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.
