RGF Group’s Agile Scrum Team Workshop GTR March 25-26, 2021!

Our popular Virtual Agile Scrum Team Workshop is guaranteed to run March 25-26 2021! You can register on your own or as a team.

This is an online, live, instructor-led class taught by Vince Bordo, MS, CBAP, one of our most sought after Agile and Business Analysis Instructors.

This 2-day virtual workshop puts the distributed agile team members through their paces, by showing them how to conduct the five (5) scrum ceremonies, while also simulating key activities within a sprint, all while working remotely and using their own project as a case study for the exercises. This workshop utilizes an immersive learning approach, along with role playing, which allows students to assume their respective Scrum roles and practice the techniques as they learn.
Students work remotely and experience an environment that is fully leveraging agile concepts and culture. This format allows for better understanding of their own role on the team, and appreciate their team member’s contributions.

The highlights of this new course include:

 Virtual Delivery – Students collaborate online while learning Scrum roles, ceremonies, tasks, and techniques
 Dynamic workbook – Macro-enabled Excel worksheets help students build Backlogs, Release Plans, Burndown Charts, etc.
 Compact Learning Format – Students perform 18 hands-on workshops in 2-days (or four ½ day sessions)
 Team Building Exercises – The class will split up into 2 teams (7 or 8 people per team) and work together while simulating the Scrum ceremonies and a actual sprint
 Public or Private Delivery – Delivery format can accommodate both open enrollment or corporate Agile teams
 No Tool Required– Learn Scrum best practices without being encumbered by a tool (e.g., Jira)

By taking this 2-day workshop, participants will experience the leading Agile methodology, by using hands-on exercises and testing the basic premise and techniques behind agility.
