Course Overview
Hello. This is Derek Davidson here. Welcome to my course. Introducing the Scrum Events. I'm an independent professional Scrum trainer licensed by Scrum.org to deliver the Professional Scrum Master, Product Owner, and Scrum Foundations courses, as well as the Professional Scrum with Kanban and Scaled Professional Scrum courses. Scrum is the world's most widely used agile framework. According to the 2019 State of Agile report from CollabNet, more than half of all agile implementations worldwide use Scrum. In this course, we're going to focus on the Scrum events. Some of the major topics that we'll cover include the following: Not only will you get a thorough grounding in the events themselves, but myths are also busted. Firstly, the Scrum sprint and why it's limited to one month in length. Next, the daily Scrum, the events the Scrum master doesn't have to attend. The sprint review follows, the event that stakeholders love. And finally, the sprint retrospective, the accelerator in Scrum. By the end of this course, you'll know what all the Scrum events are and, more importantly, why they exist. Before beginning the course, you'll benefit from having viewed my Introducing Professional Scrum and Introducing Scrum Roles courses. I look forward to you joining me on this new course from me, Derek Davidson.
