Event description


Learn Scrum by Using Scrum

In this two-day, hands-on workshop, you'll learn Scrum by using Scrum, the most widely-used form of Agile. Short, focused presentations cover the Values, Roles, Artifacts and Events of Scrum. Beyond the basics, we also explore Scrum in action - facilitating team interactions, working with the team's Backlog of work, and getting work "Done" (or perhaps it's Done-Done)!

Get Hands-On Experience with Scrum

This course is not a Powerpoint snooze-fest. You will reinforce concepts through multiple immersive exercises, including a complex, multi-team Scrum simulation. Get a taste of what you'll experience, and how fast the workshop progresses in this time-lapse video of one of the key workshop exercises:

By the conclusion of this dynamic workshop - you will be prepared with the skills, knowledge, and experience to not only explain Scrum to colleagues, clients or interviewers, but also to put Scrum into action with your team. Become a catalyst for change by helping your teams and programs apply these concepts to become resilient, learning organizations able to thrive in today’s emerging markets.

Get your CSM® and More!

This workshop includes:

  • Scrum Alliance Certified ScrumMaster CSM® Exam fee

  • Two-year membership in the Scrum Alliance, the largest, most established and influential professional membership and certification organization in the Agile community

  • 14 PMI PDUs for PMPs

  • 14 of the 21 contact hours needed for a PMI-ACP credential

Who Should Attend

This course is appropriate for Scrum Masters, as well as Product Owners, Scrum Team Members and Managers interested to understand and apply the fundamentals of how Scrum and Agile work at the team level. It's equally valuable for folks new to the world of Agile/Scrum, as well as people whose organizations have been practicing some form of Agile for a while and need a "reset."

Workshop Agenda

The workshop includes all the material required by the Scrum Alliance for its Certified ScrumMaster CSM® certification, along with stories, tips, tricks and practices to take the theory of Scrum and put it into effective action in your organization.

The Fine Print


  • How soon can I get my CSM® certification? On completing your participation in the full workshop, a link will be emailed to you from the Scrum Alliance to access their online certification exam. We often see workshop participants complete their certification exam and become Certified Scrum Masters within 24 hours of completing the workshop.

  • Can I Miss Several Hours of the Workshop and Still be Certified? No. If you miss more than 1 hour of the workshop, you will not be eligible for certification, and you will be welcome to attend the rest of the workshop.

  • Will you feed us? YES! We believe people learn best when they are fully hydrated, caffeinated, fed and engaged in the workshop. Expect a light continental breakfast each morning, lunch, snacks and plenty of coffee, tea and water.

  • What do I need to bring to class? Just you! You won't need your laptop, tablet or even your phone. But we understand that you'll probably want to peek at your email during a break or at lunch.
