This two-day, advanced course picks up where the Certified ScrumMaster and other introductory agile courses leave off. Drawing and expanding on concepts in Mike's Succeeding with Agile book, this course will help you move beyond initial success to sustained agility.

Attendees should have a solid understanding of agile concepts and the principles and practices of Scrum prior to tackling this material.

Participants will learn advanced teamwork techniques, including ways to subtly guide a self-organizing team and how to ensure that all team members (including designers, architects, and testers) are busy on each day of the sprint. They will discover ways to effectively scale Scrum, in one location or on a globally distributed team. The course will explore what it means to be agile while meeting regulatory compliance requirements, how to overcome common problems, and tools for measuring the benefits of agile.

Agile isn't a final destination; it's something you grow towards each day. Learn how to iterate towards a higher level of agility, no matter where you are on your journey.

What Will You Learn?

  • How the roles of project managers, functional managers, programmers, testers, data professionals, architects, analysts, and others change in an agile process
  • Ways in which a leader can influence a self-organizing team
  • How to incorporate technical design, interaction design, and architecture into agile projects

Who Should Attend?

This advanced course is suited for anyone who has previously attended an introductory agile or Scrum training course, such as a Certified ScrumMaster or Certified Scrum Product Owner class. It is also appropriate for anyone with prior agile experience who is looking for answers to the hundreds of questions that arise during any agile adoption.
