This course will also provide value for individuals outside the development team (managers, Scrum Masters, coaches, and other stakeholders) who want hands-on exposure to the capabilities of Azure Boards. Having some project management and software development experience, either as a team member or as a manager, is recommended.

We believe that every organisation deserves usable software on a regular cadence that delivers the highest possible value. Organisations are complex systems.
