    This hands-on, interactive class enables the course delegates to apply Scrum effectively:

    • Assume the responsibilities of a ScrumMaster
    • Remove the barriers between development and the customer so that the customer/Product Owner directly drives development
    • Improve employee satisfaction
    • Improve the engineering practices and tools so each increment of functionality is potentially shippable

    Additionally, upon successful completion of the course, each participant is enrolled as a Certified ScrumMaster, which includes a one-year Scrum Alliance membership and access to ScrumMaster-only material.


    Project managers, team leads, and IT/development managers interested in successfully introducing Scrum into their organizations, as well as, product managers, business analysts, architects and developers interested in applying Scrum.
