Dave Prior—Certified Scrum Trainer, leads the virtual, two-day learning experience. In addition to the Scrum Alliance covered material, Dave brings his years of experience to the class with thought provoking examples and discussion of real-world scenarios via interactive exercises. By the end of the class you will easily be able to pass the test not because you’ve memorized facts but because you have internalized the concepts needed to successfully implement Scrum when you get back to work.
Use Scrum to Learn Scrum
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 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. Dave will provide numerous examples and stories about what happens when you step out of the classroom and practice Scrum in the wild.
