Are you living that project now? Imagine what it would be like if every project were one of your best? What would that be like?

Scrum is a simple team-based framework for solving complex problems (like software development). This course teaches you the mindset and the practices to make that vision a reality: That this project can be your best project ever!

You get an intense, personal training with much opportunity to work with the trainer and in small groups. This course is usually held in German but will be held English if there is no consensus among the participants for German or French.
