    Prerquisite

    We expect you to have some prior knowledge about Scrum. In the library section of this website, you should see “Short film about Basic Scrum” and read “The Scrum Primer” – a downloadable brochure". It would also be beneficial for you if you read one of Ken Schwaber’s books prior to the class.

     

    Course Material

    Participants will receive printed and bounded material on the first day of class. The material is in English and will change from Training class to training class. The material will be enhanced by more slides, videos and other pictures in case the trainers will find this useful during class.

    Being a ScrumMaster demands a lot of skill and can at first sight look like a trivial challenge. However, once starting the journey to transform the organization there will be impediment after impediment that will challenge the implementation of Scrum. So to use Scrum, using “The Art of the Possible”, there needs to be skilled ScrumMasters to take on this challenge.

     

    Goal

    Each individual is trained to be able to assume the following responsibilities: 
    Remove the barriers between development and business (ProductOwner) so the business directly drives development; 
    Teach the business how to maximize ROI and meet their objectives through Scrum; 
    Improve the lives of the development team by facilitating creativity and empowerment; 
    Improve the productivity of the development team in any way possible; and, 
    Improve the engineering practices and tools so each increment of functionality is potentially shippable

    Training – Methology

    The training is done with several exercises. Be prepared to do hard work. The training will give you the feeling of Scrum itself.

    The first day is dedicated to the Why and the Philosophy the Meaning of Scrum. The second day hands you over the tools and the How of Scrum.

    Using anecdotes and experience, teaching the Scrum methodology, and how to use it to be an effective Agile project manager – you will learn to be a ScrumMaster.

     

    Graduation

    Upon Graduation As a result of their successful completion of the program, each participant will get an invitation to join Scrumalliance as a certified Scrum Master.

    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.
