SCRUM Workshop - VDI

The international VDI workshop “SCRUM – A Modern Way of Managing Projects” will teach you how to implement this innovative management and control process into your business. Cut through complexity and learn about the values, principles and psychology that are integral to Scrum and how they can make your business more agile, flexible and efficient.

Scrum makes sense

Scrum is an innovative, modern framework for effective team collaboration for complex products. In this two-day workshop, you will be presented with an overview of the key concepts behind Scrum and will learn about the language, team roles and processes that go with it.

Starting with product vision and ending with a potential finished product, you will experience the steps and methods of Scrum in this interactive workshop. Find out about the theory and the practice by working with your experienced trainer and gain insights into how Scrum can benefit your business with individual consultations.

Learn about the variety of leadership roles in Scrum, how self-organization can help you and how the psychology in meeting structures works. You’ll also see how to overcome the challenge of using Scrum at scale and how Agile can be incorporated into an organization. There will be a challenging quiz at the end of the workshop where you can put your new skills and knowledge to the test.

In a series of agile exercises and discussions in small groups, the international VDI workshop “SCRUM – A Modern Way of Managing Projects” will show you how to make the most of this method for the success of your Business.
