Friday, June 20, 2014 from 8:30 AM to 5:00 PM
This 1-day course teaches the principles and practices that make Scrum effective at managing project.
The course itself uses the principles of Scrum, where the learning outcome is driven by the needs of the participants through a combination of expert instruction and self-directed learning. Opportunities to reflect and adapt the direction of the course are offered at regular intervals.
At the end of the training the participants will have the confidence and understanding to begin to socialize Scrum at their own organization and support teams in improving their processes.
The following elements will be covered during the one day course
* Scrum in Practice: the course is designed to illustrate Scrum in action.
* Understanding of the Agile Manifesto and what it means to them.
* Essence of Scrum: values, foundations and a new way of thinking.
* Understanding how Scrum values and foundations are related to the practices.
* Get a sense of what self-organization is (and is not).
* Can draw a digagram of mechanics of Scrum: framework, roles, artifacts & flow.

This is what past participants say about Conscires' trainings:
Eduardo Martinez, Project Manager and Business Analyst at ELGE Martinez Consulting, LLC
" Mr. Bachan demonstrates that he manages very well the topics and I was impressed the way and the style he used training the audience helping to understand the scrums foundations and the roles and the approach to adopt the Agile methodology.
The training was very interesting. Some of the topics that I enjoyed most was the Scrum Roles Details where it was identified all the traditional Project Manager responsibility aligned within the Agile Methodology. And also, I enjoyed learning about the technique used to Planning, Estimation Sprint and the Scrum Diagram.
Thanks Mr. Bachan for your time and dedication to this training. I think that Agile Practices is something that you should consider as an option if you want to improve your way to deliver software solution.
" Bachan's Scrum Master training was very effective and informative. I learned a lot in a short period of time, due to his intuitive methods and presentation style. He is excellent when dealing with a group of people who have different skill levels and got everyone involved effectively in the group exercises, which were key to learning the team concepts.
I would recommend Bachan as a trainer and facilitator - he knows his subject and is able to transfer that knowledge effectively.
