Many companies today are moving to an 'Agile' development and delivery process; having seen the benifits. One of the most common used is Scrum.

New adopters of Scrum create; or look to create new Scrum teams; but most have little starting knowledge on creating or running a team. This can be learnt over time by trial and error but this puts the team at a bad starting point.

This course has been created from the knowledge and experience I have gained from creating a number of new Scrum Teams in a number of companies.

In this course we go through points of learning; giving you the information you need to know up front before starting your team. We discuss team structure; points for planning and working in Scrum and how to learn from each sprint and move forward.

By taking this course you will not gain time back instead of having months of trial and error. You will know what to expect from your team; you will have answers to the questions they have and you will be able to let them know the expectations. You will also be able to set them up on an expected learning and improvement plan.

The course includes all roles in the Scrum Team from the Product Owner to the Development Team.

So, take that first step. Don't spend months loosing time and money. Learn up front now and start your team the right way.

Who is the target audience?
  • Anyone new to scrum
  • Anyone who is putting together a new scrum team
  • Anyone who has been put into a new scrum team
  • New Scrum Masters

Developer, Video Creator, Podcaster and Mentor. Just 4 titles that could describe me and what I do.

I’ve been working in the IT industry for 18 years now and have worked as a Developer, Scrum Master and Team Leader. I’ve also been a student of many as well as mentored many others during that time.

I’ve created video content on YouTube; some popular and some not so. This helped me in gaining the experience to creating good video content for my training courses.

I’ve also spent some time creating podcasts over the years; more recently with a new podcast related to ‘Geekz Talk’(just a plug). – giving me yet more gain and experience on giving content to people and providing more for everyone who is looking for extra content.

I’m here to give to you my experience; my industry lesson learnt and my voice to help you move forward in the subject you want to learn.
