Today’s market is increasingly more competitive, as new products come on a daily basis, and entire industries get thrown upside down by innovators. Companies today cannot afford to ideate, research, and develop a new product over a long time. The risk is that by the time the product is ready for launch, someone nimbler, faster, more agile, who is able to identify an opportunity and quickly bring a solution to life, has already taken the top spot in the market.

Taught by a Certified Scrum Trainer (CST), this class takes participants through a series of interactive workshops where they can learn and apply first-hand the principles of Scrum.
