Agile Scrum as a Delivery Method

Agile Training Workshops

Agile Scrum, a project delivery framework developed and formalised by Ken Schwaber and Jeff Sutherland in the 1990's enables people to work together to deliver any innovative complex scope of work.  The Scrum framework consists of Scrum Teams and their associated roles, ceremonies, artifacts and rules. Each component within the framework serves a specific purpose and is essential to Scrum’s success as a delivery method.

 

When companies begin their agile journey, one of their first challenges is understanding the rules and roles necessary to support the initiative.  A strong corporate culture not accustomed to the Agile mindset can be a difficult environment in which to implement Agile methods.  In some cases, the company’s culture and practices may reward non-Agile milestones while inadvertently discouraging Agile success. In other words, If the correct framework for the new delivery concept is not in place, Agile adoption can be extremely difficult. When a company maintains a non-Agile framework and tries to shoe-horn in Agile practices, they often end up accomplishing less at greater cost while also achieving lower quality results which, ultimately leads them to somehow conclude that, it is Agile that does not work.

 

Whether you are a Business Manager contemplating Agile Scrum as a delivery method, or you are new to Agile and your intention is to pursue a career either as an Agile Scrum Master or Agile Product Owner, you will be provided with enough knowledge to enable you to make an informed decision.

This one day workshop provides an introduction to Agile Scrum as a delivery method within a relaxed and informal setting and without the impending pressure of having to pass a formal certification exam.

 

Features

  • One day workshop  

  • No certification examination  

  • Informal workshop learning environment

How the workshop works

The Agile Scrum as a Delivery Method Workshop is for delegates with Agile experience

No! This workshop assumes you are completely new to Agile. 

 

If you are a Business Manager who wants to understand the benefits of transitioning your organisation to an Agile delivery method, then this workshop aims to provide you with enough information to enable you to make an informed decision.

 

If you are new to Agile but your intention is to pursue a career either as an Agile Scrum Master or Product Owner, you will hopefully be provided with enough knowledge to enable you to determine which role best suits your Agile ambitions.

 

Although this workshop covers many of the aspects of Agile delivery; due to time constraints, training exercises are not included. This workshop should therefore be considered an introduction to Agile delivery and a pre-requisite to the Programme Delivery as an Agile Scrum Master and Business Analysis as an Agile Product Owner workshops only.

Delegates have to sit a certification examination.

No! Delegates are provided access to the optional online Agile knowledge quiz which accompanies the Agile Scrum as a Delivery Method.
 

The intention is to provide delegates with an idea of how much they know or do not know about Agile delivery prior to and after the workshop.
