Who should attend the Introduction to Agile Scrum?

This course is for participants that are new to the Agile world, but want a good overview of it to decide how to begin and leverage agile principles in their teams and projects.  

This is an introductory 101 course, which means no specific pre-requisites, background, or prior experience are needed.  A background in software development would certainly help, but is not required.

This course is not specifically geared to obtaining certification.
