradigm and character of cross-functional and self-organizing teams promote flexibility, creativity, and productivity. Teams choose how they can best produce their work and have all the expertise required to be able to do that, without depending on others outside the team.
Coaching & facilitating: the mindset and behavior of Scrum Masters vary from those of project managers or team leaders in traditional environments. Scrum Masters are facilitators for the teams.
