Course Description

This 12-video course explores team velocity in Scrum, its purpose, benefits, and implementation. You will learn that team velocity, or velocity, is a metric used to accurately measure the amount of work a Scrum team can perform during a sprint. Learners will explore several descriptions of team velocity. You will examine velocity advantages, including how it helps set realistic expectations, how it explains the process, and how it can limit the amount of work agreed to in future iterations. Next, learners will examine how user stories describe functionality, and how to use story points as a basic unit of measure for velocity. Learn about the pivotal role of the Scrum master, who provides service to the product owner, organization, and development team. You will learn how to identify common metrics, and how velocity burndown charts are created and managed in JIRA. You will examine team velocity best practices. Finally, this course uses case studies to demonstrate how to present Scrum to a client.
