This two-day ScrumMaster certification course provides everything you
need to get started with Scrum. 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.
This course will introduce the essential concepts and tools of Scrum,
highlighting differences between agile processes and traditional
"waterfall" methodologies and providing a roadmap for adopting Agile.
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 active Agile practitioners
with decades of real-world industry experience at companies ranging
from small business to the Fortune 100. Exercises, case studies, and
examples are interwoven throughout the course to illustrate the
principles being taught.
Attendees will receive:
- A discounted copy of Sanjiv Augustine's book, Managing Agile Projects
- 16 PDUs towards PMI continuing certification requirements
- A printed certificate for completion of the course
All CSM courses are taught by Certified Scrum Trainers. 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.
