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.
The standard, basic CSM is two days; this CSM PLUS is a three-day in-depth seminar on the art of serving as an effective ScrumMaster or agile leader, on the Scrum framework, and the organizational changes involved in adopting Scrum. In addition to all standard CSM content, you will learn -- through exercises and discussion – more key concepts and skills in Scrum and agile methods, including Large-Scale Scrum, agile organizational design, enterprise-level adoption and transition, Scrum in the context of offshore and/or multisite development, specification by example and its relationship to Acceptance TDD, how to do agile estimation, splitting large requirements into smaller customer-centric requirements, Product Backlog prioritization, how to facilitate a Scrum Retrospective, how to coach a Sprint Review, and more.
