This ScrumMaster certification course provides everything you need to get started with Scrum . The largest and fastest-growing Agile project management methodology, Scrum is a simple framework that has a small set of interrelated practices and rules, is not overly prescriptive and enables more effective teams almost immediately.
This course shares industry-tested practices for evolving Product Backlogs, planning your Releases and Sprints, tracking and reporting progress, and developing continuous improvement cycles. Participants will learn how to effectively plan and run daily Scrum Meetings, Sprint Planning Meetings, Sprint Reviews, Retrospectives, and more.
Upon completion of the course and a post-course online evaluation, participants are registered as Certified ScrumMasters (CSMs). Registration includes a two-year membership in the Scrum Alliance, (www.scrumalliance.org) where valuable ScrumMaster material and information are available.
Besides Scrum education, this course has a bigger purpose of changing the world, and connecting and inspiring others to do the same. 10% of class proceeds will be donated to a charity highlighted during the class.
