    This Certified ScrumMaster course is a 2-day intensive introduction to the Scrum framework detailing how Scrum and related agile practices are applied by Scrum teams to rapidly deliver potentially shippable products in frequent, time-boxed iterations.  The course uses a combination of lecture and experiential learning to instill a practical understanding of Scrum focusing on the activities the ScrumMaster, Team and Product Owner perform while delivering to their commitments and aspiring to achieve hyper-productivity.

     

    The course covers the core concepts of Scrum teams and teamwork and the Scrum framework including: roles, activities, and artifacts that are applied to realize product requirements and project delivery; the ScrumMaster role including responsibilities and behavioral characteristics; the Product Owner role, including key responsibilities; and the role of a self-organizing, cross-functional team as the primary organizational unit through which the product is developed and delivered. The Scrum framework will be applied in a mini-project simulation, as well as used in various activities which will be used as checkpoints throughout the class to assure effective understanding of the principles covered.

     

    The course is delivered by 2 experienced agile consultants.  Vernon Stinebaker, the primary trainer and CST has over 20 years experience in the IT industry and currently holds a senior technical and managerial position in a NASDAQ listed software company.  Bill Li, the supporting trainer and Managing Principal of UPerform Consulting Group, has over 16 years of domestic and oversea IT experience and is the Chinese translator and co-translator of 3 Scrum books written by Ken Schwaber and Mike Cohn.  Both bring significant practical experience in agile and traditional project delivery including PMBOK based methodology and CMMI. This course is delivered in either Chinese or English depending on the profile of course participants.  Both trainers speak fluent Chinese and English.
