Applying Professional Scrum

Live Virtual Class, December 12-15, 2022

Class Overview

The Applying Professional Scrum (APS) is delivered as a flipped learning experience divided into learning blocks, each with presentations and lectures in the form of videos, reading material, and writing activities that are provided for self-study complemented by 1/2 day live virtual sessions delivered online using Microsoft Teams and Mural.

 

Applying Professional Scrum (APS) enables students to experience how professional Scrum and the Scrum framework improve their ability to deliver value compared to traditional methods. Scrum provides a better way of working that highlights experimentation, incremental delivery of customer value, frequent feedback loops and the fostering of strong team dynamics.

Unique to the Applying Professional Scrum (APS) is the introduction of a series of practical Sprints that allow students to experience what it’s like to use Scrum and how different team behaviours impact on the outcomes. Each of the four 210-minute sessions included a 70m Sprint within which the participants can practice in a safe space to experiment and learn:

  • Session 1: Fundamentals of Scrum & Sprint 1
  • Session 2: Exploring the Scrum Framework & Sprint 2
  • Session 3: Deeper into Scrum & Sprint 3
  • Session 4: Planning, Getting Started, & Sprint 4

There are a number of available case studies:

  • Minecraft Campsite (Recommended) – practice Scrum in the complex and chaotic environment of Minecraft to experience the high variance world of complex product development. We use Minecraft for Education to bring complexity to life in a scenario that everyone can experience regardless of their technical ability.
  • Animal Website –
  • Marketing Campaign –

The course also includes two free attempts at the globally recognized Professional Scrum Master I certification exam (PSM I)

    We recognise the positive impact that a happy AND motivated workforce, that has purpose, has on client experience. We help change mindsets towards a people-first culture where everyone encourages others to learn and grow. The resulting divergent thinking leads to many different ideas and opportunities for the success of the organisation.

    By reducing bureaucracy and command and control management, we believe that everyone will take responsibility for achieving the organisation’s goals. Our tailored blend of training, coaching and mentoring, gives people the opportunity to learn and develop, making the organisation, and its clients, successful.

    Flipped Learning Experience

    Flipped learning is an alternative format that moves some or all of the learning of theory away from the classroom, and reflecting and practising is done in the class (hence the name “Flipped Learning”).

    Benefits of flipped learning

    • Consuming content in smaller iterations helps learning stick
    • Multiple reflection cycles make the practical application of learning more impactful
    • Variations of learning environment cater better for personal learning styles
    • Continued access to learning materials

    Flipped Learning Experience Overview

    This class comes with 16 hours of live virtual classroom experience. The course content is divided into learning blocks, each with presentations and lectures in the form of videos, reading material, and writing activities that are provided for self-study complemented by 1/2 day live virtual sessions delivered online using Microsoft Teams and Mural. These live interactive workshops create a dynamic and interactive environment where we dive into the core concepts of Scrum for teams through group activities, interactions, and sharing experiences, all with the guidance of an expert Professional Scrum Trainer.

    Obtaining new knowledge through self-study materials along with having an in-depth, rich engagement in a class allows students to enjoy learning that sticks. Students will complete the course ready to take the globally recognised Professional Scrum Master I certification exam which is included in the course fee.

    Student will leave this course with an application for Applying Professional Scrum.

    Prerequisites

    • Computer – Your computer will need to be fast enough to run both Microsoft Teams and Mural. We recommend 2 monitors so that you can see everyone and the work easily.
    • Webcam – Please consider your staging and presence; what others see when you are on video. Try to avoid backlighting that renders you in shadow, the up-nostril, the baldie, or the half-head. 80% of human communication comes from body language and other visual queues. Consider your camera angles and try to have a view that is as close to what you would expect in person across a table.
    • Internet – We recommend a strong internet to support high fidelity video both from you and with us.

    Supporting people with disabilities

    We do our best to support people with disabilities. Please ask us about what we can do. Closed Captioning – For persons who are deaf or hard-of-hearing, live captions allow to see what others are saying. Class Recording – A meeting recording can be helpful for people with cognitive difficulties, for example. You can go through the recording at your own pace as well as go back to double-check anything you might have missed.
