    Date: 2-3 October, 2008
    Location: Charlotte, NC, United States

    Regular Price: $1350 per person

    Participants Will Learn:
    • Practical, project-proven practices
    • The essentials of getting a project off on the right foot
    • How to write user stories for the product backlog
    • Why there's more to leading a self-organizing team than buying pizza and getting out of the way
    • How to help both new and experienced teams be more successful
    • How to successfully scale Scrum to large, multi-continent projects with team sizes in the hundreds
    • Tips and tricks from the instructors' years of using Scrum in a wide variety of situations

    In this course, we typically mix in XP and Lean ideas.  Having worked recently with Jeff Sutherland, we mix in many of his ideas and stories.  Having a business background and MBA, this course is perhaps somewhat more oriented toward Product Owners and business issues.

    Additional Information:

    The course will run from 9am-5pm each day. You will need to arrive by 8:30am on the first day. A continental breakfast, breaks and lunch will be provided.

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

    Course Material:

    Participants will receive course materials (not books) at the course. The CSM course was formulated to train and certify ScrumMasters and is used worldwide for ScrumMaster training. In addition, participants should obtain (at their own expense) Agile Project Management with Scrum, by Ken Schwaber, which is required reading for the course. You may also wish to obtain the primary Scrum book, Agile Software Development with SCRUM by Schwaber and Beedle, on which the course is based.

    Of course, there will be updated material and training exercises in the course which you cannot get from books. The entire syllabus will be made available upon registering for the course so you can look it over and bring it with you to the sessions.

    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.
