The Program Details
One of the most popular Agile project management and development methods, Scrum is
starting to be adopted at major corporations and on very large projects. After an
introduction to the basics of Scrum like: project planning and estimation, the Scrum
Master, team, product owner and burn down, and of course the daily Scrum, Stephen
(a certified Scrum Master) shows many real world applications of the methodology drawn
from his own experience as a Scrum Master. Negotiating with the business, estimation
and team dynamics are all discussed as well as how to use Scrum in small organizations,
large enterprise environments and consulting environments. Stephen will also discuss
using Scrum with virtual teams and an off-shoring environment. We’ll then take a look
at the tools we will use for Agile development, including planning poker, unit testing,
and much more. There will be plenty of time for Question and Answer. This seminar
is a jump start for a certified scrum master exam.
