Scrum is used extensively, but not exclusively, in web and software development. Everyone from developers to business execs are now expected to know how to work using Scrum, but few are taught it and many struggle along with misinformed ideas. This bootcamp will cover the main principles and ideas underpinning agile and why using Scrum is the best way to run certain projects. Through games, hands-on practice and project simulations, you’ll be armed with the knowledge of how to use Scrum on a day-to-day basis.
• Why the Agile Manifesto relates to your preferred ways of working • How iterative and incremental approaches can benefit projects • The roles in Scrum • How to plan projects and track their progress (including product backlogs, sprint backlogs, prioritisation, sizing and estimation, and velocity) • The review and improvement process (including sprint reviews and retrospectives) • Simulations of sprints to demonstrate how the roles, events and artefacts of Scrum work in practice.
This bootcamp is aimed at anyone who wants to know more about agile and Scrum. Knowledge on how to use Scrum is particularly important to those involved in web development, software engineering and product delivery, but it isn’t limited to the tech industry.
