Playfully learn Scrum and Kanban
SCRUM is the most commonly used agile method in product development, with an uptake of 58%. This trend has also contributed to substantial changes in corporate culture and is used in numerous major companies, such as in the automotive industry. Is your company also one of those that would like to be or needs to be more agile? Are you also a project leader, who wants to be able to apply agile methods, but doesn't quite know how to do that yet? No problem! This Online Training will help you prepare yourself for the application of Scrum and Kanban in a practical way.
In the 30-minute Live Simulation - Scrum & Kanban Learning Unit, you will go through all Scrum meetings and learn what is expected of you there. You will be introduced to your project, receive a budget and will play the part of the subject matter expert, the so-called Product Owner. Furthermore, you will develop an understanding of the other Scrum roles, such as Scrum Master, Development Team and other stakeholders. In the subsequent bonus level, you will have the opportunity to expand your knowledge to include Kanban methodology.
This interactive Online Training will give you an overview of the relevant terms, fundamental principles and responsibilities when applying Scrum as a Product Owner. It will also give you a good understanding of how specific working processes function and which characteristics your employees need to have to apply this method in the best possible way.
