Once the basic principles and aspects are in place, we will take a closer look at the Scrum process from A to Z, what it takes to carry out a process, what comes out of the process, what tools / techniques can be used, etc. Finally we will take a closer look at how the role of Scrum masters will be as part of a program with many teams eg Scrum of Scrums.
