Course Description

Scrum is a very useful agile framework for completing complex projects. A Certified ScrumMaster® (CSM) helps 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. CSMs also protect the team from both internal and external distractions.

In this intensive two-day Certified ScrumMaster® Workshop, taught by a Scrum Alliance Certified Scrum Trainer, students will learn how to put theory into action through a variety of exercises, case studies and in-depth discussions. Topics include the fundamental principles of Scrum which will qualify you as a Certified ScrumMaster. But more importantly the class will give you a jump start in dealing with the obstacles that confront Scrum teams. Overall, you’ll leave much better equipped to put Scrum in place and succeed with it.

Students MUST attend ALL sessions of all courses in order to be eligible to sit for the corresponding certification exam.
