Scrum makes visible the dysfunctions and waste that prevent organizations from reaching their true potental"― Kenneth S. Rubin, Essential Scrum: A Practical Guide to the Most Popular Agile Process

SCRUM is Human

Scrum is a way for teams to work together to develop a product. Product development, using Scrum, occurs in small pieces, with each piece building upon previously created pieces. Building products one small piece at a time encourages creativity and enables teams to respond to feedback and change, to build exactly and only what is needed.

However, Scrum is much more than a simple framework. Scrum supports our need to be human at work: to belong, to learn, to do, to create and be creative, to grow, to improve, and to interact with other people. In other words, Scrum leverages the innate traits and characteristics in people to allow them to do great things together

The course delivery models an Agile Scrum project and includes activities that further reinforce Agile methodologies and Scrum practices. Daily Scrums, Demonstrations and Retrospectives are integrated regularly in the course activities throughout the 2 days.
