Gregory Neil Smith

All CSM courses are taught by Certified Scrum Trainers. Taking a CSM course, passing the CSM test, and accepting the license agreement designates you as a Certified ScrumMaster, which indicates that you have been introduced to and understand the basic concepts you need to perform as a ScrumMaster or team member on a Scrum team. This course also satisfies two elements of the CSD track: Scrum Introduction and Elective.

This course offers the pragmatic guidance needed to understand and realize the holistic organization shaping power hidden within the simple Scrum framework. Like every other ScrumMaster course this one will teach you the Scrum basics. You will also gain a broad understanding of the Agile movement, the transformational values it expresses, and learn tips on driving their adoption through even the most challenging and resistant organizations. No amount of Agile values and Scrum practices will allow your teams to embrace change however if you do not also focus on lowering the cost of technical change. This Course also highlights the key software engineering practices you will need to understand in order to truly realize all of Scrum’s promised benefits.

Greg will teach you how the 3 key aspects of a Scrum adoption program; Scrum project/product management practices, XP software engineering practices and fundamental Agile software development values, must be combined to allow you, your teams and organization to truly realize the transformational power of Scrum.

Every participant will receive the following:

  • ScrumAlliance ScrumMaster Certification
  • 1 year membership in ScrumAlliance (a $50 value)
  • Includes access to additional ScrumAlliance resources and articles
  • Printed version of all course materials.
  • PMPs: You can receive 14 Project Management Institute PDUs for this course.

All registered participants will receive detailed instructions for accessing the facility prior to the course.
