Not Your Grandma's Scrum Class
Who wants to snooze through 14 hours of PowerPoint?
Not all Certified ScrumMaster courses are created equal. With Agile Learning Labs, you will participate in project simulations and game-based learning exercises, so you can learn by doing.
Chris Sims is famous for his unique style of teaching through innovative games and simulations--in fact, the entire class is run using the tools and techniques you'll be studying, so you'll have completed an actual scrum project by the time you graduate. You'll also come away with a list of "Aha!" moments as long as your arm, all of which will be things you discovered yourself, while actually doing scrum.
Every student takes home a copy of Chris' book, The Elements of Scrum, which is used as a textbook in colleges and by other scrum trainers. You can read the first chapter, A Week In The Life of a Scrum Team online, or check out the five-star reviews on Amazon.
