    Agile Pain Relief presents Certified ScrumMaster with Practical Exercises.
    Certified Scrum Trainer Mark Levison will lead an intensive, two-day course which introduces and familiarizes you with core ScrumMaster concepts of Scrum and Scrum methods through a mix of direct instruction and hands-on activities.

    "The best two days of training I ever had." —Sridhar

    "A perfect insight into the Agile world." —Smita

    Overview

    In this two day course you will be introduced to Scrum concepts through a series of exercises employing Scrum methods to build a new application. During the process, you will be exposed to and practice Scrum using practical, real-world examples, learn how Scrum works, and experience the dynamics of participating as part of Scrum team.

    In addition to the exercises, the course itself is conducted using a Scrum-like process to provide insight into Scrum concepts and familiarize students with Scrum processes. Practical examples demonstrate how to handle changing requirements and using Scrum to manage product backlog, estimates, and even acceptance criteria.

    Finally this is one of the few CSM courses where the neuroscience and psychology of teams is discussed as applied to managing Scrum and building effective teams.

  • Who Should Attend

    This course is for people interested in creating high performance development teams or participating in them. I've had attendees from Developer, QA, Development Manager, Director of Engineering and even a Marketing VP who wanted to know afterwards how to apply these ideas to marketing. This course is for anyone who wants to have a deep understanding of Scrum and understand how high performance teams work.
