The objective of this 2-day course is to impart the skills required for working as part of an Agile Scrum team. Participants learn the various activities involved in being a practitioner in an Agile SCRUM team. The participants will get an introduction to Agile and Scrum, release and sprint planning, estimation techniques, developing user stories, sprint review, sprint retrospective and tracking progress in Scrum projects etc. The participants can effectively be part of a Scrum team in an organization after attending this course.

Agile project management is as radically different from traditional project management as agile processes are different from traditional methodologies. Rather than plan, instruct and direct, the agile project manager facilitates, coaches and leads. In this training the participants learn how to be a Scrum Master and how to make a development team, a project or an organization agile. The Scrum Master is the person responsible for the proper execution of Scrum and all changes within the engineering and overall Scrum team.
