During the Certified Scrum Master (CSM) training, all aspects of Scrum will be covered both in theory and practice. You will learn about the Scrum values and principles and the way in which these contribute to the success of your project. By means of group exercises throughout the course and a 1-hour Scrum project on the second day, you will gain practical knowledge and you will experience what it is like to work in a Scrum team..
Topics you can expect are:
- The metrics offered by Scrum (Product Backlog, Burndown Chart)
- How to introduce Scrum without the need to drastically change your organization
- How to scale a Scrum project from one team to multiple teams in a distributed (off-shore) environment.
Attending this training and completing an online exam is what it takes to become a Certified Scrum Master (CSM). This certification is granted by the Scrum Alliance and includes a one-year membership of the Scrum Alliance. As member of the Scrum Alliance you have access to additional material and information only available to members. The CSM certification is valid for two years.
The Certified Scrum Master (CSM) training is intended for everyone who is (interested in) working in or with a Scrum team. Regardless of your job title: you can be a tester, manager, analyst, programmer or ...(fill in your own job title).
The only thing we would strongly like to recommend is to have at least basic understanding of Scrum. This CSM course does cover the basics as well, but you and your fellow team members will get the most out of these two days when these basics can be treated as repetition instead of introduction. Read some books on the subject, learn from your colleagues who might already be working with Scrum and of course, follow our one-day Scrum Foundation training.
