Beginning with the history of agile development and moving through the disciplines promoted by Scrum, this ScrumMaster (CSM) training course will give you a comprehensive understanding of the Scrum methodology while specifically reviewing the behaviors expected of a ScrumMaster. This 2–day Certified ScrumMaster training course is suitable for those practicing or looking to practice the art of the ScrumMaster, but is highly valuable for anyone involved in Scrum (Managers, Team Members, Product Managers, etc.).

Even projects that have solid, well–defined project plans encounter some degree of change and waste. Shifting market conditions, budget cuts, staff restructuring, or any number of influences will disrupt the best plan while contributing to customer dissatisfaction and staff discouragement. Moreover, projects that begin with changing or unclear requirements make it difficult to even establish project expectations. Scrum is the agile development process that allows teams to deliver usable software periodically throughout the life of the project, evolving with new requirements as the project proceeds.

"I found in this training what I expected and what I was looking for. [The instructor] was a great motivator and excellent teacher." - A. Mascelloni

"[The instructor] did a great job teaching the course. Using all of the activities that involved us students to learn and experience the different techniques really helped envision the goal of each roll in the scrum cycle. Was really satisfied with this course." - R. Nikolich
