Scrum Initiation course

Agile Ukraine conducts a half-day trainings on Scrum and Agile.

The training is called 'Scrum Initiation'.

Why 'initiation'?

You could as well call this an 'introduction' or a 'kick-off', we just like it to be an 'initiation'
as it calls for further actions to be performed by the trainees on their own after the course.

Learning Scrum or any other Agile practices cannot be taught as a University subject or a science. It is rather a never-ending self-educational practical curve that an IT professional should do over his/her career.
