Get your teams trained in the world's most popular product development framework, Scrum!
The Applied Scrum Teams course is an engaging one-day private course designed to get your delivery teams up and running with Scrum. Focusing on the practical day-to-day operations of the Development Team (and the inherent sub-roles), at the conclusion of this course, your team members will know exactly:
- Where they fit in the Scrum framework
- How they should contribute; and
- What they’re responsible for.
We’ll get your team members talking the same language while aligning their operational behaviour.
