Certified ScrumMaster in Chicago
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.
Being a member of a Scrum team can be a daunting prospect. Being asked to serve as the team’s ScrumMaster can be downright intimidating. You’ve got an idea of what Scrum is, and have read a few articles or books on the topic, but you really don’t know how to start putting that theory into action.
That’s where the Certified ScrumMaster program comes in. As the only ScrumMaster certification endorsed by the Scrum Alliance, you can trust that our trainers will teach you what you need to know to fill the role of ScrumMaster (or Scrum team member). This course focuses on the basics of the Scrum framework, including team roles, activities, and artifacts, so that you can be an effective member of a Scrum team.
This two-day course not only provides the fundamental principles of Scrum, it also gives participants hands-on experience through a variety of interactive exercises. Bob Sarni, who is an experienced Certified Scrum Coach (CSC) and Certified Scrum Trainer (CST) with many years of experience working with Scrum teams and whole organizations on the application and adoption of Scrum, will facilitate this course to help guide you on the beginning of your journey into Scrum.
