    Course Overview

    SolutionsIQ Certified ScrumMaster Training gives you all the tools and information you need to get started with Scrum and Agile. Delivered by SolutionsIQ’s world-renowned Certified ScrumMaster Trainers, this course shares time-tested practices for managing Product Backlogs, planning your releases and iterations (Sprints), and tracking and reporting progress. You’ll learn how to lead Sprint Planning meetings, Daily Scrum meetings, Sprint Review meetings, Sprint Retrospectives, and much more. On successful course completion, participants are eligible for Certified ScrumMaster (CSM) status with the Scrum Alliance (www.scrumalliance.org). The course fee includes a one-year membership in the Scrum Alliance.

    Scrum Increases Team Productivity

    The leading and fastest-growing of the Agile methodologies, Scrum is a simple software project management framework that adheres to a small set of interrelated practices and rules, is not overly prescriptive, and is able to produce productivity gains for software development teams almost immediately. This agile, lightweight process effectively manages and controls software development through iterative, incremental practices. Scrum training will boost the capabilities of your Agile development team and positively impact projects for years to come.

    The SolutionsIQ Difference

    SolutionsIQ has proven expertise in applying Agile methodology to the development of cutting-edge software. Our Agile consulting practice grew organically out of our Agile development capability. Because Agile and Scrum are so much a part of the way SolutionsIQ operates, we have more Certified ScrumMasters and Certified Scrum Trainers than any other Agile consulting and training organization. Our Agile coaches and trainers are unique in the industry in that they continue as Agile practitioners working on client projects. Our consultants help organizations understand how to apply Agile through examples and real-world experiences, and our pragmatic approach allows participants to immediately leverage proven tools and techniques to boost performance.

    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.
