The class is designed extremely well to be able to quickly dissect and understand all the parts of this framework. Russell is a fantastic instructor, and took the time to not only connect me to the material, but also to speak directly to the challenges that I will face in guiding my organization to going beyond a Mechanical Scrum."

DEFINITION OF SCRUM

Scrum is a framework to help product development teams be effective at delivering value in a complex environment. It focuses on incremental, iterative product development and delivery.  Scrum is built on empirical process control, in which transparency enables inspection and adaptation. While Scrum is simple to understand, it is difficult to master.

SCRUM GUIDE

Reading the Scrum Guide in advance will provide you with knowledge of the Scrum framework. This provides context to the training and will help maximize learning. Being open-minded and passionate about new ideas is a great mindset while attending the class. After the completion of the class, you will be sent further reference material.
