    This 2-day workshop will give you a solid foundation in the Scrum project management framework. We cover the underlying principles, basic practices and common techniques for project success in a fast-changing world. Through hands-on exercises and a simulated Scrum project, you will gain familiarity and confidence in your ability to apply the framework in your organization. You will learn how small, high performance teams can achieve product development goals at a surprisingly quick yet sustainable pace.

    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.
