Certified ScrumMaster Course

Scrum is an agile management framework for delivering value, reducing risk and driving continuous improvement. The framework is simple in its mechanics but can be difficult to apply as it requires a shift in team culture. Therefore in this certified course you will not only learn the mechanics, but you will apply Scrum as it was intended so that you have the best chance of being able to implement it effectively in your organisation.
During the first day, attendees will learn the basics of Scrum and the principles on which it is based through a series of exercises and discussions. The second day explores the framework's Rhythms, Rituals, and wRitings in more depth, and introduces some of the more common practices used by Scrum teams.
What you will learn:
• A comprehensive definition of Scrum
• How Scrum is underpinned by the Agile Manifesto and agile principles
• Where Scrum is applicable
• Roles in a Scrum team, with special focus on role of the ScrumMaster
• How to plan for a sprint
• How the team works before, during and after a sprint
• Release Planning and how to track progress
All attendees will receive a complimentary copy of Mike Cohn's book Succeeding with Agile: Software Development Using Scrum
