Certified ScrumMaster from Scrum Alliance

5-6 Sept 2017 (also available 4-5 Dec) - €1,100 per seat
Dublin
2 days
Purpose: 

The industry-recognised Certified ScrumMaster Training is the perfect building block to educate and certify your people. Through exercises and peer discussions, attendees realise how much they rely on habits that lower productivity, quality, and return on investment. They also get to experience first-hand how a change to Scrum practises works and feels.

Through a mixture of class room study, exercises, pair discussions and real-world trainer experiences, an attendee will learn how a Scrum project works and how to facilitate and coach a Scrum project. Techniques we will investigate include Vision Creation, the use of the Product Backlog, Backlog Formatting Techniques, Story Point Estimation, and how to use this to formulate a release plan.

We’ll learn about how Sprint Backlogs (the lower level of planning in Scrum) can work and we’ll experience it for ourselves in a case study. Many people struggle to get the Daily Scrum ceremony working effectively, but you won’t – after hearing some of our primers for helping you maximise the benefit for the team from this key principle.

You will experience how to coach your team through planning and through the powerful inspect and adapt technique of retrospectives. How to report this information in a clear and simple format is the key objective of Burndown Charts – which we’ll discuss in depth. Finally, you will discover our learning in how to apply Scrum to an enterprise environment. Scaling and distribution will be the key areas of investigation in this final session.

With a course content and delivery technique consistently rated as “Excellent” by our attendees, our Private and Public CSM options should be considered an essential for any Agile training.
