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 two-day ScrumMaster certification course provides everything you need to get started with Scrum . The largest and fastest-growing Agile project management methodology, Scrum is a simple framework that has a small set of interrelated practices and rules, is not overly prescriptive and enables more effective teams almost immediately.
Delivered by Rally’s world-renowned Certified Scrum Trainers (CSTs), this course shares industry-tested practices for evolving Product Backlogs, planning your Releases and Sprints, tracking and reporting progress, and developing continuous improvement cycles. Participants will learn how to effectively plan and run daily Scrum Meetings, Sprint Planning Meetings, Sprint Reviews, Retrospectives, and more.
Upon completion of the course and a post-course online evaluation, participants are registered as Certified ScrumMasters (CSMs). Registration includes a two-year membership in the Scrum Alliance, (www.scrumalliance.org) where valuable ScrumMaster material and information are available.
