Applying Professional Scrum is the workshop for anyone who wanted to learn more about Scrum as described in Scrum Guide through Hands-on exercises. Applying Professional Scrum (APS) provides the foundational knowledge needed to work with Scrum efficiently. The course is a combination of teaching and team-based exercises. Students work in Scrum Teams over a series of Sprints to learn Scrum while doing Scrum. They experience first-hand how the Scrum framework improves their ability to deliver business value compared to traditional methods. The course also includes a free attempt at the globally recognized Professional Scrum Master I certification exam (PSM I).
Students experience new, agile ways of working that enable teams to deliver more value, satisfy stakeholders, and work better together. Students work together as a team in a series of Sprints to build a product, face similar problems they face outside of class, and learn how to use Scrum to address them. The events, roles, artifacts, and principles of Scrum get leveraged during the exercises.
The course also provides the foundational Scrum knowledge needed for those wishing to continue their education with role-focused (Scrum Master, Product Owner, Developer, Leader) training classes. Whether you are getting started on your first Scrum effort or refreshing your knowledge, this course gives students the ability and direction to start using Scrum immediately after the class.
