Group of participants
You are an employee of a technical profession or work in the engineering sector at related departments.

The development of modern technical products increasingly requires the cooperation of specialists from different disciplines. At the same time, worldwide competition in globalized markets demands a dynamic and equally high-quality development process. In order to meet these requirements, Scrum offers an agile process model that supports the necessary flexibility and speed.

The two-day course will be taught via theory blocks, practical case studies and team simulations. The theoretical parts explain the basic features of Scrum, which are then directly implemented and deepened in the practical part. The course will be rounded off by the moderated simulation of a comprehensive new product development on the second day.
