Scaled Professional Scrum (SPS) Course
Scaled Professional Scrum (SPS) with the Nexus Framework is a 2-day course designed as a workshop for anyone involved in building software products with multiple teams.
The Nexus Framework is a light-weight, open-source layer on top of Scrum that manages dependencies when many Scrum Teams are working on the same product.
The Scaled Professional Scrum class teaches the Nexus framework and provides a multitude of complementary practices that are effective when three to nine Scrum Teams are building a single product. This course is not about portfolio management or project management but about approaching product development from an agile mindset. Nexus+ is also covered – a way to enables larger-scale development with over nine teams.
The SPS course is delivered with an end-to-end case study where you’ll work together with other students to apply the Nexus Framework. You’ll also learn the challenges in large-scale development initiatives and solutions solving those challenges.
What You’ll Learn
The Product Owner’s role is multifaceted, requiring the practitioner to engage in behaviors and adopt mindsets beyond the core of Agility and the Scrum Framework. This course surfaces these behaviors by challenging the student to adopt several different Product Owner stances:
Customer Representative – focused on understanding customer problems, challenges and potential opportunities
Visionary – communicating the vision, future state and possibilities in ways that foster common understanding
Experimenter – focusing on innovation, hypothesis testing and validating potential value to spark product innovation
Influencer – communicating with and influencing stakeholders, customers and the Scrum Team to act with common purpose
Collaborator – seeking input, ideas and feedback from others
Decision Maker – focusing on creating maximum impact by making clear choices and decisions
Over the 2 days, students will learn about areas critical to growing as a successful Product Owner and through a series of exercises combined with instruction, students gain a better understanding of what it means to deliver value and how to express that value inside and outside of the organization.
