Scrum is used extensively, but not exclusively, in web and software development. Everyone from developers to business execs are now expected to know how to work using Scrum, but few are taught it and many struggle along with misinformed ideas.
This bootcamp will cover the main principles and ideas underpinning agile and why using Scrum is the best way to run certain projects. Through games, hands-on practice and project simulations, you’ll be armed with the knowledge of how to use Scrum on a day-to-day basis. The bootcamp will also give you knowledge that you can put towards obtaining scrum certifications, such as the PSM I offered by Scrum.org.
This is a bootcamp for beginners and those with some experience of Scrum. No prior knowledge is required. This bootcamp is aimed at anyone who wants to know more about agile and Scrum. Knowledge on how to use Scrum is particularly important to those involved in web development, software engineering and business development, but it isn’t limited to the tech industry.
In this two-day bootcamp, we will:
review the Agile Manifesto and principles
explore the roles in Scrum
go through the planning process (including product backlogs, sprint backlogs, prioritisation, sizing and estimation, and velocity)
run sprints (including the daily Scrum)
look at the review and improvement process (including sprint reviews and retrospectives)
Class set up information will be emailed on the day of the class.
You will need access to a laptop or computer with a working webcam and microphone as well as a strong internet connection.
All communication will be sent to the email used to purchase a ticket. If you have signed up on behalf of a friend or colleague, please forward along this information. NOTE: this session will not be recorded, however, slides will be sent within 7 days following the class. Participants are also encouraged to download and save any shared materials during class for later reference.
