The highly interactive course investigates the Scrum framework in detail from theory and foundations to practical application and pitfalls, covering all the team roles, activities, and artefacts, so that you can be an effective Scrum Master or member of a Scrum team.
The Scrum framework consists of Scrum Teams and their associated roles, events, artefacts, and rules. Each component within the framework serves a specific purpose and is essential to Scrum’s success and usage. The rules of Scrum bind together the roles, events, and artefacts, governing the relationships and interaction between them. The rules of Scrum are described throughout the body of this document.
