    Taught by two globally respected Scrum leaders
    This class is taught by Pete Deemer and Gabrielle Benefield, co-authors of The Scrum Primer, one of the most widely read introductions to Agile development, as well as The Distributed Scrum Primer, a guide to multi-location Scrum. Pete is CEO of GoodAgile and serves as Chair of the Certification Committee of the Board of Directors of the Scrum Alliance, which provides the globally-recognized Certified ScrumMaster certification. He has provided Agile training and consulting to some of the largest companies in the world, including HP, Microsoft, SAP, Oracle, Cisco, Dell, GE, EMC, Fidelity, JP Morgan, Verizon, Philips, Walmart, and Target. Gabrielle is an author, speaker and advisor specialising in Agile and Lean organisational transformation with an emphasis on product strategy and innovation. She is the founder of Evolve Beyond, a global consultancy headquartered in London working with diverse industries including finance, telecommunications, energy and gaming. Gabrielle is the creator of HotHousing, a collaborative method used by many startups and large organisations to rapidly develop products from concept to first release.

    Our students love the training!
    97% of our students say "the GoodAgile CSM class was worth the time and money - even aside from the value of the certification". And 98% said they were likely to recommend it to a friend or colleague! We get comments like this one from Ashok Rai all the time: "This was the best training I have ever attended. Pete, you rock!".

    Real-world knowledge you need to succeed
    The course is about using Scrum to deliver powerful results and success with real-world projects, especially challenging ones! Gabrielle and Pete have extensive experience introducing Scrum into large organizations, and using Scrum for fixed-date projects, distributed projects, and new product development, as well as Scrum in a services/contract software development environment and Scrum in internal IT organizations. This class isn't about theory -- it's about using Scrum to get great results in the real world.

    Lowest price guarantee!
    The cost of the class is £995, and we offer group discounts. We believe our prices are the best available, but if you can find a lower price for a CSM course in the same city, we guarantee to match it. (Details here.)

    If you are not 100% satisfied with the course, it's free!
    If you are not fully satisfied with the course, we will refund 100% of what you paid. (Details here.)

    Includes Mike Cohn's book "Succeeding with Agile"
    All attendees at our public CSM courses receive a complimentary copy of Mike Cohn's Succeeding with Agile Development Using Scrum. This book, priced at £30, is widely considered the best all-around guide to Agile and Scrum.

    You get two Scrum minibooks by Pete Deemer
    Every attendee also receives two high-quality, bound Scrum minibooks by Pete Deemer: The Distributed Scrum Primer (an in-depth guide to distributed development using Scrum) and The Manager and Scrum (a guide for managers and executives leading organizations that use Scrum).

    You get full online access to class materials + exercises + useful resources... forever!
    Unlike many classes, we provide full electronic access to the course materials, which you can use to train your colleagues. You get the course slides, plus many of the exercises, along with step-by-step instructions for leading them. Plus you get access to a variety of useful Scrum resources and templates. And your access is valid forever - so as new materials are added, you will get access to those as well.

    You earn 15 PDU's from PMI, towards PMP or PMI Agile Certification
    Our CSM course includes 15 contact hours of training, which can be submitted to PMI for PDU credit if you are a PMP or working towards PMI Agile Certification.

    Last but not least... you get Planning Poker cards!
    Every attendee gets two packs of high-quality Planning Poker cards, enough for a team of 8 people. Our cards include printed instructions for use and four colors per deck.

    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.
