Scrum is an agile framework that enhances software delivery, through encouraging short, high-effort, collaborative, and extremely productive team “sprints”, instead of working on a longitudinal, motivation-deflating, and resource-consuming project. A Scrum Team consists of a Scrum Master, a Product Owner, and the Scrum Development Team.
Scrum is a process-based project management framework that encourages complex software products to be completed through a collection of incremental “sprints”, rather than working on a longitudinal project. Scrum is suited to complex, adaptive, unpredictable, and quality-dependent projects, due to optimising a variety of resources, and minimising man-power expenditure.
The Scrum framework is based upon empiricism - encouraging the acquisition of knowledge through learning from previous decision making experiences, and translating such awareness into future practice to enhance productivity. Hence, Scrum training courses are intended for individuals that wish to ameliorate their project management proficiency, and demonstrate that they are capable of bringing about quality products that are within budget and on time - epitomised by gaining professional certifications in Scrum.
Within a Scrum project, mini sprints are completed to achieve the completion of timely products, sprints are usually 2 weeks long, and very rarely exceed a month. Each sprint has a goal - a clear statement of intent - that determines the plan of action and ensures the punctual completion of the sprint backlog - guaranteeing that the project remains focused and in line with a business’s objectives.
Given the simplicity of the framework upon which Scrum is grounded, candidates can quickly accumulate and acquire the relevant knowledge and become proficient Scrum Development Team members, Product Owners, and Scrum Masters in a short space of time without instigating a complex methodology.
Our Scrum courses educate candidates on how to utilise resources efficiently whilst maintaining motivation of an entire Scrum Team - if one aspect of the Scrum process isn’t functioning optimally, then it will slow down the product’s delivery. The Scrum framework encourages feedback and appraisals prior to every sprint and at the end of each day, meaning that dysfunction is identified early on, and that there is a clear emphasis on progressing towards, and meeting the demands of, the final product.
Our Scrum courses have a very large proactive and practical element to them, encouraging candidates to learn how to implement the framework, how to efficiently operate within a Scrum Team, and how to engage with stakeholders and Product Owners/Scrum Masters to fundamentally improve a product’s value.
In addition, candidates will learn how to explain the principles of Scrum to individuals not involved in the team, to ensure that Scrum practices are fully transparent and understood across a business. The framework is reliant on self-organisation, ownership, and cross-departmental collaborations, hence Scrum certifications indicate that a candidate is able to constructively contribute to a software delivery project, and has a comprehensive appreciation for the constituents of a successful project, from engaging with stakeholders, to determining the end of a project.
