Scrum In 1 Day Workshop

Are you new to agile? Does your team currently practice Scrum, and you want to more effectively apply the framework? This workshop is for anyone who wants to improve their agile practice. Becoming an agile servant leader requires different ways of thinking.

It doesn’t matter if you’re new to agile or if you currently practice agile methods on the job. The Scrum in 1 Day workshop helps you better organize, plan and execute projects with Scrum.

Learning Objectives:
In just 7 hours, class instruction and hands on exercises will help you plan your next project with agility, change to an agile mindset, groom your initial backlog, successfully organize and execute your first sprint, determine when and how to release your application, and while remaining agile, produce status reports in a traditional manner for your management.

Class Outline:
    – How to organize an effective team
    – Rethink your approach to project planning
    – Story writing
    – Story grooming
    – Sprint planning
    – Sprinting and monitoring sprint progress
    – Continuous improvement
    – Velocity
    – Releases
    – Project Status Reporting

Attendees will also receive a copy of the GSD Mindset Scrum Handbook.

Managing agile teams is quite different from managing traditional teams. GSD Mindset understands the nuances of the agile transition and they're experts on guiding PMPs and other project management professionals on their agile journey. Join us and learn how to better manage your next project.
