Overview

Courses Benefits

Traditional software development can be a cumbersome process, dominated by uncertainty and risk. Agile and Scrum methods address this problem by promoting open collaboration and adaptability throughout the project life cycle. These methods focus on developing value-added software in short amounts of time. In this course, you learn how to apply Agile and Scrum techniques to manage software development projects. This training will help you prepare for the Professional Scrum Master (PSM) certification.
