This two-day Certified Scrum Master course provides a look into the what, how and especially the whys of Scrum. It'll cover the theory and history of Scrum and also the practical side, mostly by stories by the trainer and discussions in the group. The course is useful for anyone who would like to know Scrum in depth, including team members, product owners, scrum masters and other stakeholders. Though the course will be given mostly from the Scrum masters perspective.
The course length is 2 days. The first day will cover the conceptual backgrounds of Scrum and how the roles in Scrum differ from what is often seen in organizations and how this will impact the organization. The second day will cover the how-to-do things and look in detail in the different parts of the Scrum framework.
Basic knowledge of Scrum is expected and some experience preferred. Before the CSM, we recommend reading the book Agile Project Management with Scrum by Ken Schwaber (ISBN: 073561993X). A great introduction to Scrum is the Scrum Primer by Pete Deemer at http://www.scrumprimer.com/
This course is held in Finnish.
All CSM courses are taught by Certified Scrum Trainers. 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.
