    Agile project management differs fundamentally from conventional project management. Rather than plan, instruct, and direct, the ScrumMaster facilitates, coaches and leads. This two-day hands-on course enables the participants to apply Scrum productively and teaches the delegates to be effective ScrumMasters.

    Objective

    This hands-on, interactive class enables the course delegates to apply Scrum effectively:

    • Assume the responsibilites of a ScrumMaster
    • Remove the barriers between development and the customer so that the customer/Product Owner directly drives development
    • Maximize value creation and customer satisfaction through Scrum
    • Improve employee satisfaction
    • Improve the engineering practices and tools so each increment of functionality is potentially shippable

    Additionally, upon successful completion of the course, each participant is enrolled as a Certified ScrumMaster, which includes a one-year membership in the Scrum Alliance, where additional ScrumMaster-only material and information is available.

    Audience

    Project managers, team leads, and IT/development managers interested in successfully introducing Scrum into their organizations, as well as, product managers, business analysts, architects and developers interested in applying Scrum. 

    Prerequisites

    Before the course, students are required to read Agile Project Management with SCRUM by Ken Schwaber or Agile Software Development with SCRUM by Mike Beedle and Ken Schwaber. Participants will also benefit from having watched Ken Schwaber talking about Scrum and from reading the messages posted at the Scrum Yahoo! discussion group prior to the course:
