EXIN Agile Scrum Foundation is a certification that validates a professional’s blended knowledge in Agile methodologies and Scrum practices. Agile Scrum is about working together to successfully reach the goal. Agile methodologies are popular approaches in software development and are increasingly being used in other areas. Scrum practices include establishing cross-functional and self-managed teams, producing a working deliverable at the end of each iteration or Sprint.
This three-day Agile Scrum course is designed to illustrate this best practice project management approach and give candidates an understanding of Agile as it should be managed within projects. Within project environments there will always be times where there is uncertainty and high volumes of change, and these should be managed effectively. This course discusses the differences between traditional waterfall project methodologies and the Scrum approach, and what are the boundaries of a Scrum project.
