Scrum TnT (Tools & Techniques)

 

A lot of companies are doing Scrum but since Scrum is a framework, it gives you a lot of freedom, hence the feelings are that they are not getting all the benefits out of it, not to say the promised results and boost in efficiency.

In addition to the open Q&A session, the students will be taught all kind of tools and techniques that will fit exactly to their needs.
