Professional Scrum Foundations
Taught by Joshua Partogi
December 12-13, 2012 in Shah Alam, Malaysia
This year get Professional Scrum Master Certified and learn the basics of Scrum from the home of Scrum.
The Professional Scrum Foundations course is appropriate for anyone working on or with a Scrum Team. The course is especially well suited to companies or teams investigating Scrum, those who are currently struggling with Scrum, or those beginning to utilize Scrum in their development environment.
But the PSF course isn’t for everyone. Well-functioning Scrum teams looking for assistance with advanced topics like scaling Scrum or implementing a rigorous ROI framework will not receive as much benefit from this course. Teams looking to explore more advanced Scrum topics such as Scaling Scrum or Release Planning should consider the Professional Scrum Master program.
After class, attendees will have 14 days to take the Professional Scrum Master I online assessment, which consists of 80 multiple choice questions. If they score 85%, they will receive PSM I certification. The cost of the first attempt is included in the price of the PSM class. Subsequent attempts are $100 each. Attendees do not need to go to a test centre to take the online assessment and can take the assessment anywhere they wish, including from Starbucks, as long as they have a reliable and fast internet connection.
Registration for this class has closed.
In addition to the subjects noted below, students actively participate in the Scrum process with realistic and practical hands-on exercises that reinforce the learning points. Practicing Scrum ensures that students complete the class with new skills in addition to new knowledge and theory.
The Scrum Framework
Students dive into the Scrum software development framework including, roles and responsibilities, principles, artifacts, events and time boxes, and rules and customs.
Introducing Scrum and Agile
This module discusses the current state of the software industry and Scrum’s role within it. Topics include the origins of Scrum, misconceptions of the framework, the value that Scrum provides, and an exploration of self-organization as a power tool for increasing productivity.
Learn practical techniques of planning releases, managing Product Backlogs, keeping Sprints on track, and maintaining healthy team behaviors. Although many effective techniques exist for expressing requirements, this module equips teams to discover, express, and decompose requirements as Backlog Items using proven techniques.
Keeping Scrum Healthy
This module focuses on common missteps teams make when adopting Scrum and strategies to avoid them. In addition to discussing typical patterns/anti-patterns in this module, class attendees practice some of the more courageous conversations that commonly occur.
Following an excellent training event, Teams often struggle implementing what seemed so reasonable just a few days ago. This discussion helps attendees plan and prepare to actually be effective with Scrum immediately, marking the PSF as the true catalyst for change and increasing agility within your organization.
