    This two-day Certified ScrumMaster course provides the foundations of Scrum practices and Agile thinking for your team including the Scrum Masters, Product Owners, the team, and management including Project Managers, and other Management members. On completion of the course and a post-course online evaluation at Scrum Alliance, you are registered as Certified ScrumMaster (CSM) with a two-year membership in the Scrum Alliance where valuable materials and information are available.

    Unlike other training programs, this is an experiential learning workshop where your will experience what you are learning thru carefully designed activities, well-facilitated discussions, some lecture, and some practice exams. This is not your typical training where the instructor tells you everything from the podium using a power point presentation. Attendees will receive a rich workbook, reading materials that they can use personally or for educating their organization.

    Come prepared to actively participate in exercises and discussions. Attendees will go back with knowledge and skills that you can start using with your teams and organizations on the next day. Come with a beginners mind : In the beginner’s mind there are many possibilities, in the expert’s mind there are few. This training will help you see new possibilities and learn techniques to come up with your own solutions for your challenges.

    Manoj Vadakkan is a practitioner who enjoys helping individuals, teams, and organizations practice Agile well. He will help you learn Scrum practices from his wide array of experience within small & large, private & government, software & non-software, co-located & distributed organizations. Join this workshop to learn from a practitioner!

     

    He will be available to answer questions even after the workshop to help you with taking the test and more importantly to answer questions you may have when practicing what you learned. Based on availability, attendees may schedule a limited number of short calls to get answers for their follow up questions after the training. We want you to be successful in adopting Scrum in your organization.

    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.
