Certified ScrumMaster & Agile Fundamentals
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 introduces the student to Agile product development through a series of group activities, introspections, lecture, and practical techniques. It is based on the recommendations for Fundamentals in Agile Development created by the International Consortium for Agile. The course covers
- Development of the basic mindset and approach for agile development
- Application of the 4 values of the Agile Manifesto to product development
- Basics of Scrum, including the role of the ScrumMaster and Certified ScrumMaster preparation as needed for the CSM assessment
The course includes concepts, practice and theory, including Scrum, Lean and the advanced Crystal processes. The course prepares the student for ScrumAlliance's Certified ScrumMaster exam or to receive the IC Agile's Associate certificate. The course includes the book Crystal Clear, which shows techniques and work products used on agile projects.
