By the end of the class, you will be completely prepared to pass the CSM exam, not because you’ve memorized facts, but because you have internalized and practiced the concepts needed to successfully implement Scrum when you get back to work.
CSM training is divided up into four Sprints in order to allow participants to fully immerse themselves in the Scrum framework. The learning modules for the course are listed in a Product Backlog which includes each Learning Objective (LO’s) established by the Scrum Alliance for this class. Throughout the class students will be reviewing the LO’s and be asked to accept them if they feel that the topic is complete. This is our way of QAing each topic and making sure that the participants know we have met the class Learning Objectives. In addition to this, the class includes many topics and exercises which are not listed in the LO’s but are a big part of making sure that each participant leaves the class with tools and practices they can bring back to work and implement right away.
LeadingAgile ScrumMaster Training Includes:
- Two-year membership to the Scrum Alliance
- CSM Exam Fee
- Digital copy of the course materials
Who should attend?
The ScrumMaster course is a great fit for anyone new to Scrum or who has been practicing it in the field and needs to reacquaint themselves with the Scrum framework. If you are coming from a traditional (waterfall) background, are skeptical about, or struggling with getting your head around Agile, this class is for you. With Dave’s experience transitioning from traditional project management to Agile, he takes special care to try and pave an easier way for the participants who are struggling to adopt Agile. That intent, coupled with the experience of all three of our trainers in helping others make the journey into a new way of approaching work provides the framework in which we approach the topic of how to succeed as a ScrumMaster.
During this course, participants will cover:
- Agile Overview
- Scrum Theory
- Scrum Roles
- Scrum Meetings
- Scrum Artifacts
- Definition of Done
- Scrum Tracking and Reporting
- Agile Facilitation
- Agile Coaching
- Servant Leadership
- Coaching the Product Owner
- Impediment Removal
- Coaching the Organization
Upon successful completion of the course, participants will be required to successfully complete the Scrum Alliance CSM Assessment test before receiving their certification. This is an online test you can complete when you are ready, it must be taken within 90 days of your class. Participants who complete this course qualify for 14 PDUs. Registration includes 2-year certification with Scrum Alliance.
