This course will be co-taught by Geoff Watts and Paul Goddard who, together have extensive practical experience of Scrum teams.
Learn the Scrum framework for an agile project and the essentials of working as a ScrumMaster or Scrum team member. Through a fun mix of theoretical explanation, problem exploration and practical exercises, this 2-day course will equip attendees for their first Scrum project or enable them to reflect on their projects and become more agile.
Attendees will learn, through doing and questioning, about Scrum concepts and artefacts such as the Product Backlog, release planning, Sprint planning, the Daily Scrum and burndown charts. They will also learn that, despite being a simple framework, it is deceptively simple as Scrum requires discipline and hard work to be effective.
Each aspect of the Scrum framework is explained in terms of its principles, its relation to the rest of the framework and is supplemented with stories of real-life examples while also giving the attendees the opportunity to explore the concepts in fun, practical case-studies.
Questions and conversations are encouraged throughout and there is also a dedicated Q&A session to explore the concerns and practical queries. As Certified Scrum Trainers we are approved by the Scrum Alliance and have had experience of Scrum implementations small, medium and large, coming up against and resolving many barriers to Scrum along the way.
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.
