Class description and objectives
Scrum@Scale focuses on the organization as whole, emphasizing how to optimize coordination with a “minimum viable bureaucracy.” You will learn the various components of the Scrum@Scale framework, such as scaled roles, scaled events, and enterprise artifacts.
Some concepts in the course include:
The elements of the Scrum Master Cycle (the “how” of Scrum), including concepts such as cross-team coordination, impediment removal, and the Executive Action Team
The elements of the Product Owner Cycle (the “why” of Scrum), including concepts such as strategic planning, release planning, and the Executive Meta Scrum
How these elements combine together to optimize organizational effectiveness
Where should you get started with your Scrum@Scale implementation
Once you understand how these elements can help transform your organization holistically, you can create a plan specifically tailored and prioritized to your situation. Implement what you’re ready for, building upon the elements of the framework over time.
Since this is not an introductory course to Scrum, attendees are expected to have earned the two-day Certified ScrumMaster (CSM) or Certified Scrum Product Owner (CSPO) credential or its equivalent. Alternatively, comparable real-world experience implementing Scrum is highly beneficial.
Benefits and takeaways
