A Beginner’s Guide to Scrum Project Management

Packt via FutureLearn


Deliver efficient project management as part of a Scrum team

The Scrum framework demonstrates an iterative approach to problem-solving and delivering customer value. It’s known for its speed, simplicity, and adaptability.

On this course, you’ll be guided through the basics of Scrum project management, learning the key terminology and applications used within the framework.

With this knowledge, you’ll be able to adapt your current work processes and integrate Scrum methods to improve product development delivery and efficiency across processes.

Explore the difference between Scrum and Waterfall project management

Traditional project management methods rely on structured, sequential execution and often, as a result, hit bottlenecks and problems when needs change.

You’ll learn the advantages of a Scrum approach to product delivery, examining the impact of collaborative, cyclic, and adaptive processes.

Using this framework, you can assess the benefits of adopting Scrum within your own organisation, identifying areas where Agile working would be most effective.

Learn the applications of key terminology, from Scrum artifacts to retrospectives

Scrum uses unique terminology to describe its framework, most of which may be unfamiliar to those new to Scrum.

You’ll examine core terms and learn how each fits into the Scrum ritual. You’ll then investigate real-world examples of Agile working, giving you a sense of Scrum in action.

Discover the roles within a Scrum team from product owner to Scrum Master

Scrum teams have cross-functional skills and are able to effectively self-manage.

You’ll be introduced to the roles within a Scrum team and learn their contribution to efficient project management.

By the end of this course, you’ll understand the Scrum framework and its impact, both on the efficiency of product delivery and team wellbeing.

This course is for project managers, software developers and anyone who works within a product delivery team.

It is particularly suited to team leaders and those who want to further their understanding of Agile methodology and how to implement it within different contexts.
