Certified Scrum Developer


Agile teams maximise value to their customers and users through the regular and frequent delivery of valuable, high quality product features. Agile teams build a regular cadence of delivery in short time frames, typically between 1 and 4 weeks for each delivery of a new product increment to their customers and users.

To successfully deliver high quality product increments in a consistent and repeatable way, teams need to adopt appropriate software engineering practices. Without these practices the cost of change will increase exponentially over time and at the same time, the confidence the team have to make changes will decrease.

The Agile Software Development Immersion course provides experiential learning through the use of stimulating hands-on practical exercises and in-depth discussions of a variety of symbiotic technical practices that will enable agile teams to improve the quality of the software they deliver whilst also enabling them to maximise their performace, allowing them to delight the customers and users. On completing the course, attendees will know not only how to use these practices effectively but also how to implement them both for development of new products and also on existing products.

Attendees who are already a Certified Scrum Master will qualify immediately to become a Certified Scrum Developer, optionally attendees can attend a further two days of training in order to attain the Certified Scrum Developer qualification.
