[SOLD OUT] Certified ScrumMaster for Project Managers
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.
Tomorrow's hyper-competitive business climate will call for tools, techniques and skills that enable teams to deliver products and services under shifting demands and sky-high expectations.
