About this training

Within these two days you will get to know Scrum from a different angle. This workshop differs massively from classical classroom lectures as we hardly ever use any slides. We rather make use of the latest techniques in brain research to impart knowledge: Most of the time we work interactively in small groups to learn and to practice the concepts. We will discuss, hear about real life stories and practical examples, and also acquire knowledge by doing exercises in groups and contrasting the results. You will deepen your knowledge about Scrum with the assistance of an experienced Scrum trainer.

Goals

The main objective of this training is to develop a deeper understanding of Scrum and the work/tasks of the Scrum Master as well as to equip you for the everyday life as Scrum Master and the reality of introducing Scrum in your organization. Secondary aim is to prepare you for the certification examination! Through the interactive and workshop-like training style we create enough space to address individual problems and questions. The training also serves as a forum where you can discuss current issues with an experienced trainer.

In this training you learn how to use Scrum successfully. You will become more familiar with the principles and the functionality of the Scrum framework and recognize the true nature of Scrum as a framework for the control of complex processes like software development. You will learn how teams successfully deliver working products by means of transparency, continuous inspection and adaption, self-organization, permanent planning, and little steps. You will understand the particular duties and the responsibilities of the development team and receive the necessary basics for using Scrum in your environment. The course also gives a deeper insight into good practices in the implementation of Scrum. Moreover, it shows the preconditions and changes that are necessary in your business for the successful use of agile approaches and Scrum.

You will leave this training with lots of new ideas and maybe also with a different mindset. Actually this is our goal. Scrum is the beginning of a journey: A journey of learning, reflection, and change. As trainer and coach, I am pleased to be your travelling companion, and our company will be available to answer further questions after the training as well.
