    This intensive two-day course will prepare attendees to take on the ScrumMaster role, and is taught by Scrum Alliance Certified Scrum Trainer (CST) Angela Johnson. During the course, students will cover pragmatic, time-tested practices for managing product backlogs, long and short-range planning, project execution, and progress reporting. Students will also examine the many facets of Scrum, including the project lifecycle, roles, ceremonies, and artifacts.

    As part of this course, students will participate in exercises, in-depth discussion, case studies and techniques to help illustrate practices and principles. And once the course is complete, all students will be eligible for ScrumMaster Certification with the Scrum Alliance. Attendees will also receive a two-year membership in the Scrum Alliance, an organization that provides valuable materials and resources exclusively to CSMs.

     

    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.
