Certified ScrumMaster for Video Game Development
This two-day course not only provides the fundamental principles of Scrum, it also gives participants hands-on experience applying Scrum to video game development.
This course puts theory into action through extensive use of exercise and a project simulation. All exercises and discussions are specifically tailored for those working in video game development. During the course, attendees will learn why such a seemingly simple process as Scrum can have such profound effects on a studio. Participants gain practical experience working with Scrum tools and activities such as the product backlog, sprint backlog, daily Scrum meetings, sprint planning meeting, and burndown charts. Participants leave knowing how to apply Scrum to all sizes of projects, from a single collocated team to a large, highly distributed team. Attendees learn how to fulfil the role of ScrumMaster, guiding game teams to higher levels of accountability and performance.
They will leave the course able to:
Facilliate all Scrum roles, artifacts and practices.
Coach both new start and experienced teams be more successful
Avoid the barriers to adopting Scrum in a video game development environment.
Help producers, artists, designers, testers and programmers work together effectively
Participants who successfully complete the course and follow-up test, will become Certified ScrumMasters through the Scrum Alliance and receive a two-year membership in the organization where additional ScrumMaster-only material and information are available.
