Applying Professional Scrum (APS)
Applying Professional Scrum (APS) is a 2-day course that teaches Scrum in a highly practical way. Working in a series of Sprints, participants build a real product while facing real-life problems. The mechanics, accountabilities, values, and empirical processes of Scrum are demonstrated by actually experiencing them. Common missteps and misunderstandings are discussed so participants grow a higher awareness of their symptoms.
