Agile & Scrum Fundamentals 1-Day Training from - August
This one-day class is designed to provide you with a rapid foundation in the values, benefits, and practices of Agile and Scrum. After completing this class, you'll have a solid understanding of what "doing Agile" or "adopting Scrum" really means and be ready to move forward with Scrum in your organization. If you already do Scrum and need to spin up more teams or on-board new employees quickly, this is the class for you.

Here's a quick list of the topics the class covers:

- Comparing traditional approaches and Agile approaches
- Conducting iterative planning and development with Scrum, Kanban, and XP
- Understanding the roles, events, artifacts, and rules of Scrum
- Creating, ordering, and grooming the product backlog
- Writing, slicing, and sizing user stories
- Working with a Definition of Ready (DoR) and a Definition of Done (DoD)
- Planning and tracking releases and sprints
- Visualizing progress with taskboards, burndowns, and burnups
- Estimating with teams using planning poker and affinity techniques
- Understanding team velocity and role metrics
- Conducting effective standups, sprint planning, sprint reviews, and retrospectives

Why a one-day class?

It's simple. The goal is to impart the essentials of Agile and Scrum to each participant in the shortest amount of time using an active classroom with simulations and interactive team learning exercises.

Who should attend?

With rich, useful content, a single day commitment, and a low price, the class is great for both individuals and teams. Individuals quickly gain the knowledge they need to broaden their skills and make themselves more marketable. Who can't spare a day for that.

As for teams, the class delivers even more value by making it easy to afford sending team members together and compounding the learning they bring back to their companies. Compare that to sending a single person to a two-day class for $1500 and hoping that they'll be able to share what they learned to others.
