    Regular Price: £1195

    Learn about the Scrum framework, the ScrumMaster role and experience how a Scrum project is planned and executed.  This CSM course is aimed at people relatively new to Scrum who are curious to learn more. Participants are guided through a simulation of a Scrum project (using Lego bricks) to explore what it feels like, what challenges you can expect and learn some techniques to make your application of Scrum more effective.

    What You Will Learn
    • The values and principles of agile development
    • The Scrum framework: its artefacts, rules and ceremonies
    • The roles and responsibilities in a Scrum team
    • How to plan for a multi-team, multi-sprint project
    • Tracking progress over the course of a project
    • Common challenges when introducing Scrum to an organisation

    There will be plenty of time for specific questions from attendees. After successful completion of the two day course, attendees will be put forward for the Scrum Alliance CSM exam.

    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.
