By the co-creator of Scrum and co-author of the Scrum Primer
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.
This course is sponsored by the Scrum Training Institute and will be taught by Jeff Sutherland, Co-Creator of Scrum, and Gabrielle Benefield.
Jeff invented Scrum at Easel Corporation in 1993 and worked with Scrum Co-Creator Ken Schwaber, to formalize the Scrum development process at OOPSLA’95. In 2001, Jeff and Ken were signatories of the Agile Manifesto. You will hear directly from one of the founders of Agile software development on how to implement best practices in your organization.
This hands-on, interactive two-day course will teach you:
· How to be an effective ScrumMaster
· Improve teamwork
· Launch products sooner
· Improve engineering practices to deliver high-quality products
Upon successful completion of this course, each participant will be enrolled as a Certified ScrumMaster, which includes a one-year Scrum Alliance membership, where additional ScrumMaster-only material and information is available. You can also receive 16 Professional Development Units (PDUs) for this course.
The course will Run 9:00 am to 5:00 pm. Please arrive at 8:30 each day for a continental breakfast. Participants are welcome to consult our list of recommended reading:
About the Instructors:
Jeff Sutherland started the first Scrum at Easel Corporation in 1993 and worked with Scrum Co-Creator Ken Schwaber, to formalize the Scrum development process at OOPSLA’95. In the same year, Sutherland provided Kent Beck background information on the creation of Scrum to help him create eXtreme Programming. XP engineering practices then evolved along with SCRUM and the two leading Agile development processes work well together. Scrum and XP are the most widely used Agile processes worldwide and their creators are authors of the Agile Manifesto.
Gabrielle Benefield was Senior Director of Agile Development at Yahoo! leading Yahoo!’s large-scale corporate adoption of Scrum, which encompassed more than 200 team projects and over 1500 employees in the US, India, Europe, and Asia. She is co-author of The Scrum Primer (www.scrumprimer.com), the most widely read introductory guide to Scrum available and became the 12th Certified Scrum Trainer in the world, being personally certified by Ken Schwaber. Gabrielle provides training and coaching in many Agile and Lean methodologies.
