This training course prepares a (future) Scrum Team (Scrum Master, Product Owner, and members of the development team) for working agilely, particularly in a remote setup.
Many people want to work agilely these days, and many people are currently having to work remotely.
What does it mean in practice when a team switches to Scrum as a development method, especially when they are not physically on-site together? How do everyday working methods change? Which team members perform which tasks, assume which roles?
Agile methods are more than just processes to be followed. They involve a “mindset change” and are based on a different philosophy from that used in traditional software development methods.
This training course prepares a (future) Scrum Team (Scrum Master, Product Owner, and members of the development team) for agile work, particularly in a remote setup. Specifically, it discusses, among other things, how the standard Scrum events (Sprint Planning/Review/Retrospective, Daily Scrum) can be run remotely. It also, however, discusses topics such as team communication and conflict resolution within the context of a remote work environment.
The inovex Remote Scrum Team Training course consists of four modules of 3-4 hours each, which can be held remotely over several days. The focus of the course as a whole is on the “remote Scrum” aspect, with each module focusing specifically on how the methods, tools, and techniques introduced can be used even with fully distributed Scrum Teams (where each team member is in a different location). Many of these methods, tools, and techniques are used in the course itself to enable the participants to gain their first practical experience in using them.
Even in their remote versions, inovex training courses are not simply marathon slideshows. Instead, the participants work on almost all the course content independently in small groups, on the basis of literature or handouts provided.
- Practical introduction to iterative work
- The Agile mindset: “Doing agile” versus “Being agile”
- Scrum basics
Participants learn the agile values and principles and understand how they apply to software development. They also know the basics of Scrum and understand the relationship between the agile values and principles and Scrum, particularly in remote work environments.
- Scrum roles
- Scrum events and artifacts
- Effective organization of Scrum events (Sprint Planning/Review/Retrospective and Daily Scrum) in a remote setup
- Simulation of a Scrum project
Participants know the roles, artifacts, and events involved in Scrum. They also experience how it feels to work together as a team on a project using Scrum and learn the methods and tools with which Scrum events can be run effectively, even in remote environments.
- Domain complexity: he Cynefin framework and the Stacey matrix
- Introduction to user stories and agile estimating
Participants understand which (agile) development methods are most suitable in which situations. In addition, they become familiar with the basics of working with user stories, a method often used in combination with Scrum for agile requirements management, and the associated tools such as Planning poker, including their use in remote work environments.
- Holding a Lean Coffee for the collection, prioritisation, and processing of more in-depth topic
Participants deepen their knowledge of the contents of Modules 1-3 and develop potential ways to apply this knowledge to their current situations. They are also introduced to one of the most effective methods for (remote) meeting moderation – the Lean Coffee.
