Professional Scrum With User Experience (PSU) Training

Professional Scrum With User Experience (PSU) Training is a 2-day hands-on course where students with some Scrum experience will learn how to integrate modern UX practices.

Course Summary

Professional Scrum With User Experience (PSU) Training is a 2-day hands-on course where students with some Scrum experience will learn how to integrate modern UX practices, (UX is more than UI) into the way they are working in Scrum and how to work most effectively within Scrum Teams. Design work can sometimes feel slow, and not well suited to quick agile cadences and Scrum events, but that isn’t the case. Learn UX techniques that fit beautifully into Scrum, and practice these techniques with cross-functional teams in class.

Over the 2 days, students will learn UX techniques that work most effectively with Scrum Teams. In addition, you will learn practical tools and practices to best work with customers and their feedback to deliver higher value in the customer’s eyes with Scrum Teams without changing Scrum.
