Event description

Description

Scrum is today the most popular Agile framework, used by organizations worldwide. Scrum is a simple yet incredibly powerful set of practices that help teams deliver products in short cycles, enable fast feedback, and create a culture of rapid adaptation to change. This class teaches the foundations of Agile and provides a solid understanding of the Scrum framework. Learn the essential concepts and tools of Scrum, including managing product backlogs, planning releases and sprints, tracking and reporting progress, and conducting stand-ups and retrospectives.

A Certified ScrumMaster® 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.

The Certified ScrumMaster class is aimed at those interested in pursuing a Scrum Alliance certification to attest their knowledge of Scrum. It is best suited for Managers, Scrum Masters, Project Managers, and Scrum Team Members.

This is a highly interactive class using experiental learning. Using a variety of short lectures and class exercises you will learn the core concepts and develop hands-on experience. We strive at creating a learning environment that is engaging and fun, and at making sure you walk out of the class with the practice and skillset needed to act as an effective Certified ScrumMaster.
