Certified ScrumMaster Training


Certified Scrum Master TrainingThis two-day Certified ScrumMaster Training prepares you both to gain your ScrumMaster certification, and more importantly to utilize it in complex situations and projects. Upon completion, you'll be eligible to take an exam allowing you to become Certified ScrumMasters (CSMs), which includes a two-year membership in the Scrum Alliance, where valuable ScrumMaster materials and information are available exclusively to CSMs.

We'll cover the essential concepts and tools of Scrum, highlighting differences between agile processes and traditional "waterfall" methodologies and providing a roadmap for adopting Agile. We'll look into the theoretical basis of Scrum, including Lean and the quality movement. We’ll also cover newer advances such as Kanban, and learn how to apply Scrum to program and portfolio management at scale.

You'll 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 industry leaders with decades of real-world industry experience rolling out Scrum 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. We'll review personal case studies of how the trainer helped companies use Scrum on projects and organizations ranging from 5 to 5,000 people, and participants will have the chance to raise and discuss their own situations, providing one of the most targeted training experiences available.

We also offer sessions with partners, including Xebia in Amsterdam and Softkey in South Florida.
