    Course Description

    Please send email to: to be placed on a waiting list for this course. 

    This two-day course covers the fundamentals of Scrum and Agile methods through to planning and managing your project.  The agenda covers the Scrum framework meetings such as the daily scrum, Sprint planning and the retrospective.  It will show you how to effectively track your project using burndown charts and how to measure velocity for release planning.  There are very few rules to Scrum so it is important to learn its fundamental principles by experiencing them. Participants gain hands-on practice with the release backlog, sprint backlog, the daily Scrum meeting, tracking progress with a burndown chart, and more. The class is very interactive and hands-on.

    Following successful completion of the course, each participant will be designated Certified ScrumMaster. This certification includes a one-year membership in the Scrum Alliance, where additional ScrumMaster-only material and information are available. 

    The class runs from approximately 9-5pm on both days.
