Agile PM Bootcamp for Experienced Scrum Masters
Traditional scrum training covers the mechanics of the scrum framework, managing requirements changes through the product backlog, running daily scrum meetings, building and interpreting a sprint burndown chart, the importance of end-of-iteration demos, and more. Scrum, however, is an incomplete framework, as it provides little guidance on how to perform other activities of key importance to the project lifecycle: preparing budget forecasts and the project business case, strategies for obtaining project funding, aligning the scrum framework with common organizational gating models, a structured 3-step approach to backlog prioritization, how to engage business stakeholders in preparing the overall project schedule (release plan), and how to forecast overall project completion dates. In this intensive, one-day workshop, participants will discover the missing pieces that complete the puzzle of how to make scrum work effectively in a large corporate environment.
This course also covers additional information scrum masters will need to successfully complete the Certified Agile Project Manager (Cert.APM) or PMI Agile-Certified Practitioner (PMI-ACP) exams.
One full day of lectures and workshop activities, starting at 9:00 a.m. and ending at 5:00 p.m., with two 15-minute breaks and a 30-minute lunch break.
Students will be provided with an in-class workbook containing copies of the presentation materials.
