This two-day ScrumMaster certification course provides everything you need to begin leading or participating in a Scrum team. On completion, participants are eligible to take an exam which allows them to be registered as Certified ScrumMasters (CSMs), and includes a two-year membership in the Scrum Alliance, (www.scrumalliance.org) where valuable materials and information are available exclusively to CSMs.
Participants learn the essential concepts and tools of Scrum, differences between Agile processes and traditional "waterfall" methodologies, and how to build a roadmap for adopting Agile at your organization. Participants will learn how to lead development teams towards Agile operations by: managing product backlogs, planning releases and sprints, tracking and reporting progress, and conducting retrospectives. This course is taught by leading Agile practitioners with decades of real-world industry experience at companies ranging from small businesses to the Fortune 100. Exercises, demonstrations, facilitated discussions, case studies, tool and template examples, and more are interwoven throughout the course to illustrate the principles being taught in a comprehensive fashion interactively tailored to each class’s particular needs.
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.
