    You already know the basics of Scrum and are now ready to take the next steps? You are curious about how Scrum can really help you and your teams to become more productive? Why it works and why many teams have been able to provide significantly more functionality with improved quality? Then this training is right for you! Here you will learn the secrets of successful teams, the best practices and the latest developments around Scrum. In this training, we will focus particularly on the role and responsibilities of the Scrum Master, who is significantly participating and often the decisive weight for success ... 

    About this training

    Within these two days you will get to know Scrum from a different point of view. Our workshop differs massively from classical classroom lectures as we hardly ever use any slides. We rather make use of the latest techniques in brain research to impart knowledge: Most of the time we work interactively in small groups to learn and to practice the concepts. We will discuss and hear about real life stories and practical examples, and also acquire knowledge by doing exercises in groups and contrasting the results. You will deepen your knowledge about Scrum with the assistance of an experienced Scrum trainer.

    Additionally, this training provides the basis for the CSM-Certification at the ScrumAlliance. It is, however, important to mention that the participation in this training requires basic knowledge of Scrum.

    Goals

    The main objective of this training is to develop a deeper understanding of Scrum and the duties of the Scrum Master and to prepare you for the everyday life as Scrum Master and the reality of introducing Scrum in your organisation. Secondary objective is to prepare you for the certification exam! Through the interactive and workshop-like training style we create enough space to address individual problems and questions. The training is also a forum to discuss issues with an experienced trainer and coach.

    In this class you will learn how to use Scrum successfully. You will get a deep knowledge of the principles and functions of the Scrum framework and recognize the true nature of Scrum as a framework for controlling complex processes like software development. You will learn how successful teams deliver working products through transparency, continuous inspection and adaptation and self-organization. You will understand the particular duties and responsibilities of the Scrum Master and receive the necessary basic knowledge to use Scrum in your environment. The course also aims at good practices in the implementation of Scrum. It shows the preconditions and changes that are necessary in your business to successfully enable agile approaches and Scrum.

    You will leave this class with a bunch of new ideas and maybe a different mindset. And this is our goal. With Scrum, we leave for a journey into a new world. A journey of learning, reflexion and change. Our experienced trainers and coaches love to accompany you on your journey and are of course available for your questions also after the course.

    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.

    Notes

    Why should you attend Objectbay's CSM training - what is our USP?

    We have experience with agile software development since the time the agile manifesto was written and even before the term "agile" was defined. And we bring the experience of over 50 projects on which we helped to introduce Scrum and agile engineering practices and in addition consulted an Agile Enterprise transition. Andreas Wintersteiger is one of the most experienced Scrum trainer/coach/consultant in the world. So if you are looking for sharing experiences, we might be your partner, if you are only looking for certificates you might want to check out cheaper classes on Scrum - we do not compete on price!!

    We can provide you with lots of first hand experience with agile software development and Scrum because we do it on our own! You will not learn theoretical book knowledge, but instead benefit from the longtime experience of our trainers. We have no standard program, we deal with the individual questions and situations of our participants and also help them by finding answers for their questions after the training. That is why we limit the number of delegates!

    We were one of the very first companies who started off in Europe offering public trainings on Scrum, XP and agile software development and have professional training experience of more than ten years, in which we continuously improved and still keep improving our trainings and our training style. Additionally, we keep developing our training methods, supported by internationally recognized specialists like Sharon Bowman.

    Certification

    After attending this training you are qualified for taking the Scrum Alliance's online certification exam. The training price already includes the price for the Scrum Alliance membership and two examination attempts.

    Directly after the training you will be registered at the Scrum Alliance and then have 90 days left for taking the online exam. You will have to answer 35 multiple-choice questions. The “Score” for passing the exam is having 25 correct answers.

    By passing the test you will officially be a "Certified Scrum Master" for the next two years. For re-certification, you will not have to attend another training. However, full attendance and participation during the training is a precondition.
