Many companies are realising that the traditional project management principles are no longer applicable in today’s extremely dynamic and demanding environment. A fixed approach of planning is no longer a good method since it is very difficult to anticipate everything in advance and respond to it in the plan. Instead, more agile planning methods are required to accommodate for changing markets, technology and resources over the course of a typical project.
Professional Scrum Foundations (PSF) is a 1-day course that provides the foundational knowledge needed to work with Scrum in a highly practical way. The course is a combination of instruction and team-based exercises where students experience how the Scrum framework improves product delivery efforts. The course also includes taking the globally recognized Professional Scrum Foundation certification exam (PSF).
Students will experience learning the framework and gaining insights into overcoming complexity, with team-based collaboration and self-organization as essential elements in understanding Scrum. Students work together as a team in a series of Sprints to build a product, thereby facing real-life problems. The rules, roles, and principles of Scrum are leveraged during the exercises. From its emphasis on the practical application of Scrum, the course exposes common missteps and misunderstandings so students grow a higher awareness of the associated symptoms. The course provides prescriptive guidance to avoid going off track and keep Scrum healthy.
This class is taught publicly and privately for organizations. Our Professional Scrum Trainers will select one of several case studies which best meet the specific learning needs of the class including software, non-software, distributed teams, and more to maximize the value that students will take away from the class.
Professional Scrum Foundations is excellent training for organizations, teams and anyone wanting to experience the way of working in Scrum. The course also provides the foundation of knowledge needed for role-focused training for Product Owners, Scrum Masters, Developers, and Leaders within the organization. Whether you are getting started on your first Scrum effort or refreshing your knowledge, this course gives students the knowledge and direction to start using Scrum immediately after the class.
All participants completing the Professional Scrum Foundations course will receive a password to attempt the Professional Scrum Foundation (PSF) assessment. PSF class participants who attempt the PSF assessment within 14 days of the class and do not score at least 85% will be granted a 2nd attempt at no additional cost.
OAK provides the highest quality Scrum training, training materials and certified Professional Scrum Trainers (PSTs) to teach them.
