When and where
Wednesday 9th September 2015
6pm – 8.30pm
Manifesto Digital – 1st Floor, Gensurco House, 52-54 Rosebery Avenue, Clerkenwell, EC1R 4RP
The goal: getting to know the basics of Scrum…
Jim Bowes condenses what is normally a four hour introduction to Scrum into a much shorter session. A lively and practical way to get a good understanding of Scrum methodology, through talk and practical exercises, whilst leaving plenty of time to answer and discuss any burning questions. All whilst enjoying a good slice of cake and a beer.
So, if you’ve recently started working in a Scrum team, or if you work in an organisation where Scrum is being adopted, or might be adopted, or if you’ve had a taste of Scrum and are considering becoming a certified ScrumMaster, this course will help you with the backlog of questions you’ve doubtlessly built.
Although no prior knowledge is assumed attendees should ideally have had some exposure to projects and project management.

A little more about Agile and Scrum
Agile project management has grown rapidly in popularity since the principles were first set out in 2001 and Scrum is by far the most popular implementation of Agile. In Scrum cross-functional, self-organising teams tackle discreet amounts of work in timeboxes called sprints. Scrum uses a set framework of meetings to aid planning, collaboration and productivity.
