Agile Fundamentals: Agile Scrum for Beginners
Learn the basics of Agile Scrum methodologies
This course is designed to provide a comprehensive understanding of Agile Scrum framework for project management. Whether you are a project manager or a team member, this course will help you develop the skills and knowledge needed to manage complex projects using the Agile philosophy. No previous experience with the Scrum framework is required.
We will begin with the values and principles that underpin this distinctive project management methodology. You will then explore the framework and its components, such as Scrum roles, Scrum stories, estimation, Scrum backlog, Scrum sprints, and Scrum meetings, and learn how these differ from their counterparts in other, more traditional project management tools.
We will take a look at organizing your current project team to align the Agile Scrum approach, and we’ll discuss some of the typical problems that confront project managers and how the Scrum framework can help you address them.
Additionally, you will learn about the Scaled Agile Framework (SAFe), which is used for large, complex, and distributed projects with multiple teams. The course wraps up with a case study and a look at what’s next on your journey with the Scrum framework.
Each section closes with exercises to practice your new skills and solidify the concepts.
By the end of this course, you will be equipped with the skills and knowledge you need to manage projects using the Agile Scrum framework—applying Scrum principles, ensuring team alignment, and tracking project progress effectively.
