Agile & Scrum

The Agile / Scrum Project Management course is intended for project managers, clients, and teams who are considering to use Agile. Agile projects do not depend on a predefined project result and are therefore well suited to creative projects, including software projects, product development, and innovation. The course is also interesting for advanced project leaders who want to expand their knowledge and skills.

New: training day + e-learning + exam

We added an e-learning and exam module to the Agile and Scrum training. Although you will already have a good understanding of Agile after the training day and will be able to get started with it, the e-learning module will help you to deepen your knowledge about Agile.

You can also take the Scrum / Agile exam. To complete the online lessons and prepare for the exam you will need approximately 3 hours of study time. After successfully completing the exam you will receive a “Scrum master / Agile coach” certificate.

N.B. Working in the e-learning environment is not strictly necessary for a good understanding of Agile. If desired, you can limit your training only to the training day.

The cost of the training is € 575,- excluding VAT, including literature, syllabus, e-learning module access, the exam, lunch, and coffee or tea.

Agile for non-ICT projects?

Agile and Scrum originated in the world of software development. Although Agile is also being used outside this world, Agile works especially well in projects where something has to be designed and made in successive steps. This can be software, but also hardware, websites, works of art, inventions, research settings, design items, toys, new machines and the like.

Recently, initiatives have been taken to apply Agile to administrative environments or marketing and communications organizations. Although we do not rule out that Agile may offer benefits in such environments, we often see that only a limited part of the Agile tool is used in such an environment. This course deals with the entire Agile range. If you are not involved in projects where something is being developed and created, certain elements of the Agile methodology can not be applied in your organization.

During this course, you will learn how to implement an Agile project. We work with the most important Agile methods, so you will not be stuck with a particular school or stream. For example, the traditional waterfall model, Extreme Programming (XP), SCRUM, DSDM and other methods. The course program consists of the following components:

  • What is Agile? What is Scrum?
  • Agile versus traditional projects (“waterfall model”)
  • The steps in an Agile project
  • The roles and tasks in an Agile team
  • Practicing with the Agile-simulation
  • Agile streams (XP, Scrum, DSDM, and others)
  • Fitting Agile projects into an organization
  • Making an (Agile) plan
  • Monitoring the quality and speed of your Agile project
  • Disadvantages, risks and restrictions of Agile methods
  • Tools and aids for the implementation of an Agile project
  • Online Agile exam (optional)
