Course Description

This course will help you to get the most out of Scrum and UX

 Struggling with Scrum and UX?

  • UI designs change too often.
  • We deliver products but customers don’t use them.
  • We can’t plan and integrate effectively the work of designers and developers.
  • Sprints are mechanical and not very creative. Many «what» and «why» decissions have been already made.

 Then this course is for you!

  • Discover how to integrate indeed Scrum and UX.
  • Learn how to deliver successful products earlier to customers, meeting their needs and expectations.
  • Experience a totally practical course, and full of teamwork.
  • Join a cross-skilled team with UX Designers, Scrum Masters, Product Owners, Engineers and Managers.

This course was co-developed with bestseller Lean UX authors and their Professional Scrum Trainers worked together with Jeff Gothelf and Joshua Seiden, Lean UX book authors, to create this course, leveraging their experience and knowledge.

Lean UX is a reference work in the field of user-centered digital product development.

ITNOVE worked together with Jeff Gothelf to organize the all the PSU courses in Spain so far.
