May 2021 - 3-Day Scrum Project Management: Running Projects Leaner and Faster

Scrum Project Management: Running Projects Leaner and Faster

In the early 1990s, Ken Schwaber and Jeff Sutherland created Scrum as a simplified project management approach. The goal of Scrum is to produce software or a product every 30 days for the customer. While Scrum is a straightforward process, it is not easy to put into place and maintain. It is also not simple to shift from traditional project management to Scrum methodologies and cultures. During this three-day course, participants will examine the beginning framework of Scrum, the roles and responsibilities of team members, and each aspect of running projects using Scrum methodologies. Students will learn how to shift the roles from a traditional project manager to ScrumMaster. The course will include situations to challenge participants with what Scrum is and is not.
