The Professional Scrum Foundations training course is a two-day course which prepares individuals or teams for using Scrum effectively. The Scrum framework, mechanics, and roles within Scrum are experienced directly through a simulation: delegates experience technical and requirements uncertainty by building a real product over several sprints. With each cycle, delegates learn and apply the principles and practices that allow them to take control and improve their process.

This Scrum.org certified class includes up to two free attempts at the PSM-I assessment. Delegates take a multiple choice assessment after the class, leading to a permanent qualification with no renewal fees.

Course Content

Scrum Simulation

Delegates are thrown in at the deep end and asked to produce working software in 30 minutes based on a backlog of requirements. It is often surprising to the delegates how they are able to organise themselves around this challenge. A review is then held to see what progress was made, whether features met expectations, and what should be done next. Incorrect assumptions are quickly identified and adjusted. Finally, a retrospective is held, allowing teams to improve on their process and deal with challenges they experienced; such as poor technical choices or ineffective collaboration.

This case study project is continued with up to four sprints over the two-day class, allowing delegates to learn some theory and then put it straight into practice. As teams learn more about themselves and their product, they are able to adapt their plan to meet changing demand.

The Scrum Framework

Having experienced the considerable uncertainty in the first sprint, delegates explore the uncertainties of complex software product delivery by considering what might change with regards to requirements, technology and people.

Students then dive into the Scrum framework itself:

  • Scrum roles: product owner; development team; scrum master.
  • Scrum artefacts: product backlog; sprint backlog; increment.
  • Scrum events: sprint; sprint planning; daily scrum; sprint review; sprint retrospective.

Delegates then assign themselves roles and conduct a sprint planning session for the next sprint in the simulation.

Mastering Scrum

Scrum is founded on some principles that are the key to moving beyond mechanical scrum where teams focus solely on showing up for a daily meeting and actually take control. We’ll explore the ideas of self-organisation, cross functional teams and cross-functional people and the accountabilities that arise from developers owning their sprint backlog.

Planning, Estimating and Forecasting

Delegates will learn the full set of complementary techniques used by many scrum teams to plan and track progress:

  • Story point estimation with planning poker.
  • Burn-down charts and velocity.
  • Effective use of sprint reviews to keep stakeholders closely involved and informed.

Beginning your Scrum Transformation

The course concludes with practical tips on how to go about kicking off a scrum transformation, including establishing a sense of purpose amongst everyone involved, deciding whether or not Scrum is the right process for the work at hand and finally producing a backlog of things that need to be put in place. This backlog is specific to the attendees and may alternatively serve as an improvement backlog for established teams.

Professional Scrum Foundations Training Course Outcomes

Delegates will leave with a backlog of things they can do as soon as they get back to work. Whether they are planning on forming a new scrum team, or improving their existing process, everyone will leave with something tangible to do.
