About this training

As a CSM or CSPO you already know how to successfully deliver high quality software along with your Scrum Team. You have learnt the responsibilities and duties of your role and how to use them successfully in your organization. Based on that level of knowledge, this training will deal with the topic of how to use Scrum, when some or many teams work together on building one big thing. This leads to loads of new challenges that have to be addressed. In this training we show you how to use Scrum as a lightweight Framework for scaling, without forgetting about the pillars transparency, inspection and adaption. You will learn how agile and lean principles can guide you and why you shouldn't ask any "Scaling Framework" to find your answers. During the whole training we will share our experiences, impressions and also opinions which we have collected in several large-scale Scrum projects.

Who should attend?

This training is for all those, who plan to use or are already using Scrum in a scaled environment, thus in development projects with several teams, maybe even on different locations. Primarily, this training is meant for active and would-be Scrum Masters and Product Owners, who want to get new ideas and inputs for using Scrum in their organization. But also for people in management position or those who are involved in a Scrum introduction or in a transition from traditional project management to Scrum this training will be a valuable source for new information and ideas to deepen their knowledge.

Goals

The main goal of this training is to get new ideas and inputs about how to successfully use Scrum in large-scale development projects. In this training you will learn how to extend the Scrum Framework as you know it to facilitate the collaboration of many people without beefing up the process to a heavyweight and anti-agile construct. You will understand what really matters when scaling agile methods! This training is also a forum to discuss questions with an experienced trainer.
