    When you’re ready to learn the fundamentals of agile and Scrum, choose a BigVisible Certified ScrumMaster course. Our two-day, hands-on workshop is filled with practical advice and time-tested techniques designed to give students the foundation they need to succeed with Scrum. Our Certified Scrum Trainers are coaches first, which means that long after your course is over, we have the experience and expertise to provide ongoing support and assist you in implementing what you've learned.

    Why a BigVisible Course?

    BigVisible focuses on one thing: enabling organizational agility. As coaches, we understand the challenges organizations face at all phases of their agile implementations: from team-level execution and delivery, to higher-level strategy, governance, and leadership. We know that for an organization to achieve agility, people at all levels must understand agile principles and be educated about agile processes like Scrum.

    Our foundational training courses are firmly rooted in the core agile principles and practices you need to achieve success, regardless of your ultimate role in the organization. In addition to this quality training, BigVisible offers comprehensive coaching services, so if you get stuck or find that you need more help applying what you’ve learned, you can call on us.

    About the Instructor

    Dave Prior is a Certified Scrum Trainer and PMP with over 16 years of experience managing IT and technology projects, programs, and portfolios. His goal is to establish a better bridge between agile and the traditional project management worlds. In 2008, during his time as Chair of PMI’s IT & Telecom SIG, Dave began working with the Scrum Alliance to establish programming to help project managers become more aware of and educated about Scrum and agile. He also participated in the founding of the Malaysian Scrum Chapter in 2010.

    In addition to his work leading technology programs and projects, Dave also has extensive experience training Information Technology leaders and coaching organizations in managing projects using both an agile and a traditional approach. His work as an educator and speaker has provided him with the opportunity to lecture and teach classes in the U.S., Asia, the Middle East, Europe and Central America.

    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.
