FINALLY AN EVENING CERTIFICATION WORKSHOP TO BETTER ACCOMMODATE BUSY WORK SCHEDULES - The certification workshop will run from 6-10pm on the evenings of September 22-24.  We will likely finish early on the last evening.  An innovative and collaborative workshop that enables Certified ScrumMasters® to help project teams properly use Scrum, increasing the likelihood of the project's overall success. CSMs understand Scrum values, practices, and applications and provide a level of knowledge and expertise above and beyond that of typical project managers. CSMs act as "servant leaders," helping the rest of the Scrum team work together and learn the Scrum framework.  It is an outstanding and fun workshop - come be a part of it and prepare for the CSM certification exam.

Instructors - Chris Doss and Mike Vizdos

Come join Chris Doss and Mike Vizdos for a fun and enjoyable workshop that provides you the background and context on why Scrum works.  Hear about what companies in the industry and doing right and what they are doing wrong.  Learn how to implement Scrum with teams and the required organizational change to make Scrum the default delivery process for your company.  We look forward to seeing you there!
