    Purpose of the Course

    To give individuals a set of tools and techniques to aid them in becoming effective Scrum Masters, help teams become high performing, and deal with the change management associated with implementing Scrum in their organization.  This is your opportunity to learn about Scrum, in the real world, from an industry expert. Come prepared to challenge old beliefs and be open to new ways of thinking about how you approach work in the future -- and have a bit of fun in the process (smile).

    Objectives

    At the successful completion of the workshop, you will be certified as a ScrumMaster and have an understanding of how the various roles and responsibilities can be applied in the real world to your current and future projects. You will receive a one year membership to the Scrum Alliance and have a solid understanding of the basics of Scrum and how it can be applied to Real World projects.

    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.
