Scaled Professional Scrum with Nexus

DevOps Scrum Agile People

The Scaled Professional Scrum (SPS) with Nexus Workshop is a 2-day course that teaches anyone involved with formulating, managing, and participating in scaled Scrum product development. Students use a hands-on case study to learn about Nexus and over 50 practices to reduce dependencies at scale.

This workshop is especially oriented to those who are already using Scrum and want to scale to multiple Scrum teams. The workshop also applies to those who are currently working in large scale projects and want to increase success.

The experience will help you understand techniques, philosophies, and challenges that Ken Schwaber and the community have learned through years of formulating and coaching Scrum projects in enterprises.

Through a hands-on case study, you will learn about Nexus and over 50 practices to reduce complexity and dependencies at scale. You will leave with the knowledge and tools necessary to deliver an Integrated Increment every Sprint at scale.
