The Scrum Development Team – Essentials course is a 2-day course designed to support Development Team members in their professional development. This concept course is developed for Development Team members by Scrum Facilitators in collaboration with Scrum.org. The Scrum Development Team – Essentials is an essential course to help you explore the attitude, behaviour, and mindset to become a professional member of the Development Team and a change influencer.
Become a successful Development Team member
Understand the principles and values of Scrum
Explore key patterns of becoming a great Development Team member
Support SM, PO and the organizations
Over the two days, you will explore areas that are critical to growing as a successful Development Team member. Knowing Scrum is not the same as understanding it. That is why we will be deep-diving into the framework and explore the values and principles to start living Scrum. This approach is vital as the remaining topics will be focussing on mindset, attitude and behaviour. Not only inwards, but also towards others such as other Development Team members, Scrum Master, Product Owner and everyone outside the team. It is not only the Scrum Master, but everyone can help change the environment of Scrum Teams, creating an environment for agility to thrive.
This is the course where everything comes together. Scrum, people, flow, leadership, mindset, coaching and lessons learned. Together we will be exploring the key patterns of becoming a great Development Team member.
