Scaled Professional Scrum with Nexus (SPS) Course

Scaled Professional Scrum™ with Nexus (SPS) Course Overview

The Scaled Professional Scrum (SPS) with Nexus course is a 2-day course that is interestingly designed as an experiential workshop where students learn how to scale Scrum using the Nexus Framework.

Throughout the scaled Scrum course, you are introduced to the artifacts and events within the Nexus (scaled Scrum) framework, as well as the additional (to team-level Scrum) Nexus Integration Team role, as well as more than 50 associated scaled Scrum practices.

The cutting-edge course gives trainees an understanding of how to launch, structure, staff, and manage a large Agile project using Scrum. Throughout the course, students will learn the infrastructure, tools and practices needed to successfully scale Scrum to maximize the value of their software development initiative.

Over the 2 days of the Nexus course, students will simulate a large software development project using the Nexus Framework. The SPS course is delivered using an end-to-end case study where trainees work together to organize and simulate a scaled software development project. Throughout the SPS course, trainees will be introduced to more than 50 practices (for information, you can find many of the Nexus practices here) that can be used to help reduce complexity and dependencies when executing a scaled Scrum.

The Nexus course also includes two free attempts at the globally recognized Scaled Professional Scrum certification exam.
