Certified ScrumMaster Class! – in Chicago, IL


Formula Ink Innovative Learning
Bringing Culture to Corporate Training


Scrum is an Agile framework for completing complex projects. Scrum originally was formalized for software development projects, but it works well for any complex, innovative scope of work. This class goes beyond just theory, as we use a project simulation to apply using Scrum right in the class. This class is also open to public attendees.

In the CSM course, you will learn:

  • How the Scrum framework compares to other methods, such as waterfall
  • How to identify when to use Scrum
  • A Scrum team’s three roles and responsibilities
  • Scrum meetings, including Sprint Planning, Daily Scrum, Sprint Review, Sprint Retrospective, and Product Backlog Refinement
  • Scrum artifacts, including the Product Backlog, Sprint Backlog, and Product Increment
  • Beyond theory into real world application
