Scaled Professional Scrum

The Scaled Professional Scrum (SPS) course is a 2-day workshop that simulates a large software development project using the Nexus Framework. Through this hands-on case study, you will learn over 40 practices to reduce complexity and dependencies at scale. You will leave with the knowledge and tools necessary to scale Scrum to deliver an Integrated Increment every Sprint.

This experience will help you understand the techniques, philosophies, and challenges that Ken Schwaber and Scrum.org have learned through years of formulating and coaching Scrum projects in enterprises.

SPS is targeted at development leads and managers and anyone else involved in formulating, participating or managing scaled Scrum product development. Organizations are encouraged to send a team of people that will be (or already are) running large Scrum initiatives.

It is especially oriented to those who:

  • Already are effectively running small Scrum projects
  • Want to apply multiple Scrum teams to develop a large system or product
  • Managing scaled projects
  • Struggling with scaled projects Scrum.org selects only the most qualified instructors to deliver this course. Scrum.org maintains the defined curriculum and materials to assure consistency and quality for delegates worldwide.
