Learn Agile from the founder of PMI's Agile Community of Practice
Many organizations are adopting Agile approaches to improve their software development capability, following the lead of the path-finding Internet-era companies who have shown the way to rapid innovation and dominance in their market spaces. This 2-day course provides a great foundation for anyone adopting Scrum, the most popular Agile framework. Scrum is a deceptively simple framework and you will quickly learn about its roles, artefacts and process. However, its adaptive nature and impact on traditional organizational models and ways of working requires a fundamental grasp of the underlying principles for a truly successful implementation. We put theory into practice in a number of exercises and simulations which are both enjoyable and instructive.
Despite its name, this course is not just for ScrumMasters but is an effective primer for anyone who will be closely involved with teams adopting Scrum, including Project & Program Managers, Product Owners, IT managers, and Senior Developers.
After taking this course, students are eligible to take a 60 question online exam within 90 days of the course to earn the certification. At this time, all students will be given a passing grade on the Certified ScrumMaster exam as the Scrum Alliance verifies appropriate exam questions and course content. Exam fees are included with course registration. For more details on our Certified ScrumMaster Training please download our website: http://ripple-rock.com/training

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.
