Course Overview
Summary: 

Many organizations are moving to Agile methods, Scrum in particular, for several reasons. These include the reality of changing customer requirements, increased competitive pressure and the need to both deliver value quickly to customers and respond to competitive pressures. Scrum is an excellent framework for producing incrementally. Net Objectives believes it is critical to continually prioritize and manage producing increments based on highest business value.

Implementing Scrum for Your Team (ISFYT) provides a solid understanding of the Lean principles, key tenets, and Scrum practices for successfully implementing Scrum. It is appropriate for teams just beginning their implementation of Scrum as well for teams that are just starting to work together. Participants leave with hands on knowledge and actionable steps to achieve iterative software development and delivery. Students will learn the basics of Scrum and how to implement it, with or without iterations, in their environment.

All Net Objectives consultants have hands on practical experience with applying Lean thinking to the delivery of software technology solutions. Our approach is to show how Lean applies to an incremental realization of software features and systems and how to apply practices that improve the team’s ability to deliver.

Course Objectives: 

This course prepares teams to begin practicing Scrum. It covers all aspects of Scrum needed by team members to perform it. Additionally, Lean thinking and business practices for defining and prioritizing business value increments are included, along with management practices for achieving a cadence of consistent deliver y of business value increments (flow). Unlike Scrum Master training which focuses on the Scrum Master role, this course focuses on how the team can adopt Scrum. After this training, teams will be able to start using Scrum effectively.

We highly recommend consulting and coaching services to be included with this training offering, or consider the The Kanban/Scrum Team Startup Package. This is especially true if your teams have little to no prior iterative development experience.

Scrum is easy to adopt, but difficult to implement and realize effective higher business value. Teams and organizations starting their transition to Scrum will uncover many issues and challenges. Net Objectives consultants and coaches have extensive experience in successful Scrum adoptions and can provide the early guidance to teams and organizations for quicker more effective implementation.
