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.
For health reasons, Ken Schwaber will be unable to make this unique co-teaching event. The price for this 3-day class was accordingly reduced from $1,900 to $1,400.
Scrum is a framework for effectively managing complex projects, programs, and enterprises. Using iterative, incremental techniques, Scrum harnesses self-managing, cross-functional teams to improve productivity and quality, and provide actionable information and techniques for managing risk and return on investment every iteration. This course teaches people in leadership and management roles how to use Scrum to achieve these benefits.
Agile development exists because it is effective. In the general agile sections of the course, you will learn what makes effective software teams successful and why, and how it comes about that agile development is so effective. You will learn key techniques for improving your team's working habits, and how to set up projects, including story mapping, blitz planning, reflection workshops, and nano-incremental development.
