Message from General Assembly:
The well-being of our employees, students, clients, instructors, and guests is our number one priority here at General Assembly. We are monitoring COVID-19 very carefully and are adjusting delivery of our programs. Due to the current health concerns, all GA short-form events, workshops & bootcamps will temporarily be held online – including this one. Registered participants will be notified 24 hours in advance of this program with information on how to log in to the Zoom Meeting Room and other tools you’ll need for the session. Registration for this offering will close 2 hours prior to the session start in order to allow all students ample opportunity to have the technology enabled.

ABOUT THIS WORKSHOP

Scrum is used extensively, but not exclusively, in web and software development. Everyone from developers to business execs are now expected to know how to work using Scrum, but few are taught it and many struggle along with misinformed ideas. This Agile and Scrum training will cover the main principles and ideas underpinning Agile and why using Scrum is the best way to run certain projects. Through games, hands-on practice and project simulations, you’ll be armed with the knowledge of how to use Scrum on a day-to-day basis.

Learners may receive 4 SEUs / 4 PDUs upon completing this course.

  • explore the roles in Scrum
  • go through the planning process (including product backlogs, sprint backlogs, prioritisation, sizing and estimation, and velocity)
  • run sprints (including the daily Scrum)

This bootcamp is aimed at anyone who wants to know more about agile and Scrum. Knowledge on how to use Scrum is particularly important to those involved in web development, software engineering and business development, but it isn’t limited to the tech industry.
