Designed for those looking for a Scrum jumpstart. This practical two-day course prepares attendees to be able to start using Scrum immediately.

The course covers Scrum basics including the framework, mechanics and roles of Scrum. But it also teaches how to use Scrum in the real world via a mixture of modules of theory, followed by its application on a real project.

Learning outcomes

At the end of this course, attendees will understand:

  • How to accelerate the flow of value using the Scrum Framework
  • How to use Scrum to maximise value creation, provide transparency, improve customer and employee satisfaction
  • How to remove the barriers between development and the customer so that the customer/product owner directly drives value creation
  • The Scrum Framework
  • The key roles in Scrum, what their accountabilities are and how they work together to provide transparency and value
  • The Product Backlog, its importance and how to go about creating one
  • Estimating and planning Scrum projects
  • How sprints (iterations) work and the importance of time-boxing
  • Various techniques for tracking in Scrum
  • Velocity and its use
  • How Scrum focuses on quality and how quality is maintained
  • Release planning
  • The basics of scaling a Scrum project


You will learn what it feels like to be on a real Scrum team – experiencing many of the challenges you’re likely to face – building a real product while being coached by a practising field expert. This ‘learning by doing’ style of instruction demands your open mind and active participation.

We will apply the experiential activities to a discussion of advanced topics, such as how to use Scrum in multiple-team organisations, how to measure progress empirically at a macro level, release planning to maximise ROI and why such a simple framework disrupts organisations to be the best they can be.


No prerequisites are required but attendees will get more out of the training if they have read the Scrum Guide.
