Benefits of Taking This Course:

Learners will be able to apply the following in practice:

Customer satisfaction: Agile Scrum facilitates changing customer requirements. The flexible way of working allows for changing demands and new features. Changes can easily be facilitated, without disrupting the project flow or affecting the team’s morale.

Transparency: one of the Agile Scrum principles is active ‘user’ and/or product owner involvement. The progress, status, changes are all visible so that it is clear at all times what the end product will be like. This way, expectations are effectively managed.

High Quality & Low Risk: testing is integrated throughout the project so that any quality issues can be detected and addressed at an early stage.
