What is Scrum? What You Will Learn in Scrum Master Training?

  • In a nutshell, Scrum is a process that allows you to go through a complete development cycle at ease. You can work at your own pace but work towards the organisation goal. Deliver the project on-time but with job satisfaction. Yes, it is a practical way to work on software development by participating in daily stand up meeting, accepting timelines for the sprint, discussing how to improve during the sprint retrospectives and closing backlogs one by one to finally deliver the product as per the customer expectation.
  • Scrum looks easy when you see other team working, but difficult when you start implementing. There are roadblocks, criticism, and much more. That’s exactly where Scrum Master training will help. This training will allow you to learn the agile practice in a practical way. You can get involved in activities and create scrum workflow on the go. Discuss a lot with all participants, make charts and estimate backlog in story points. Learn to write user stories for sample projects and also take a quiz to get deeper detail about the scrum and agile concepts.
  • In simple words, you will really become a master in implementing scrum methodology in your project. This course will focus on teaching you about how to “be agile” than doing agile. We tune your mindset to start conducting scrum ceremonies, update artifacts, plan scrum and releases.
