This course is taught in English.
In this two-day course, you will apply the Scrum framework to build a new product. You will learn what it feels like to be on a Scrum team—experiencing many of the challenges you're likely to face—while being coached by someone involved with the application of Scrum at many organizations. This “learning by doing” style of instruction demands your open mind and active participation.
We will apply the experiential activities to discussion of advanced topics such as how to use Scrum in multiple-team organizations, how to measure progress empirically at a macro level, release planning to maximize ROI, and why such a simple framework disrupts organizations to be the best they can be.
Participants who complete the course successfully will be designated “Certified ScrumMaster” (CSM). This certification includes a one-year membership in the Scrum Alliance, where additional Certified ScrumMaster-only material and information are available.
The CSM course will cover the following topics (among others) through two days of interactive exercises, lecture, and discussion:
- Introduction to Scrum
- Scrum Roles and Responsibilities
- Agile Requirements Analysis
- Estimating and Prioritizing Product backlogs
- Sprint Planning, Execution, Review, and Retrospectives
- What does "Done" mean?
- Technical Debt and other pitfalls
- Release planning based on empirical measurement
- Scrum in multiple-team organizations
- How/whether Scrum fits with Lean, RUP, XP, etc.
- Q & A
Food and refreshments are typically provided.
Danube provides products and services to facilitate project success in a world of change.
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.
