Scrum is the fastest growing area in the field of Project Management. There are over 550,000 Certified or Professional Scrum Masters in the world. There's no argument.
This is needed in the new fast moving world we live and work in.
This class gives you everything you need to successfully pass the Professional Scrum Master I (PSM) Exam, Scrum.org's alternative to ScrumAlliance.org's CSM.
This class is being offered for an investment of $500 per ticket, $400 for early bird ticket before 09/16/2016*.
This is less than half the normal course fee and is made possible through a collaboration of all Michigan Agile User Groups.
Students receive advice on how to pass this 80 question exam (which must be completed in an hour and has a 35% fail rate) on the first try.
A continental breakfast, lunch and snacks are included in your ticket. Doors open and breaksfast at 8:30am, learning starts at 9:00 am.
* (( Exam fee (not included in the course fee) is $150 and can be taken at any point after the training is complete. There is no education prerequisite required to sit for the Certified Professional Scrum Master exam when certifying as a PSM via Scrum.org. This is a content driven course designed to help you pass the PSM assessment (exam). Scrum.org is aware of the course, however, this course is not authorized by Scrum.org. ))
Course outline :
Scrum Overview & History
What is Scrum and why should we care?
Why does Scrum work and what are its core principles?
How and where is Scrum being successfully used?
Scrum Framework and Meetings
How Scrum theory is implemented using time-boxes, roles, rules, radiators and artefacts. How are these used effectively and how can they fall apart?
Scrum and Change
Scrum is different: where does it fit and what does this mean to my project and my organization? How do I best adopt Scrum given the change that is expected?
Scrum Teams are self-organizing, self-managed, self-governed, persistent and cross-functional; this is different from traditional development groups. How do we start with Scrum teams and how do we ensure their success?
Methods and difficulties.
Scrum is empirical so how can predictions be made, risk be controlled, and progress be tracked using Scrum? Predictability, risk management, reporting issues.
Scrum works well optimizing one team. It can also work for projects or product releases that involve hundreds or thousands of globally dispersed team members. However, many organizations are experiencing great pain trying to scale Scrum. We will show a simple framework that, when it is used properly, from our experience, scaling is best accomplished.( By the way, once you pass the exam, Microsoft® uses the PSM I assessment (exam) to validate your knowledge as part of its Silver and Gold Application Lifecycle Management (ALM) competencies. )
