Scaled Professional Scrum (SPS) with Nexus

SPSP | 2 Days | Intermediate | Development Managers, Coaches, Facilitators, Change Agents, Leaders

The Scaled Professional Scrum (SPS) with Nexus Workshop is a 2-day course that teaches anyone involved with formulating, managing, and participating in scaled Scrum product development.  Students use a hands-on case study to learn about Nexus and over 50 practices to reduce dependencies at scale.

In the Scaled Professional Scrum (SPS) Workshop, you will simulate a large software development project using the Nexus Framework. Through this hands-on case study, you will learn over 50 practices to reduce complexity and dependencies at scale. You will leave with the knowledge and tools necessary to scale Scrum to deliver an Integrated Increment every Sprint.

This experience will help you understand the techniques, philosophies, and challenges that Ken Schwaber and Scrum.org have learned through years of formulating and coaching Scrum projects in enterprises.

The new roles, artifacts and events of the Nexus Framework

  • How to organize several teams working on the same product so productivity is optimized
  • Practices that will help teams efficiently build an integrated software product
  • Techniques to detect irregularities and how to address them appropriately
  • Challenges in large-scale development initiatives and how to get back on track

 

SPS is targeted at development leads and managers and anyone else involved in formulating, participating or managing scaled Scrum product development. Organizations are encouraged to send a team of people that will be (or already are) running large Scrum initiatives.

It is especially oriented to those who:

  • Already are effectively running small Scrum projects
  • Want to apply multiple Scrum teams to develop a large system or product
  • Managing scaled projects
  • Struggling with scaled projects 

Attendees make the most of the class if they:

  • Have studied the Nexus Guide (required).
  • Have a solid understanding of Scrum either through working with a Scrum Team or through taking a Professional Scrum Master class or similar course.
  • Have an understanding of development techniques, tools, and practices needed to sustain large scale development.
  • Passed the Nexus Open assessment.

All participants who complete the Scaled Professional Scrum workshop receive a password to attempt the Scaled Professional Scrum assessment (SPS).

The industry-recognized SPS certification requires a minimum passing score on this rigorous assessment. Scrum.org maintains a public list all SPS certificate holders.
