Agile Development Workshop

​Scrum is the most popular of the Agile software development methodologies.

It is a simple yet incredibly powerful set of principles and practices that help teams deliver products in short cycles, enabling fast feedback, continual improvement, and rapid adaptation to change.

Through this course, participants will gain practical experience working with Scrum tools such as the Product Backlog, the Sprint Backlog, Kanban boards and Burndown graphs.

Participants will also work through the full Scrum cycle and learn about Scrum activities including the Sprint Planning meeting, the Daily Scrum meetings, the Product Demo meeting and finally the Sprint Retrospective.
