The course will typically run from 8:30am-5:10pm each day. A continental breakfast, breaks and lunch will be provided.
Following the course, each participant is enrolled as a Certified ScrumMaster, which includes a one-year membership in the Scrum Alliance, where additional ScrumMaster-only material and information are available.
Who Should Attend:
This course has been taken by everyone connected to a Scrum Team. The CEO of a company, the COO, the CFO, the ScrumMaster, the Product Owner, Team members, managers, stakeholders. Everyone. With profit.
It is common for whole Teams (and related stakeholders) to take the course all at one time. This is very valuable.
As you can tell by the title of the course, it was originally designed to teach people to become ScrumMasters. Sometimes one person can take the course, learn about Scrum, already have the basic skills of a ScrumMaster, and go back and implement Scrum quickly with success.
You will get useful knowledge about how and why Scrum works.
The course includes many interactive exercises and small-group discussions. These will prepare you to plan your first sprint immediately after this class.
PMPs: You can receive 15 Professional Development Units (PDUs) for this course.
Participants will receive course materials (not books) at the course. The CSM course was formulated to train and certify ScrumMasters and is used worldwide for ScrumMaster training. In addition, participants should obtain (at their own expense) Agile Project Management with Scrum, by Ken Schwaber, which is required reading for the course. You may also wish to obtain the primary Scrum book, Agile Software Development with SCRUM by Schwaber and Beedle, on which the course is based.
Of course, there will be updated material and training exercises in the course which you cannot get from books. A lising of probable topic and other materials will be made available upon registering for the course, so you can look it over and be prepared for the session. Preparation and even experience helps, but if you have a chance to read only the Scrum Guide (about 14 pages to read), you will have enough preparation.
