Event Details

 

 

  1. The course is taught interactively. No death by PowerPoint. Students will learn hands-on via teams, discussions, numerous exercises and fun. Results: 99% of my students pass the exam, and class feedback has been more than 9.5.
  2. Experience. Are you a fulltime employee who is or will be a ScrumMaster? Check the LinkedIn experience of the other trainers and see what you find. I have 3 years experience as a fulltime ScrumMaster, and another 3 coaching at the best agile coaching organizations in the nation, Rally and BigVisible. Uniquely qualified in Nashville.
  3. Get what you pay for - the instructor. I'm local. If you need help, or have a question, I'll respond. Heck, I might even see you at the local user groups. :-)

 

This course is taught interactively. Rather than PowerPoint, students will learn via teams, discussion, interaction and exercises. Class feedback has been more than 9.5 on a scale of 1 to 10. "Inspiring," wrote one student.

 

This short video reveals some of how and why my workshops stand out from traditional Scrum classes.

 

We made this video to help people learn more about Rocket Nine Solution's style of leading Certified ScrumMaster and Certified Scrum Product Owner training. 

 

Please click here to learn about Scott Dunn's background and why he is so passionate about agile.

 

 

From an agile coach: "When my ScrumMaster told me he wanted to take a CSM class, from what I know about you and your classes, I thought you were likely to focus on servant leadership more than other trainers, so I sent him your way.  He came by my desk this morning ecstatic about his experience and the impression you left on him!  Sounds like the slide-less format is being well received.  I'm happy to hear you're experimenting with alternative teaching styles and holding classes that push the boundaries of a typical CSM experience!  Really great work you're doing."

 

As a bonus, we wrap up some of our classes with a real life multi-sprint Scrum project, applying what you've been learning through building and programming robotics using the the Lego Mindstorm EV3. You can get an idea about how cool this is in the video link above.

"Just wanted to say thanks again for running this 2 day class.  I've learned a great deal from you and you are one heck of an instructor.  I will definitely recommend you to some of my colleagues for the CSM course.  Anyhow, I just took the exam and passed it!! :-)    

 

This two-day ScrumMaster certification course provides everything you need to get started with Scrum. The largest and fastest-growing Agile project management methodology, Scrum is a simple framework that has a small set of interrelated practices and rules, is not overly prescriptive and enables more effective teams almost immediately.

 

This course shares industry-tested practices for evolving Product Backlogs, planning your Releases and Sprints, tracking and reporting progress, and developing continuous improvement cycles. Participants will learn how to effectively plan and run daily Scrum Meetings, Sprint Planning Meetings, Sprint Reviews, Retrospectives, and more.
 
Upon completion of the course and a post-course online evaluation, participants are registered as Certified ScrumMasters (CSMs). Registration includes a two-year membership in the Scrum Alliance, (www.scrumalliance.org) where valuable ScrumMaster material and information are available.

 

Lunch, snacks, coffee and drinks are provided both days.

 

"Great course to take me from very basic Scrum knowledge to confidence that I can implement on my own."

 

This course is 15 Category 3 PDU's and 16 Scrum Education Units towards the Certified Scrum Professional credential.
