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, where additional ScrumMaster-only material and information is available.
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.
Before the course, students are required to read Agile Project Management with SCRUM by Ken Schwaber or Agile Software Development with SCRUM by Ken Schwaber and Mike Beedle.

Getting Started in Scrum
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.
