    This course will be led by Jeff Sutherland, Co-Creator of Scrum and runs from 9:00am - 5:00pm each day.

    Learn how to stop thrashing and start executing along with everything necessary for getting started with Scrum. There are very few rules to Scrum so it is important to learn its fundamental principles by experiencing them directly from those who have implemented the best Scrums in the software industry. Participants gain hands-on practice with the release backlog, sprint backlog, the daily Scrum meeting, tracking progress with a burndown chart, and more. Participants experience the Scrum process through a “59-minute Scrum” and the "XP Game” which simulate Scrum projects through non-technical group exercises.

    Following the course, each participant of the 2-day CSM course is enrolled as a Certified ScrumMaster, which includes a one-year membership in the Scrum Alliance, where additional Certified ScrumMaster-only material and information are available. 

    An optional third day at no additional charge, led by Kent Johnson, helps ScrumMasters obtain the knowledge to effectively use Scrum with CMMI.  Participants may attend either the CSM course, the CMMI course, or all three days.  For more information or to register please visit the course page at http://scrumtraininginstitute.com/classes/show/389

    Course Material:

    CSM Participants will receive course materials the first day of the course. A syllabus is available at http://jeffsutherland.com/csmsyllabus.pdf

    The CSM course was formulated to train and certify ScrumMasters and is used worldwide for ScrumMaster training. The book, Agile Project Management with Scrum, by Ken Schwaber is required reading for the course and the course is based on the primary Scrum book, Agile Development with Scrum.  Of course, there will be updated materials and training exercises in the course which you cannot get from books. 

    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.
