About the Course
Understand agile and the Scrum framework quickly and easily
You've probably heard of agile and Scrum, most people have. If you are completely new to it, the terms and concepts might seem a bit overwhelming. Even if you've been doing Scrum for a while, we find people have different interpretations of what these words mean. Many people learned about Scrum by doing some form of it, but have never actually been trained on what the Scrum framework is and what the purpose of the meetings and roles are. As a result there are many things about Scrum that are misunderstood.
This course is for everyone. People completely new to agile looking for a quick overview and teams who have been doing it for a while looking for a refresher on the basics.
We've also structured it to be something you can do in a single sitting of 1 hour, or over a week watching only a few minutes at a time. We've included a workbook with some exercises you can do if you'd like to deepen your learning.
