Abstract

In collaboration with industrial partners, students will apply Scrum in practice and reason about its application in an environment as realistic as possible.


Description

The goal of this course is to learn to apply agile in practice, especially Scrum.  This is achieved through practical work as a Scrum Master of a software development group executing a software project in collaboration with an industrial partner.

Synergy with other electives.  In the semester, you will be able to integrate the learnings by also taking the "Digital Transformation and Change" course, which provides you with a toolbox of theories and practical perspectives that can be helpful and applied in practise in the project in the "Industrial Scrum Master Training" course.

  • You are able to apply some programming language to construct fully functional software programs
  • You know the basics of software engineering, e.g., different software process models and related activities
  • You know the basics of agile methods, especially Scrum.
