Whether your team needs a flawless Scrum launch or needs to reboot a struggling Scrum implementation, this course lays the foundation for an effective Scrum team. Professional Scrum Foundations also provides the foundations of knowledge needed for role-focused training such as Professional Scrum Product Owner and Professional Scrum Master.
