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.
Participants Will Learn:
- How to put Scrum into practice
- Essentials of beginning well
- The principles behind the practices
- Writing user stories for the product backlog
- Building a release plan
- How leadership and a self-organizing team can live together
- Helping new teams start, and more experienced teams get better
- Answering: When and how much?
- Scaling Scrum to large and/or distributed groups
- Nuggets from the school of hard knocks and from working with the best in the field
In this course, we typically mix in XP and Lean ideas. Having worked recently with Jeff Sutherland, we mix in many of his ideas and stories. Having a business background and MBA, I make this course somewhat more oriented toward Product Owners and business issues than some other CSM courses.
The course will run from 9am-5pm each day. You will need to arrive by 8:30am on the first day. A continental breakfast, breaks and lunch will be provided.
Following the course, each participant is enrolled as a Certified ScrumMaster, which includes a one-year membership in the Scrum Alliance, where additional ScrumMaster-only material and information are available.
Participants will receive course materials (not books) at the course. The CSM course was formulated to train and certify ScrumMasters and is used worldwide for ScrumMaster training. In addition, participants should obtain (at their own expense) Agile Project Management with Scrum, by Ken Schwaber, which is required reading for the course. You may also wish to obtain the primary Scrum book, Agile Software Development with SCRUM by Schwaber and Beedle, on which the course is based.
Of course, there will be updated material and training exercises in the course which you cannot get from books. The entire syllabus will be made available upon registering for the course so you can look it over and bring it with you to the sessions.
