Course Summary – Agile and Scrum Training for Teams

The Agile and Scrum Training for Teams Course is a hands-on agile training workshop designed to be delivered to entire Scrum Teams at once. This includes the three Scrum Roles: the cross-functional Development Team, the Product Owner and the Scrum Master.
