This two-day highly interactive special Certified ScrumMaster class not only teaches in-depth Scrum fundamentals but introduces the students to many aspects of Enteprise Scrum -- the practice of Scrum in medium to large companies with distributed environments. The class includes many exercises and games that will allow the students to not only know the Scrum practices and patterns, but to actually practice them hand-on and get a feel for the attitudes and values.
All of the levels including the personal -- what a single team member does, the tactical -- the day-to-day Sprint activities, the strategic -- how the overall project lines up with the specific line of business, and the enterprise level -- how multiple projects are managed in an enterprise, are discussed in detail.
Participants gain practical experience working with Scrum practices, patterns and artifacts such as the Product Backlog, Release Planning Meeting, Sprint Planning Meeting, Sprint Backlog, Daily Scrums, Sprint Review Meeting, Retrospective and Burndown Charts. Participants leave knowing how to apply Scrum to all sizes of projects, from a single collocated team to a large, highly distributed team.
Following successful completion of the course, you will be qualified and ready to pass the new Scrum Alliance certification test. This multiple-choice, online test is required to become a Certified ScrumMaster, which includes a one-year membership in the Scrum Alliance, where additional ScrumMaster-only material and information are available. For more information on the certification exam, see this page about the CSM exam.
