Course Content

Module One : Introduction to Scrum
A quick overview of Scrum. This e-learning module covers the rationale for Agile/Scrum, along with an overview of roles, meetings, and artifacts. The module ends with a challenging quiz which has been shown to increase scores on Scrum certification tests (such as Certified Scrum Master). If you're new to this, we suggest completing Modules 2-6 before attempting the Module 1 quiz.

  • What is Scrum?

Module Two

Module Three
Purpose of the Sprint Planning meeting. The roles of the Product Owner, Scrum Master, and Scrum Development Team in Sprint Planning. Sprint Planning Meeting timebox (maximum duration) and Sprint execution timebox. Example Product Backlog Items (PBIs, or user stories), Sprint Goals, and Sprint Tasks. Difference between the Product Backlog and Sprint Backlog. Slack required for innovation. Two part Sprint Planning vs. commitment-based planning. Starting with a usable Product Backlog (thanks to continuous Backlog Refinement Meetings). Example schedule for a two-week Sprint. Definition of Done: Planning a Sprint that includes all activities needed to develop a potentially shippable product increment, particularly testing. The Lean principle of reducing work in progress (WIP). The self managing team's ownership of its commitments. Saying "no" when necessary.

Module Four
What is the purpose of the standup? When do we have the meeting? Example answers to the three questions: What I did yesterday, what I will do today, what impedes me. Organizational impediments and the role of the Scrum Master during Sprint execution.

Module Five
This module covers the meeting held after the execution of each Sprint in which the team conducts a live demonstration of the working product increment for the Product Owner. For those outside the team, this is the most visible part of Scrum. Subtopics include: Acceptance criteria and definition of done, velocity, transparency, how to involve external stakeholders, and emergent requirements in the Product Backlog. This is an interactive, scenario based module. The learner observes a team and is prompted to make decisions as they progress through the Sprint Review Meeting.

Module 6
This module covers the final meeting associated with each Sprint. In this meeting, the team reflects on the Sprint to raise its own awareness of what transpired. It ends with agreements about specific adaptations for future Sprints. Subtopics include: checking for safety, "classic" retrospectives, focused conversation principles, timeline retrospectives, reaching agreements that stick, and how to learn more about facilitation.

Elective A (OPTIONAL): Product Owner Pitfalls
Should we have one Product Owner per team? One per product? One Product Backlog per team? One per product? This video was endorsed by Alistair Cockburn, one of the original authors of the Agile Manifesto.

Elective B (OPTIONAL): Large Scale Scrum (LeSS) Complete Picture Overview
If we have more than a dozen people, it's time to learn about Large Scale Scrum. Craig Larman and Bas Vodde developed Large Scale Scrum (LeSS) after hundreds of documented experiments. It has been used with up to 6000 people on an enormous product and is more aligned with Lean/Agile realities than any other "Scaled Agile" framework I've seen. The obstacles that are preventing you from doing Scrum are addressed head on by LeSS and LeSS Huge.

Elective C (OPTIONAL): Large Scale Scrum (LeSS) Framework

Elective D (OPTIONAL): Common Misconceptions About Large Scale Agility
PTIONAL for CSM/CSPO/CSD training. RECOMMENDED for CLB/CLP training.
