Not Your Grandma's Scrum Class
Who wants to snooze 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.
Chris Sims is famous for his unique style of teaching through innovative games and simulations--in fact, the entire class is run using the tools and techniques you'll be studying, so you'll have completed an actual scrum project by the time you graduate. You'll also come away with a list of "Aha!" moments as long as your arm, all of which will be things you discovered yourself, while actually doing scrum.
Every student takes home a copy of Chris' book, The Elements of Scrum, which is used as a textbook in colleges and by other scrum trainers. You can read the first chapter, A Week In The Life of a Scrum Team online, or check out the five-star reviews on Amazon.
Testimonials from past participants:
“By far the best, most illuminating professional improvement course I’ve ever taken.”
“The combination of relevant exercises, clear lectures and real Scrum methodology was superb. We also had excellent class participation.”
“The content was relevant and the exercises drove home the information in a way that I felt clarity about what was being taught.”
“Nice to actually do scrum while learning about it–we learned more from each other than I would from a standard lecture format.”
“This course met and exceeded my expectations–now I feel prepared for working on a scrum team with confidence!”
Two Hours of Free Coaching Included
We want you to succeed, and we've found that the best way to help you do that is to follow up with a visit to where you live. So graduation entitles you to two hours of an Agile Learning Labs coach's time. You can use this for a personal coaching session, or if you're fired up and want to spread the love to the folks back home, we can come into your company and deliver a two-hour brown bag presentation on any number of topics.
Many of our students are members of the Project Management Institute (PMI) and are interested in claiming Professional Development Units (PDUs) or contact hours. When you combine the 15 hours of classroom instruction with the two hours of free coaching, you are eligible to receive a whopping 17 PDUs or contact hours, and we'll give you everything you need to claim them.
