The Scrum Alliance’s Certified Scrum Master (CSM) course introduces Scrum concepts, practices, and principles to people who desire a foundational exposure to agile and Scrum. The class format that is hands-on, experiential and Socratic. Attendees will utilize a variety of exercises, activities, discussions and resources to help them learn and apply Scrum in both software and non-software product development situations. Subsequent to passing the CSM examination on the Scrum Alliance website, class completers become Certified ScrumMasters, a first step in the journey of learning Scrum and becoming proficient in its use. Class attendees will work individually and in small teams to learn class subject matter through an acceptance test learning format. The course includes a detailed Scrum project simulation and other exercises that will reinforce subject concepts. Participants will have opportunity to explore and apply self-organization and self-directed concepts that are attributes of high performing teams.
Participants learn about the 3 Scrum roles (Team Member, Product Owner, and ScrumMaster), the 4 Scrum meetings (Sprint Planning, Daily Scrum, Sprint Review and Sprint Retrospective) and process of building product in a time-boxed iteration called a Sprint. Attendees learn about the paradigm shifts that occur when organizations move from traditional linear / defined development environments to the empirical agile environment and strategies and tactics used to support and manage the change that occurs. Learning occurs in a highly interactive, exercise-based and discussion-based learning environment. Attendees learn by exploring and doing, not through lecture.
