Use Scrum to Learn Scrum

CSM training is divided up into four Sprints in order to allow participants to fully immerse themselves in the Scrum framework. The learning modules for the course are listed in a Product Backlog which includes each Learning Objective (LO’s) established by the Scrum Alliance for this class. Throughout the class, students will be reviewing the LO’s and be asked to accept them if they feel that the topic is complete. This is our way of QA’ing each topic and making sure that the participants know we have met the class Learning Objectives. In addition to this, the class includes many topics and exercises which are not listed in the LO’s but are a big part of making sure that each participant leaves the class with tools and practices they can bring back to work and implement right away.

Dave Prior—Certified Scrum Trainer, leads the live online class, two-day learning experience. In addition to the Scrum Alliance covered material, Dave brings decades of experience to the class with thought provoking examples, discussion of real-world scenarios, interactive exercises as well as examples and stories about what happens when you step out of the classroom and practice Scrum “in the wild.”

By the end of the class you will be completely prepared to pass the CSM exam, not because you have memorized facts, but because you have internalized and practiced the concepts needed to successfully implement Scrum when you get back to work.

Agenda:

This class covers all required material for CSM as well as some additional Agile topics that are beneficial to the conversation. The focus is on providing the participants with practical tools and techniques they can use in their work as a Scrum Master. The primary topics are listed below. Participants will also have the option of adding topics of their own choosing, as time allows. This course covers all the content required for Scrum Master Certification as defined by the Scrum Alliance here.

Agenda includes (but is not limited to):
  • Agile Overview
  • Scrum Theory
  • Scrum Roles
  • Scrum Meetings and Events
  • Scrum Artifacts
  • Definition of Done
  • Scrum Tracking and Reporting
  • Agile Facilitation
  • Agile Coaching
  • Servant Leadership

The ScrumMaster course is a great fit for anyone new to Scrum or who has been practicing it in the field and needs to reacquaint themselves with the Scrum framework. If you are coming from a traditional (waterfall) background, are skeptical about, or struggling with getting your head around Agile, this class is for you. With Dave’s experience transitioning from traditional project management to Agile, he takes special care to try and pave an easier way for the participants who are struggling to adopt Agile. That intent, coupled with the experience of all three of our trainers in helping others make the journey into a new way of approaching work provide the framework in which we approach the topic of how to succeed as a Scrum Master.

Not sure which class to take? In 6 minutes Dave explains who should be a ScrumMaster and who should be a Product Owner.
