Scrum certification goes virtual

The Scrum Alliance announcing on-line courses for certification immediately prompted me to redesign my curriculum. The focus in the redesign is to provide the highest quality learning journey possible.

Active and Experiential

Learning through activities always improves the journey. Short lectures and videos are in both my in-person and virtual courses. Nothing long and boring. The Scrum Master course explores concepts through activities for deeper and longer lasting knowledge. The Product Owner course takes on a consumer-facing problem to solve and experiences the role first-hand.

Making connections

Quality learning also increases as participants connect to each other. Working through activities in small groups allows learning about- and from- each other. Limiting the course to 18 helps forge stronger connections between everyone. The small group leaves time for socializing as we move between groups and activities.

Differences from in-person

With a purely virtual journey time is spent orienting to the tools used along the way. There are tools for working and communicating together as well as to gather feedback. Shorter work periods and more frequent breaks are delivered in 25 minute periods with 5 minutes in between and a 30 minute meal break. Be prepared to have your video on and to be called upon.

Tired of being seen as some sort of Scrum administrator?

Ok this isn’t project management. At least as a PM you made decisions. Now it’s booking meetings, taking notes, and keeping the work-tracking tool updated. There’s more to you and this framework and you’re ready to prove it.

Show your mastery with Scrum

Enhance your ability to deal with the detractors and those who just want to play the devil’s advocate. Help organizations evaluate different scaling approaches. Build trust with your team and be seen as an effective collaborator. Bring in better ways to organize and manage product backlogs.

And get ready to have fun

This course relies on your participation. The focus is on the participants learning from each other and the two days are packed with activities.

What this course covers
