Scaled Professional Scrum with Nexus

SPS | 2 Days | Intermediate | Practitioners

Course Overview

In the Scaled Professional Scrum™ (SPS) with Nexus 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.

All of our classes can be delivered in-person, or as Live Virtual Classrooms anywhere in the world.
