What does the Agile and Scrum for non-IT training entail?

Scrum is the most popular and common Agile way of working based on the Lean method from Toyota. This framework was conceived by Jeff Sutherland and Ken Schwaber for software development and has been used increasingly since 1995. At Scrum, the emphasis is on communication with the customer, teamwork and stakeholders. Scrum is suitable for both IT and non-IT departments. In fact, an organization achieves more with Agile when all major departments that contribute to the value creation chain work according to Agile! According to the research company Standish Group, almost 80% of organizations in Europe are still working on Agile-Scrum or are planning to use Agile and Scrum in the short term.

During this training, the essence and principles of Agile and Scrum are discussed. Then, all roles and the method used within Scrum are discussed. In this way, you’ll learn how this innovative way of thinking and working can be used directly in your work area.
