This workshop leads to ScrumMaster certification through the Scrum Alliance, and is worth 14 PDUs through the Project Management Institute (PMI) for Project Managers working on maintaining their PMP credential.
Don't sit through 14 hours of PowerPoint... Not all Certified ScrumMaster courses are created equal. With Agile Learning Labs, you will participate in project simulations and game-based learning exercises, so you can learn by doing!
Top notch instruction. Chris Sims is famous for his unique style of teaching through innovative Agile games and simulations. Check out our full lineup ofinteractive Agile workshops.
What to expect: Our instructional style is highly interactive, so you will be moving about, participating in games and simulations. Participation in any physical exercise is of course optional--in fact the role of "observer" is quite valuable, so feel free to participate at your ability and comfort levels.
When do we start and end each day? The classroom opens at 8:30 AM each day and class will begin promptly at 9:00 AM. We will end at 5:00 PM each day.
Will there be food? We'll be providing continental breakfast, lunch, and snacks both days. Vegetarian options will be available both days. You are also welcome to bring in food.
Will I be able to check email? Yes, there will be wifi.
What should I bring? Yourself. You won't need a laptop, but you are free to bring one.
Is there something I should read before the workshop? When you take any Agile Learning Labs scrum certification class, you will receive a bound copy of our book,The Elements of Scrum on the first day of class. This book is a field guide to the real-world application of scrum. We recommend you prepare for the workshop by reading A Week in the Life of a Scrum Team.
