That is why this 2-day certification course prepares you for a solid and successful implementation of Scrum in your team or organization. You will learn the Scrum framework and understand how all elements fit together into one of the most powerful project management tools around.
We will discuss and practice the principles of Agile, Lean and Scrum that are vital in implementing Scrum in your specific context. By also exploring typical pitfalls and proven implementation approaches, your chances of successfully implementing Scrum are maximized by this course.

What participants say about this course
"The great thing about this course is that it is highly experimental and that you learn Scrum by doing it yourself."
Pascal B. (Project Manager)
"Jef is a great trainer. I really enjoyed the interactive way in which he introduced our development team to the concepts and practice of Scrum. Jef made us experience the excitement, energy and focus that Scrum can unleash and I highly recommend his training to anyone looking for a better understanding of Scrum."
Wim F. (Director Software Engineering)
"Great course with a great instructor!"
Luc D. (ScrumMaster)
"I'd blindly recommend Jef for any Agile or Lean training or coaching need you might have. Looking forward to working with him again in the future!"
Tom V.B. (Project Manager)
"We hired Jef for a 2-day training on Scrum for our entire management team. This training both convinced and armed us for implementing Scrum and Agile in our department.
Before the training, a lot of us were really skeptical on Scrum and Agile. But Jef's clear explanations and pragmatic approach of the training, made all of us change our minds. Some of the most skeptical people are now among the strong believers, leading the Scrum implementation. It is due to Jef that this change was possible. And we will definitely ask him to continue supporting us in further implementing Scrum!"
Marc V.B. (Manager Application Architecture)
"Great fun and serious business. Jef impersonates agile. Very inspiring!"
Dagmar O. (Functional Analyst)
"Jef did not only teach our team the Scrum framework, he above all created true understanding of the principles and advantages of the Scrum approach. By mixing theory and game elements, and by his dynamic training approach that is seeking the participants' contribution, Jef made the entire team think about organizing our projects more effectively.
I absolutely recommend this course to teams looking for higher effectiveness, more flexibility and especially increased involvement!"
Peter S. (Manager Digital Development)
"Jef's way of training Scrum made it exciting and focused. Much better than simply showing 100 slides and have all participants falling asleep. It was also great putting all theory immediately in practice in the exercises and getting immediate feedback of Jef.
I also really appreciate that Jef sent us a lot of pictures of the flip charts and exercises. I've never seen this before.
I'm looking forward to start using Scrum in our organization en learn even more about it. Jef's training was really successful and convinced me of the power of Scrum."
Tom V. (Project Manage and Team Coordinator)

Taking a CSM course, passing the CSM test, and accepting the license agreement designates you as a Certified ScrumMaster, which indicates that you have been introduced to and understand the basic concepts you need to perform as a ScrumMaster or team member on a Scrum team. This course also satisfies two elements of the CSD track: Scrum Introduction and Elective.
