    ------------------

    The Certified Scrum Master Training (CSM) course consists of two days of presentation, group discussion and experiential/interactive exercises designed to effectively teach Scrum principles and practices. The lecture/powerpoint aspect of the course is kept to a minimum. The value of Scrum comes from doing it, so the class focuses on action. Upon graduation, attendees will each receive official designation as a "Certified Scrum Master", a title bestowed by the Scrum Alliance.

    What is a Scrum Master?
    The Scrum Master role is very different to a project manager. The role emphasizes facilitation, leadership and collaboration over traditional command-and-control activities. A good Scrum Master will be a process facilitator, a servant leader to the team and a change agent within the organization. As a process facilitator and servant leader the Scrum Master's role is to maximize the team’s efforts toward its goals while removing the impediments that stand in its way. As a change agent the Scrum Master is responsible for socializing Scrum at a wider level, educating customers and other stakeholders and steering the entire organization towards essential change. Being a Scrum Master is a full-time job. This course won't make you into a Scrum Master, but it will give you a deeper understanding of the role, and of Scrum in general.

    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.

  • Agenda

    Course Outline

    This two-day course teaches the principles and practices that make Scrum Masters effective facilitators and productivity enhancers. The course itself uses the principles of Scrum, where the learning outcome is driven by the needs of the participants through a combination of expert instruction and self-directed learning. Opportunities to refect and adapt the direction of the course are offered at reglar intervals. At the end of the training the participants will have the confidence and understanding to begin to socialize Scrum at their own organization and support development teams in improving their processes.
     
    Day 1
    •  The Essence of Scrum – concepts, principles and a new way of thinking
    • The Mechanics of Scrum – framework, roles, ceremonies, artifacts & flow
    • The Product Backlog – themes, epics, user stories, estimation and prioritization
    Day 2
