CERTIFIED SCRUM MASTER

 

Certified ScrumMaster

Over two days, we put theory into action through a variety of exercises. We cover the fundamental principles of Scrum, qualifying you as a Certified ScrumMaster. More important, we give you a jump start dealing with the obstacles that confront Scrum teams. You’ll leave much better equipped to put Scrum in place and succeed with it.
PURPOSE
Gain hands-on experience with the basic principles of Scrum, including:
  • Product backlog;
  • Sprint backlog;
  • Daily Scrum meetings;
  •  Sprint planning meeting;
  •  Burn charts.
Practice dealing with the obstructions to high productivity on your Scrum team, such as:
  •  Incomplete stories at Sprint end;
  • Endless revisions to supposedly completed backlog items;
  • Thrashing at the end of the Sprint;
  • Obscure “technical” backlog items;
  •  “Scrummerfall” Sprints with lengthy analysis, and time-consuming testing;
  • Increasing technical debt slowing development to a halt.
Learn practical approaches to increasing productivity while increasing Product Owner and management satisfaction. Explore techniques for applying Scrum to large and distributed teams.
BENEFITS
Following successful completion of the course, each participant will be able to take and pass the Certified ScrumMaster exam. This certification includes a one-year membership in the Scrum Alliance, where additional ScrumMaster-only material and information are available. 
Beyond certification, participants will leave with hands-on practice with Scrum essentials and important experience. You will learn ways to help your teams execute Scrum efficiently and productively
