Successful Scrum for Teams is a 2-day workshop that provides a solid foundation in Scrum while giving an opportunity to dive into advanced concepts.

Participants learn the skills required to participate in various roles of a Scrum Team and effectively deliver on sprint goals. Advanced techniques can be covered to assist in delivering earlier and often within sprints and to help deepen the focus on continuous improvement.
