Agile Project Management with Scrum needs a skilled Scrum Master.In this class we teach you how to implement Scrum, how to be a Scrum Master and how to deal with your customer and organization
It is not possible to apply for this class as the deadline is due.
Agile project management is as radically different from traditional project management, as agile processes are different from traditional methodologies. Rather than plan, instruct and direct, the agile project manager facilitates, coaches and leads. This person is called a Scrum Master. Accepted participants learn how to be a Scrum Master and how to make a development team, a project, or an organization agile and successful. Exercises, case studies, and examples are used to bring home the realization of how to be a Scrum Master instead of a project manager.
Each individual is trained to be able to assume the following responsibilities:
- Remove the barriers between development and the customer so that the customer directly drives development;
- Teach the customer how to maximize ROI and meet their objectives through Scrum;
- Improve the lives of the development team by facilitating creativity and empowerment;
- Improve the productivity of the development team in any possible way; and,
- Improve the engineering practices and tools so each increment of functionality is potentially shippable.
This specific class is taught by: Boris Gloger and Jens Oestergaard
Boris and Jens were trained by Ken Schwaber, one of the co-developers of the Scrum process. They use Scrum on several levels: Projects, Teams, and Organizations. Boris also runs a company - SPRiNT iT, it supports organizations in implementing agile methodologies logic and concepts.
