Not Your Grandma's Scrum Class
Who wants to snooze through 14 hours of PowerPoint?
Not all Certified Scrum Product Owner courses are created equal. With Agile Learning Labs, you will participate in project simulations and game-based learning exercises, so you can learn by doing.
Chris Sims has played most roles on a scrum team at various times, including product owner. He also has a technical background, so he can help bridge the gap for students who may not be fluent in geek-speak.
Chris is famous for his unique style of teaching through innovative games and simulations--in fact, the entire class is run using the tools and techniques you'll be studying, so you'll have completed an actual scrum project by the time you graduate. You'll also come away with a list of "Aha!" moments as long as your arm, all of which will be things you discovered yourself, while actually doing scrum.
Every student takes home a copy of Chris' book, The Elements of Scrum, which is used as a textbook in colleges and by other scrum trainers. You can read the first chapter, A Week In The Life of a Scrum Team online, or check out the five-star reviews on Amazon.
Testimonials from past participants:
"You hit all the marks in terms of the environment you set up, the level of student participation, the relevance of the material, the practicality, and the sheer enjoyment of learning. I hope we meet again in a training or workshop soon."
“The teaching style is interactive, which facilitates the learning process. Never a dull moment!”
“This CSPO workshop takes the essence of Scrum and makes it easy to understand for a new product owner.”
“I strongly recommend this class for these three reasons:
- Industry experience of the instructors.
- Answering questions by bringing real stories as examples.
- Structure and amazing preparedness.
This class is top notch.”
Two Hours of Free Coaching Included
We want you to succeed, and we've found that the best way to help you do that is to follow up with a visit to where you live. So graduation entitles you to two hours of an Agile Learning Labs coach's time. You can use this for a personal coaching session, or if you're fired up and want to spread the love to the folks back home, we can come into your company and deliver a two-hour brown bag presentation on any number of topics.
Many of our students are members of the Project Management Institute (PMI) and are interested in claiming Professional Development Units (PDUs) or contact hours. When you combine the 14 hours of classroom instruction with the two hours of free coaching, you are eligible to receive a whopping 16 PDUs or contact hours, and we'll give you everything you need to claim them.
