Event description

Description

Overview

You’re a Certified ScrumMaster® (CSM®), who’s been introduced to the Scrum Values, practices, and applications. The next step in your Agile journey is to achieve your Advanced Certified ScrumMaster (A-CSM℠) certification.

Through the A-CSM, you’ll learn to:

  • Facilitate better dialogue between the Product Owner, Scrum Team members, customers, stakeholders, and executives

  • Respond confidently when encountering resistance to change, lack of engagement, low motivation, and unavailability of key people

  • Increase engagement to encourage greater accountability, commitment, and buy-in

  • Scale Scrum and Agile beyond a single team


Benefits

  • Build on your foundational knowledge with enhanced implementation skills

  • Distinguish yourself in the global marketplace

  • Stand out in your industry as a member of the globally recognized Scrum Alliance community

  • Show advanced value to your employer (or potential employer) as a highly trained Agile professional


Scope

Scrum Alliance has adopted the Scrum Guide, The Definitive Guide to Scrum: The Rules of the Game, co-authored and updated (most recently in 2017) by the co-creators of the Scrum framework as the guiding curriculum for this offering. A-CSM® candidates are expected to build a body of knowledge of the Scrum framework, including its roles, events, and artifacts. Incorporating Scrum principles and practices takes diligence, patience, and a commitment to continuous improvement. Scrum is a framework, not
