This course explores Scrum, an Agile framework for developing, delivering, and sustaining complex products. In 11 videos, learners will examine the importance of the Scrum product with the Scrum framework. You will examine what a product is, how it differs from a project, and how the Scrum framework is used for product development. You will then examine the three defined roles in Scrum: the product owner, the Scrum master, and the Scrum team. This course examines responsibilities of the product owner, how the owner defines product direction, and guides the team through the development process. You will learn that the role of the Scrum master is to keep the team on track following the Scrum framework, and to ensure that meetings are scheduled, and time-boxed. You will learn that a Scrum team is a cross-functional, multidisciplinary, self-governing team, who together have the skill sets required to deliver a sprint. Finally, you will learn how to define the product by using affinity groupings, dot voting techniques, open-ended questions, and the Fist of Five method.
