    Scrum is an agile framework for completing complex projects. Scrum originally was formalized for software development projects, but works well for any complex, innovative scope of work. The possibilities are endless. Scrum is an iterative, incremental framework for project management often seen in agile software development, a type of software engineering. 

    Although the Scrum approach was originally suggested for managing product development projects, its use has focused on the management of software development projects, and it can be used to run software maintenance teams or as a general project/program management approach.

    Our two-day Certified Scrum Master training course (Certification is provided by Scrum Alliance) provides a comprehensive and in-depth training in Scrum theory and practice, taught by a Scrum Alliance Certified Scrum Trainer. This "learning by doing" style of instruction demands your open mind and active participation.

    Participants can also claim up to 16 PDU's or Contact Hours with the PMI. These PDUs can also apply towards your 21 contact hour requirement for your Agile Certified Practitioner (PMI-ACP) status. 

    "Kiran delivered an excellent training class, it was very engaging, really practical with well thought out breakout group sessions. His knowledge of real world Scrum projects was very helpful, and his experience produced great answers to the hard questions brought up in class. It was a pleasure having him as a CST and after having experienced his vast knowledge on Scrum methodologies, I would recommend him and his services any time." - IT CIO

    Kiran Thakkar's experience is hard to match: he played an instrumental role in one of the largest agile/scrum implementations in the world at Siemens Medical Solutions with over 40 teams 500 members. His combination of business and agile experience brings superior insight and understanding to every class.

    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.
