Martine Devos' two day ScrumMaster and Estimation class will teach you the fundamental principles of Scrum, qualifying you as a Certified ScrumMaster. Leading a Scrum team is radically different to traditional project management. Rather than plan, instruct, and direct, the leader of a Scrum team (called a ScrumMaster) facilitates, coaches and leads.
In this intensive and highly interactive workshop, you will learn to deal with the obstacles that confront Scrum teams. You will also put theory into practise through a variety of exercises and take-aways to use with co-workers.
Upon successful completion of the course, you will be enrolled as a Certified ScrumMaster. This includes a two-year Scrum Alliance membership, where additional ScrumMaster-only material and information is available.
More importantly, upon completion of this workshop you'll leave with an understanding of Scrum and how to put it into practise and succeed with it. You will be able to share your experience with your colleagues and help your teams xecute Scrum efficiently and productively.
Delegates will also receive a copy of Agile Analytics: A Value-Driven Approach to Business Intelligence and Data Warehousing during the course.
PMI members can claim up to 14 PDU's upon completion of this course.
IMPORTANT: CHANGES TO CSM CERTIFICATION
Effective 1 October 2009,the criteria for achieving Scrum Master Certification will change. As well as completing a Certified ScrumMaster course, all CSMs will also be required to pass a Certified ScrumMaster (CSM) online certification exam to maintain certification.
