About the course:
This course focuses on how the Scrum Framework employs the values and principles of the Agile Manifesto, including the following learning objectives:
- Learn the core principles of self-organizing and empowering Scrum Teams
- Understand the key considerations to ensuring a Scrum team is creative and productive and focused on business value
