Scrum’s rules and ceremonies are easy to understand, but most organizations still struggle with implementing Scrum. Is the daily scrum a status meeting? What good is a burndown chart? Construx’s Scrum training answers common Scrum questions and reintroduces Scrum as Scrum was designed to be. Construx’s work with agile leaders and on first-time Scrum implementations allows Construx to present not just the what of Scrum but also the why.

Guiding you through the detailed ins and outs that you need to succeed with Scrum, this course combines key aspects from the Scrum Guide with specific best practices based upon the instructor’s direct consulting experience with dozens of companies that have transitioned to Scrum.
