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 is much more than a typical two-day CSM class.
It is a 3-day course in Agile Fundamentals from one of the creators of the Agile movement, author of three Jolt-winning books, co-founder of the International Consortium for Agile.
Attend this course to understand what is agile and what isn’t agile development; to develop a feeling for how teamwork, communication, frequent customer interaction and frequent delivery affect your project; to understand Scrum and the role of the ScrumMaster; to gather a few techniques to take home and use immediately.
This course is registered with the International Consortium for Agile, the ScrumAlliance and the Project Management Institute. You will leave with the ICAgile Associate certificate from the International Consortium for Agile, enabled to take the ScrumMaster assessment and get your Certified ScrumMaster (CSM) certificate from the Scrum Alliance, and able to claim PDUs from the Project Management Institute.
This workshop is based on the award-winning books Agile Software Development, onCrystal Clear: A Human-Powered Methodology for Small Teams, and Managing Projects with Scrum.
The first part of the course sets out Scrum and the role of the ScrumMaster; the second gives the attendee a gut feeling for the is and the isn’t and the theory of agile development the 7 Properties of Highly Successful Projects; the third introduces key useful techniques for product overview and planning, Jeff Patton’s story mapping technique and the blitz planning technique.
Each part introduces its concepts with small lecture, followed by team activities to anchor them. The activities are constructed to give attendees a sense for how it feels to be doing some of the key practices as well as what how it feels not to do them. The techniques reviewed are valuable in carrying out any kind of project, not only agile ones.

Being a certified Scrum master (CSM) is the beginning of a journey. While each and every course of mine is based on the same material, each course has its own unique dynamic and sparks. Due to the fact that this is an interaction course, what you put into it is what you get out of it.
Here are the topics being covered
• The history of Agile
• Your project pains
• Scrum introduction
• Change management in Scrum
• Planning and estimation
• User stories – the right way to write them
• Roles & Responsibilities
• Day in a life of a Scrum master
• Building self maintained cross functional team
• Definition of Done
• Assimilation scrum in a wide variety of environments
• Scaling scrum
• Negotiating skills and techniques
• The manager's role in scrum
During the course we created a parking lot in order to ensure that each and every raised issue is being covered. There are a LOT of simulation and exercises in which we are practicing day to day challenges that can occur the first day the implementation begins (sometimes the day after the course!)
Since Scrum is implemented with Scrum, the course is implemented in Scrum as well so at the end of each day we are practicing in doing a retrospective (you may call it "lesson learned but while their main goal is the same, there is a huge different between them and the way they are performed) and implement it on the very next day to ensure high quality best fit to the specific audience!
Throughout the course there is time for questions and answers as well as dedicated time frame at the finishing line of the course
