Description

This course will teach you how to put your best foot forward to self-organize, collaborate and communicate within the Scrum team to contribute to successful projects. The course syllabus includes 21 beginner level lessons:

Project Management Approaches

  • Project Management Methodology - Agile/Scrum is a project management methodology. This means that it provides a set of tools and processes that can be used to organize and manage the project activities.
  • Sequential Methodology - A sequential project management methodology is a traditional approach to project management. It minimizes risk, but this conservative approach can be lengthy and expensive.
  • Concurrent Methodology - The concurrent project management methodology is a collaborative approach. It can significantly accelerate a project as compared to the sequential approach, but it is much more difficult to project manage.
  • Agile/Scrum Methodology - The Agile/Scrum project management methodology is an iterative approach that requires fewer resources than other approaches.
  • Project Management Methodology Comparisons - The three approaches presented are three very different ways of managing a project. Understanding the differences will enable a business to select the best approach for their projects.

Agile/Scrum Elements

  • Sprint - Scrum Process - The Agile/Scrum methodology is a structured project management methodology. It follows a prescribed process that includes Sprints and Scrums.
  • Sprint - Scrum Meetings - Within the Agile/Scrum project management methodology there are a set of meetings that are used to plan and manage the process. Rather than analytical tools, this methodology relies heavily on the use of specific targeted meetings.
  • Story Cards - Story Cards, also known as Product Backlog Items (PBIs) are the technique used for documenting project scope, quality requirements, estimates and priority of the deliverables in an Agile/Scrum project.
  • Product Backlog - The product backlog is the prioritized list of project deliverables.
  • Sprint - Scrum Team - The Scrum Team performs the project work conducted during a Sprint on an Agile/Scrum project.
  • Scrum Master - The Scrum Master is the individual who is responsible for facilitating the Agile/Scrum Sprint process.
  • Sprint Controls - Sprint Controls are the project management tools that are used by the Scrum Master and Scrum Team to assess performance.

Process Steps

  • Step 0: Vision - A clear goal or vision is essential to project success. That is as true with Agile/Scrum as with traditional projects.
  • Step 1: Preparing the Product Backlog - Preparing the Product Backlog is the first step in the Agile/Scrum Sprint methodology. It includes creating and prioritizing all the Story Cards.
  • Step 2: Assign Scrum Team - To do the work of the Sprint, a Scrum Team must be assigned.
  • Step 3: Sprint Planning - The Sprint is initiated with a Sprint Planning Session that organizes the work, estimates the effort, and initializes the Scrum Board and Burn Down Chart.
  • Step 4: Sprint Execution - Sprint execution is the actual work of the Scrum team during the Sprint to accomplish the tasks needed to complete each Story in the Sprint Backlog.
  • Step 5: Sprint Demonstration - The Sprint Demonstration is the formal meeting where the Scrum Team demonstrates to the Product Owner the performance of each deliverable that was created during the Sprint.
  • Step 6: Sprint Retrospective - The Sprint Retrospective is a lessons learned meeting with a focus of identifying opportunities to improve the performance and management of the next Sprint.

Managing the Sprint

  • Self-Organizing Teams - Scrum Teams do not rely on assigned project management roles, rather the team organizes and manages itself.
  • Scrum Meetings - During a Sprint, the Scrum Team meets daily at a Scrum Meeting to provide status on progress.
