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 ScrumMaster Certification course, you will learn the essentials
of working as a ScrumMaster or Scrum team member. You will learn how to
assume the responsibilities of a ScrumMaster and to guide the
development team, a project, or an organisation into Agile practice by
fostering the adoption of new attitudes, collaborative processes and
working to remove institutional barriers.
While the Scrum Alliance provides a list of core concepts that must be
covered in the class, each instructor creates his or her own material,
allowing courses to differ based on the strengths, interests, and
experiences of the instructor. Martine's interest, research and
experience has focused on planning and estimation techniques and as
such this ScrumMaster Certification course covers Agile Estimation and
Planning techniques in particular depth.
Upon completion of this ScrumMaster course, you will know how to
use Scrum to maximise value creation, improve customer and employee
satisfaction as well as engineering practices and tools.
Additionally, upon successful completion of the course, each
participant is enrolled as a Certified ScrumMaster, which includes a
one-year Scrum Alliance membership, where additional ScrumMaster-only
material and information is available.
Delegates will also receive a copy of Agile Software Development with SCRUM
during the course.
In addition, please note that this course leads to 14 Professional Development Units (PDUs) as approved by the PMI
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.
