cPrime provides agile coaching & consulting services for organizations looking to transition to the agile methodology. Agile coaching involves agile and scrum training and mentoring to all people involved in a scrum project, including an executive session. Our class on Enterprise Agile Development with Scrum provides an extremely practical, hands-on introduction to the Scrum process. Unlike certification classes that focus on one role, this class is designed for audiences that contain all roles: Developers, QA Engineers, Project Managers, Product Managers, and anyone else who needs to know how a Scrum process works at the practical level. Also unlike certification, the class focuses on the practical details of the Scrum process and its practices.
This class has two objectives. The first is to teach the students how to plan and execute projects with a Scrum process. We cover all of the Scrum practices in detail, with exercises for each, then conduct a five-hour sample Scrum project from beginning to end to make the experience as real and concrete as possible.
The second objective is to teach students how to capture requirements and plan implementations involving long time scales and multiple teams.
Students learn how to write requirements, how to estimate them with Planning Poker, and how to break them into tasks. They also learn how to create Sprint Backlogs, how to collaborate effectively on development work, and how to track progress with burdown and burn-up charts. They learn the five cycles of planning, including Product Visions and Roadmaps, as well as Release and Sprint planning. Finally, they also learn how to plan and synchronize the work of multiple teams on large, complex projects.
Students benefit from the focus on practicality, because they learn the concrete practices of real-world Scrum projects. The frequent discussion periods provide ample time to address students' specific needs, and issues that arise in their particular organizations.
Enterprise Agile Development with Scrum is the class to take for anyone who wants to know how Scrum is really done.
cPrime conducts short Lunch and Learn sessions for clients who wish to learn about the basics and impacts of agile processes.
Our Introduction to Scrum is an interactive presentation that explains the drivers, benefits, and practices of a Scrum process. It also provides guidance about when to use Scrum, and when to use other processes.
The presentation covers the three Scrum Roles, the three Scrum artifacts, and the five Scrum time-boxes. It is intended for any audience that wants to know what Scrum is, how it works, and when to use it for planning and executing work. Clients should allow approximately 90 minutes for this presentation.
Our Executive Briefing on Agile Development is an interactive presentation that provides a brief overview of Scrum, along with best practices, tools, and challenges associated with the adoption of a Scrum process. It addresses organizational impact, distributed teams, agile leadership, and techniques and metrics for agile transformations, at a level appropriate for executives and managers.
The purpose of the presentation is to provide a sense for what the audience members and their organizations will experience, and need to do, when they transition to an agile Scrum process. Clients should allow approximately three hours for this presentation.
Our Lunch and Learn sessions provide tremendous value for very little investment in time. They provide an excellent introduction to the practices and issues that organizations, managers, and executives face when introducing an agile process.
