This two-day ScrumMaster certification course provides everything you need to get started with Scrum. One of the largest and fastest-growing Agile project management methodologies, Scrum is a simple software management technique that has a small set of interrelated practices and rules, is not overly prescriptive and is able to produce productivity gains for software development teams almost immediately.
Delivered by Certified ScrumMaster trainers, this course shares time-tested practices for managing product backlogs, planning your releases and iterations (Sprints) and tracking and reporting progress. You'll learn how to plan and run Sprint Planning Meetings, daily Scrum Meetings, Sprint Reviews, Sprint Retrospectives and more!
On completion, participants are registered as Certified ScrumMasters (CSMs), which includes a one-year membership in the Scrum Alliance, (www.scrumalliance.org) where valuable ScrumMaster-material and information are available exclusively to CSMs.
Important Note: Certification and membership to the Scrum Alliance is not available through the "Agile Program Management with Scrum" courses.
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.
