This instructor-led class is intended to answer three questions commonly asked by Stakeholders: What is Scrum? Why will Scrum be better for me? How will I work differently going forward. Through presentation and discussion, attendees will learn the answers to these questions. By forming into teams and collaborating on activities and discussions, attendees will experience and see the truth behind those answers.
All of our classes can be delivered in-person, or as Live Virtual Classrooms anywhere in the world.
Our world changed at the beginning of 2020 and since we believe in empiricism, we need to inspect and adapt. So we are offering our public students:

In Scrum, a Stakeholder is anyone that is potentially affected by the outcome of the product development. Stakeholders can include users, customers, managers, sponsors, business analysts, subject matter experts, help desk, operations/support, project managers, auditors, and more. This course is intended for anyone in that cloud of interested parties who wants to learn more about Scrum, why Scrum works, what process and culture changes are involved, and a roadmap for implementing those changes. Regardless of where your organization is at in their Scrum adoption, this course provides the knowledge and opportunity to ask questions about your piece of that pathway to agility.
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.
Delivery Mode: In-Person or Live Virtual
