Certified ScrumMaster Training – Course Description:
LeadingAgile’s Certified ScrumMaster Training course is a hands-on two-day learning experience. The course is divided up by 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 that is prioritized by participants at the start of each Sprint. During training, each attendee will work through four iterations, experiencing every step of the Scrum workflow. Each module includes group and/or individual exercises to reinforce the learning and help provide the participants with concrete practice in using Scrum. Our instructor, Dave Prior, will provide numerous examples and stories about what happens when you step out of the classroom and practice Scrum in the wild.
Who Should Attend?
The 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.
