As more and more companies find that the classic waterfall approach for project management does not fit their realities, Agile methodologies have emerged as the best solutions in the current dynamic project environment.
In many cases, not all requirements are clear before the project starts and requests for change are inserted often during development. Not less important is the fact that people have come to realize that the ability to estimate development efforts accurately is limited, at best. Scrum is a practical way to implement the Agile approach and is the focus of this course.
The course covers the Scrum framework and includes real life situation simulations and exercises, in which Scrum principles are practiced and important insights are reached.
The course officially certifies participants as Certified Scrum Masters.
Duration: 2 days.

Scrum is an Agile software development framework. Work is structured in cycles called sprints, iterations of work that are typically two to four weeks in duration. During each sprint, teams draw from a prioritized list of customer requirements (AKA product backlog), called user stories, so that the features that are developed first are those of the highest value to the customer. At the end of each sprint, a potentially shippable product is delivered
Scrum defines three roles: Scrum Team, Scrum Master and Product Owner.
The product owner has a unique and critical role since he/she has the following responsibilities:
* o Definition of the features of the product;
* o Decision about the release date and content;
* o The profitability of the product (ROI);
* o Prioritization of the features according to market (business) value;
* o Adjusting features and their priority every 30 days, or as needed;
Acceptance or rejection of the work results.
