The Professional Scrum Foundations (PSF) course is a 2-day course that teaches Scrum in a highly practical way. Working in a series of Sprints, teams of students build a software application, thereby facing real-life problems. The mechanics, roles, principles and (empirical) process of Scrum are demonstrated. Common missteps and misunderstandings are discussed so students grow a higher awareness of their symptoms.
Professional Scrum Foundations is excellent training for teams and anyone wanting to experience the Scrum way of working. The course also provides the foundation of knowledge needed for role-focused training for Product Owners, Scrum Masters and Developers.
The Professional Scrum Foundations course is the perfect introduction, reboot or refresher to Scrum. Students hit the ground running through instruction and team-based exercises.
Attendees make the most of the class if they:
- Have studied the Scrum Guide (required).
- Have been closely involved or have a high interest with a project that builds or enhances a software product or application.
