Certified ScrumMaster (CSM)

 

Course Description:

Understanding the principles that form the foundation of Agile is at least as important as understanding the practices common to each agile framework, whether Scrum, Kanban, or any other framework. The training blends an overview of key principles from Lean and Agile with an in-depth discussion of the four key practices necessary for Agile to work. After an introduction to Scrum, the most commonly applied agile framework with over 70 percent of agile projects reporting using Scrum in one form or another, there is a simulation (the Lego Scrum City simulation) to help participants immediately put theory into practice.The simulation provides vivid and memorable experiences that tightly mirror those that new teams experience when adopting Scrum in real life.

 

What You’ll Learn in Class:

  • Principles underlying agile methodologies and how to apply them in a team context

  • Connect agile principles to the core lean disciplines and understand how to apply lean and agile principles to software/product development

  • Trends driving agile adoption and the benefits of an iterative and incremental approach  

  • Gain a common vocabulary and understanding of the Scrum framework

  • Roles and responsibilities of the ScrumMaster, Product Owner and Development Team

  • Effectively facilitate Scrum meetings: daily scrum (stand-up), sprint/iteration planning, review and retrospectives

  • Apply the Agile & Scrum principles and practices to build a real product

  • Work with others on an agile team, using the iterative process to rapidly learn and change how the team works

 

Who Needs to Attend:

All members of product/project delivery teams, not only ScrumMasters, but also people likely to work with or on an agile team. It is ideal for teams or organizations new to Agile who need practical and memorable instruction.
