The module takes deep dive into a couple of popular frameworks to understand the role of business analysis and who performs business analysis works in lean agile software development.

Preparation of product backlog by splitting tasks that teams must do to meet the vision, prepare a release plan to validate the hypothesis, identify MVP, MMF, and setup team to build the initial product.

We go through various approaches for identifying features for the product covering Impact Mapping, Persona Mapping, Design Thinking, and Lean Start-up culture. Participants learn to create a user story, write acceptance criteria, prioritize stories using story mapping, and estimate stories using planning poker and estimation on the wall.

This module covers iteration planning, review acceptance criteria, understand the “definition of done.”, identify work to complete stories, ongoing iteration work, elaborate stories, attend daily stand-up, and writing scenarios/specifications using specification by examples. We also talk about develop low-fidelity and high-fidelity models. Get into acceptance tests / Assess for “done.”, review and maintain product increment backlog, re-estimate existing items as you get more info, customer “show and tell” (ongoing), iteration demo, and iteration retrospective.

What Participants Have to Say About Our Trainer

I attended scrum session on May 4-5, 2019 in Mohali (Punjab) given by Preeth. There were 28 employees from FIS. It was pleasure to meet him. The way of explaining the concepts were simply the best. I am working in scrum since 2012 and had a different version of the importance of roles in my mind so it was never easy to understand the concepts because it was conflicting with what I have been doing/using. Preeth explained the concepts so well that helped me to clear the PSM-1 in 3 days. His communication skills, team forming nature, listening to the audience and answering the questions with his experience and knowledge using live examples impressed not only me but my other colleagues. Before attending this session, I use to have conflict of thinking of the role with my team's scrum master but now I understand the responsibility of the role. You can go through his profile on scrum.org and he is currently the one among 500 in the world who has cleared PSM-3. I would love to attend more sessions when ever I get an opportunity. Thank you Preeth.

Preeth was absolutely great trainer for PSM. Attended his training, and he had shared many practical scenarios on applying the Scrum framework. Very good listener and explained very well to us that we understand the concept fully rather than just purely running through course materials.

It had been a great experience to attend the PSM-I training given by Preeth. With his vast experience as Agile consultant and coach, he could give us a clearing understanding of the concepts. He is so spot on clearing our doubts with proper examples.His body language and voice modulation is so good to keep us active and energetic through out the session. At the end of the training, he was so successful that the entire team got a clear picture in their mind, the dos and don''ts while we practice scrum.

The practical experiences shared by Sumit are a good takeaway. He connects with the class more personally resolving all our doubts which is quite helpful. As I was travelling from Chennai to Bangalore I was scared that the class might cancel or postpone as it had happened previously with other trainer but the best part is he never cancels the class.

I attended the PSM 1 training conducted by Sumeet. The experience was enriching. Throughout the training,he presented the concepts with supporting examples which I could easily relate. Sumeet is also a nice story-teller and uses this skill very effectively in the training delivery. Thanks Sumeet and best wishes!

I attended the PSM training where I met my trainer Sumeet Madan. He is absolutely an amazing trainer. The entire training module was completely discussed along with his full-time engagement. He did explain all the topics with relevant real-time scenarios which actually helps to keep the scrum techniques in mind. Getting the training from someone is usually boredom, but the training class that I attended with Sumeet was completely lively and exuberant. Must say Amazing Trainer ..... Amazing Person......

Recently, I was trained under Sumeet for PSM 1 , he has immense knowledge of Scrum Master roles and all the best practices. The 2 day training was the best training I ever had. It was quite interesting and nobody in his class slept or left the class in between for even a second. The examples he gave with his experience in IT industry were apt with the situations we fell in sometimes. He gave the perfect solution for every problem. Thanks a lot Sumeet. I hope if we can work someday together , it will again be a great learning experience.
