Agile for Teams
Practical, Hands-on Training for the Whole TeamEarn 14 PDUs for PMP/ACP*High-performing teams are the engines that drive successful products and organizations. Building a high-performing agile team doesn't happen by accident - it requires a thorough understanding of agile values and principles that inform the practices teams need to become great. Communication, collaboration, and cross-functionality are the hallmarks of great teams. In this course you will learn how to use Scrum and other agile practices to build a truly great team.The Neglected Role: Team MemberMost agile training focuses on one role: ScrumMaster.
