Course Overview
Hello. This is Derek Davidson here. Welcome to my course, Introducing Scrum Artifact and the Definition of Done. I'm an independent Professional Scrum Trainer licensed by Scrum.org to deliver Professional Scrum Master, Product Owner, and Scrum Foundations courses, as well as the Professional Scrum with Kanban, Professional Scrum Developer, and Scaled Professional Scrum courses. Scrum is the world's most widely used agile framework. According to the 2019 State of Agile Report from collab.net, more than half of all agile implementations worldwide use Scrum. In this course, I focus on the Scrum artifact and the Definition of Done. Some of the major topics that we'll cover include the following. Not only will you get a thorough grounding in the artifacts and the Definition of Done, I share some working Scrum Master tips too. Number one, the product backlog, the primary focus tool in Scrum. Get this right and what follows is much easier. Number two, the sprint backlog, the plan created and used by the development team to measure their progress towards achieving the sprint goal. Number three, the increment, the tangible realization of the work of the sprint. And number four, the Definition of Done, a shared understanding across the Scrum team of what it means when we say we're done. By the end of this course, you'll have a deeper appreciation of the Scrum artifacts and detailed knowledge of the use and application of the Definition of Done. Before beginning the course, you'll benefit from having viewed my Introducing Professional Scrum, Introducing Scrum Roles, and Introducing Scrum Events courses.
