This two-day Certified ScrumMaster Training prepares you to gain your ScrumMaster certification to put your skills to immediate use in complex situations and projects. Upon completion, participants are eligible to take an online exam which allows them to be registered as Certified ScrumMasters (CSMs). Certification includes a two-year membership in the Scrum Alliance, where valuable ScrumMaster materials and information are available exclusively to CSMs.
This course covers the essential concepts and tools of Scrum, highlighting differences between agile processes and traditional "waterfall" methodologies and providing a roadmap for adopting Agile. Look into the theoretical bases of Scrum, including Lean and the quality movement. Discover lesser known Agile methods like Kanban, and learn how to apply Scrum to program and portfolio management at scale.
A course suited for both IT and non-IT participants, learn how to lead development teams towards agile operations by managing product backlogs, planning releases and sprints, tracking and reporting progress, and conducting retrospectives.
Most courses teach you just enough to pass the CSM test. We do that too (in fact, we guarantee it), but view the certification as secondary to a comprehensive grasp of not just Scrum’s philosophy, but its real-world applications across different organizational scenarios. This includes applying Scrum outside of software development to business functions such as HR, marketing and sales.
Learn how to lead development teams towards agile operations by managing product backlogs, planning releases and sprints, tracking and reporting progress, and conducting retrospectives.
We have led full-scale organizational transformations at many scales and in many situations: from Fortune 100 commercial businesses to government agencies; heavily regulated organizations to gaming companies; small non-profits to individuals applying the practices at home.
