About this course
After experiencing initial success with Scrum on small projects, companies are now looking to take Scrum to the next level. For some this means scaling Scrum to larger teams, multiple teams, or multiple sites. For others it means better integrating Scrum with existing business practices. For some it means pushing Scrum out to teams that weren’t initially ready for Scrum. And for others it means simply building on success—seeing how far Scrum can be optimized after its initial implementation.
This intensive course shares insights from Construx’s experience helping companies successfully scale Scrum beyond the individual project level. Extensive case studies and hands-on exercises provide practical advice for adopting Scrum planning and management practices and integrating them with other business processes to address the full software and product development lifecycles.
