Hey there, and welcome to the QA Facilitating Purposeful Agile Meetings course. As a scrum master, you need to be able to get the most out of the different scrum events you'll be facilitating. To do this, you'll need to work closely with your scrum team, learn, and adapt. This course will help you to maximize the value of the different scrum events you own.
At the end of this course, you'll be able to understand and facilitate all scrum events, define what the definition of done is for you and your team, describe the difference between capacity and velocity and how you can use these concepts, support your product owner with product backlog refinement, and, finally, work with multiple development teams at once.
The course has three modules. The first module starts off with a recap of all the scrum events and the different rules everyone in the scrum team takes on. After this, you'll learn more about how to facilitate the daily scrum, ending with some advice on best practice. The second module starts off recapping sprint planning. With this in place, we'll move into a few important and powerful concepts, looking closely at the definition of done, velocity and capacity, and how to identify and remove impediments. And the final module will take a look at the sprint review and retrospective, before moving on to product backlog refinement. The module ends with a look at how far scrum can be scaled within an organization with the idea of a scrum of scrums.
Each module delivers the knowledge you need through a series of short videos. It'll take you around 40 minutes to complete them all. Alongside the videos, there's a series of short reflective activities, and you can access these in the reflective activities PDF. Activity one relates to the first video in the course, scrum events. To get the most value out of the course, we recommend that you do each activity before you watch the corresponding video. One last thing. Feedback on this course is important to us and future learners. If you've got anything to say, good or bad, let us know. Thanks, and we hope you enjoy the course.
