This course will help leaders who work directly with agile teams understand how to best support, guide, and coach their teams to improve their agile capabilities. The course is directed toward helping you pass the Scrum.org PAL-I Exam.
The training provides a foundation for the role that leaders play in creating the conditions for a successful agile transformation. Leaders and managers are critical enablers in helping their organisations be successful, yet the role of leaders and managers in an agile organisation can be quite different from what they are used to.
This course uses a combination of instruction and team-based exercises to help participants learn how to form and support agile teams to achieve better results, and how to lead the cultural and behavioural changes that organisations must make to reap the benefits of an agile product delivery approach.
You will understand where and how agility can help your organisation improve, by addressing challenges you can solve in no other way. You will also understand how agile teams work and what you, as a manager or leader, can do to help them to improve. You will also be able to quantify the benefits of improving the agility of your organisation through concrete measures.
Areas of Focus

This course will help people that work or are transitioning to an agile environment understand the core concepts of the Scrum Framework. Learn the roles, artifacts and rules of Scrum through an accelerated in-class group simulation.
Scrum is a lightweight, iterative and incremental Agile framework for managing complex work. A key aspect of Scrum is the recognition that customers will change their minds about what they want or need (often called requirements volatility) and that there will be unpredictable challenges—for which a predictive or planned approach is not suited.
As such, Scrum adopts an evidence-based empirical approach — accepting that the problem cannot be fully understood or defined up front, and instead focusing on how to maximise the team’s ability to deliver quickly, to respond to emerging requirements, and to adapt to evolving technologies and changes in market conditions.
