Applying Professional Scrum (APS)

A two-day course that provides the foundational knowledge needed to work with Scrum in a highly practical way.

“The trainer did excellently to encourage discussion in the group whilst progressing through the day's agenda at a good pace.”

Course Description

Over the two days, students are introduced to the mechanics of Scrum, gaining insights into overcoming complexity, dealing with team based collaboration and self-organisation as essential elements in mastering Scrum.

APS is a combination of instruction and team-based exercises where students experience how the Scrum framework improves product development efforts.

Students work together as a team in a series of Sprints to build a software application, thereby facing real-life problems. The mechanics, roles, and principles of Scrum are leveraged during the exercises.

From its emphasis on the practical application of Scrum, the course exposes common missteps and misunderstandings so students grow a higher awareness of the associated symptoms. The course provides prescriptive guidance to avoid going off track and keep Scrum healthy.

APS provides the foundation knowledge needed for role-focused training for Product Owners, Scrum Masters, Developers, and Leaders within the organisation.

Who Should Attend?

This course is the perfect introduction, reboot or refresher to Scrum, and ideal for anyone interested in being part of, collaborating with, or growing and leading a Scrum Team.
