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.
In this special 3 day class for scrummasters and product owners -- price of a two day -- we will focus on both the Product Owner and the ScrumMaster and product coach role. Product Owner team (with analysts), scrummaster and development team have to work very closely to deliver successful product early. Often one or more of the roles is not well trained.
The product owners will work with the rest of the team (scrummasters and coaches, teammembers) and learn and experience their role in lecture and a lot of exercises.
Scrummasters will learn how to work with product owners on the longer term planning of product and project and how to help the product owner to improve communication and specification -- stories, use cases, acceptance criteria.
Scrum is a simple but powerfull agile management framework. Key to its success is the role of the Product Owner: the Product Owner steers and guides the Scrum Project, bridges the gap between end customers, business and development/IT and is responsible for the return on Investment. The product owner often combines the traditional role of project manager and product manager.
This three day interaction course equips you with everuthing you need to know to be an effective product owner (or help an ineffective one become effective). At the end of the class you will understand how you leverage Scrum to optimize customer satisfaction and technical excellence. You will be able to create realistic release plans and know how you can help the team to increase its effectiveness (and productivity), level the workload and steer the project proactively.
The class will also talk about successstories working with Product owner and scrumteam in different location and show examples of acceptance spec driven work.
