Agile/Scrum for Learning and Development Teams


Course Number: AGL-178

Duration: 2 days (13 hours)

Format: Live, hands-on

Agile/Scrum Training Overview

An ongoing concern of Learning and Development (L&D) managers is how to deliver better and faster training results that increase the effectiveness of individuals and business units within the larger enterprise. Can your L&D or HR team design and implement your learning plan at the accelerated speed of modern business?

This Agile/Scrum for Learning and Development Teams training teaches attendees how to achieve these results by adopting the Agile Mindset and emphasizes the roles, events, and artifacts created in Agile and Scrum. Scrum ceremonies are explained and students gain an understanding of why transparency, inspection, and adaptation are key parts of Scrum. Common planning and estimating techniques are discussed and applied. Participants execute a Learning and Development case study during a Sprint, and teams learn how to adapt their processes to an Agile/Scrum Framework.
