This instructor-led class is intended to answer three questions commonly asked by executives, managers, and other decision-makers: What is Scrum?

This course is intended for executives, managers, and other leaders who want to learn more about Scrum, why it works, and a high-level approach to get started on their path to agility. Typical attendees are those who have never heard of Scrum but want their organization to become agile or those who may be evaluating Scrum, to see if it’s right for their organization. Other attendees may be from organizations that are already on their way to adopting Scrum. Regardless of your current capabilities, this course is flexible enough to give you the knowledge that you require.
There will be specific requirements for both in-person and live virtual classes that will be shown on that type of workshop below.
If you have more than 5 people to train it can be more cost-effective to have Martin come onsite and deliver a private course just for you. You can request a private course to be delivered onsite at your offices.
