About the Course
As a software company executive or senior manager, you’ve likely noticed that your role is changing. A job that used to be about driving people to achieve results is now about enabling teams to be hyper-productive.
The question is, how can today’s leaders build teams that outpace everyone else? Scrum, an agile framework, has been used successfully to build hyper-productive teams.
In this video course, you will learn the values and principles of agile, what Scrum is, its base components, and how to work with Scrum teams to enable success.
In this video, Mitch Lacey, author of The Scrum Field Guide: Agile Advice for Your First Year and Beyond, will share his experiences helping teams adopt the Scrum framework in companies both large and small. He will also reveal patterns of successful teams.
High-level managers and C-suite executives will gain a set of ideas, concepts, tools and techniques to help them lead the organization to a higher productive state.
What You'll Learn
- Overview of Scrum – Learn how the principles and values of agile and Scrum form the foundation of a successful organization.
- Scrum Roles - The roles are simple, but understanding them and making a fluid, dynamic team is hard. This section dives into the roles and how they work together.
- Scrum Artifacts - Mapping project plans and managing specifications can be a challenge, especially if everything is done up front. In this section, we look at the artifacts in Scrum and how the work that has been done traditionally is still there but is handled differently.
- Scrum Meetings - Scrum appears to have more meetings, which might at first seem like too much overhead. Understanding what the meetings are for and how they build dynamic, high-performing teams is crucial to a successful Scrum implementation.
- How Managers and Leadership Teams Fit - What is the role of executives in an agile organization? Or a development lead or manager of a Scrum team, for that matter? In this section, we will explore the less talked-about parts of implementing Scrum - the role of managers - and look at patterns for success.
