Agile Scrum Foundations Workshop
- Team members of a team looking to improve their process by adopting the Scrum Framework.
- Project managers interested in transitioning to a Product Owner role. For a more specific approach, see the Product Owner Program.
- Managers and team leaders interested in supporting their teams in the agile adoption process. See Agile Leadership Workshop.
The Agile Scrum Foundations Workshop provides the knowledge needed to understand the Agile approach in general and the Scrum Framework in particular. The practical exercises offer hands-on experience of working in a Scrum team.
Practitioners looking to take their Scrum process to the next level will take away practical next steps and constructive approaches for improvement and acceleration. Learning about common patterns, traps, and team dysfunctions allows both novice and experienced practitioners to identify, expose and avoid them.
- Understand the foundational elements of Scrum and how they come together
- Experience the process first-hand in a Scrum team
- Learn how to begin transforming your team and organization using Scrum
- Start improving your process iteratively
- Deliver more value with less effort
The workshop lays the groundwork for a healthy and efficient start to using Scrum in a team. The first part of the workshop provides the information needed to start, and the second part takes this information in the actual process of the team.
We look at and clarify roles, interactions, processes, pitfalls, tips and tricks to facilitate a successful transition to Scrum.
The main purpose is for the participants to understand the why of Agile in general and the Scrum Framework in particular in order to be able to effectively use the framework in their daily work. The workshop covers theoretical aspects related to:
- Agile Manifesto
- Agile Manifesto Principles
- The Scrum Framework
- Scrum Roles
- Scrum Process
- Scrum Artifacts
While becoming familiar with the framework we need to practice linking the theory with practical challenges we might encounter. Working with their opinions, preconceptions and practical experience and connecting to the course material helps them use what they learned in the future. The aim is not only to present the course material but also give them actionable insights.
We also use role plays in key points related to practical questions, needs for clarification in order for them to experience the process.
