In the course Scrum Fundamentals for Beginners the essentials of the Scrum project management method are discussed and practiced. In Scrum collaboration is paramount and is essential for the success of a system.
An information system is completely built in small iterations, referred to as sprints. In contrast to traditional project management methods, Scrum responds to and takes changes into account.
In the course Scrum Fundamentals for Beginners, the different roles in a Scrum project are discussed, such as those of Product Owner, Scrum Master, the Development Team and the Manager in the background. Attention is also paid to the so-called Scrum ceremonies such as the planning and the daily meeting.
Furthermore Scrum artifacts such as the stories, the product backlog, the priorities, the estimates regarding the size and the product timeline are treated. The assignment and execution of sprints and the importance of the daily meeting are also discussed.
Finally the advantages of the Scrum approach are covered and also which pitfalls you should watch out for. In one day the participants have gone through the entire Scrum process and know how to identify the steps in the process.
The course Scrum Fundamentals is designed for employees who work in a Scrum project and others who want to experience what Scrum is.

Benefits and Pitfalls
All our courses are classroom courses in which the students are guided through the material on the basis of an experienced trainer with in-depth material knowledge. Theory is always interspersed with exercises.
We also do custom classes and then adjust the course content to your wishes. On request we will also discuss your practical cases.
The course times are from 9.30 to 16.30. But we are flexible in this. Sometimes people have to bring children to the daycare and other times are more convenient for them. In good consultation we can then agree on different course times.
We take care of the computers on which the course can be held. The software required for the course has already been installed on these computers. You do not have to bring a laptop to participate in the course. If you prefer to work on your own laptop, you can take it with you if you wish. The required software is then installed at the start of the course.
Our courses are generally given with Open Source software such as Eclipse, IntelliJ, Tomcat, Pycharm, Anaconda and Netbeans. You will receive the digital course material to take home after the course.
The course includes lunch that we use in a restaurant within walking distance of the course room.
The courses are planned at various places in the country. A course takes place at a location if at least 3 people register for that location. If there are registrations for different locations, the course will take place at our main location, Houten which is just below Utrecht. A course at our main location also takes place with 2 registrations and regularly with 1 registration. And we also do courses at the customer’s location if they appreciate that.
At the end of each course, participants are requested to evaluate the course in terms of course content, course material, trainer and location. The evaluation form can be found at https://www.klantenvertellen.nl/reviews/1039545/spiraltrain?lang=en. The evaluations of previous participants and previous courses can also be found there.
