    Martine Devos' two day ScrumMaster with Release Planning and Accelerated Business Case will teach you the fundamental principles of Scrum, qualifying you as a Certified ScrumMaster.   And it does more.  
    Leading a Scrum team is radically different to traditional project management. Rather than plan, instruct, and direct, the leader of a Scrum team (called a ScrumMaster) facilitates, coaches and leads.

    In this intensive and highly interactive workshop, you will learn to deal with the obstacles that confront Scrum teams.  You will learn to work with business people and executives.   And learn how to convince them of the benefits of working the scrum-way:   delivering working tested software every 30 days (or less), reducing time to market and elimination of waster.  You will put theory into practise through a variety of exercises and take-aways to use with managers, customers and co-workers.    Martine will share stories with you based on more than 30 years of practice -- as developer, product owner, manager and trainer.  

    Upon successful completion of the course, you will be enrolled as a Certified ScrumMaster.  This includes a two-year Scrum Alliance membership, where additional ScrumMaster-only material and information is available.

    More importantly, upon completion of this workshop you'll leave with an understanding of Scrum and how to put it into practice and succeed with it.
    You will be able to share your experience with your colleagues and help your teams execute Scrum efficiently and productively. 

    PMI members can claim up to 15 PDU's upon completion of this course.
    Delegates will also receive a copy of a book on scrum and access to a set of articles (by Martine and other agile experts on topics from business case to testing...).  Lunch is provided on both course dates.

    All CSM courses are taught by Trainers approved by the Scrum Alliance. 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.
