Certified Scrum Master (CSM) Training Course | September | London
Event on 2017-09-18 08:30:00
A fully immersive, hands-on Certified Scrum Master (CSM) Training course This two-day Certified Scrum Master training course is structured around the Scrum values, principles and practices, using a blend of lecture, interactive exercises, and participant dialog. There are no powerpoint slides; the focus is on learning through action, activity, and conversation, allowing the new ideas to take root, and have the potential to grow within each participant’s context. Scrum is not a formula to be memorised, but rather a journey to undertake. "The course exceeded my expectations as I had thought it would have been mainly focused around a dull PowerPoint presentation and taking notes. But I was wrong, the course was very lively and interactive which really helped me understand Scrum (and also pass the test!)." - Hameda What You Will Learn Each student is taught to assume the responsibilities of a ScrumMaster. By the end of the workshop participants will understand the Scrum framework well enough to return to work and take up the role of ScrumMaster, or to apply the principles and practices from any other role in the organisation, e.g. developer, tester, manager, director. More specifically, participants will have the following skills: Facilitate all Scrum ceremonies: refinement, planning, daily scrum, review and retrospective; Be able to recognise organisational impediments that break the creative flow of a development team; Work with the product owner and/or customer on maximizing ROI and to meet their objectives using Scrum; Improve the work of the development team by facilitating creativity and empowerment, and guide the team members to improve their engineering practices so each increment of functionality is potentially shippable; Foster a collaborative relationship between the teams and the product owner/customer to meet the needs of the business; Work with managers, directors and executives to help them understand how to support the Scrum initiative. Participants will also have sufficient information to easily pass the CSM test. Course Agenda This CSM workshop is taught according to the Agile Manifesto, the Scrum Guide and the CSM Learning Objectives. Participants are expected to familiarise themselves with all three documents prior to attending the workshop. In order to live up to the Scrum ideal of completion, and to experience collaboration and fast feedback the CSM test will be done during the workshop, after lunch on day two. Participants will pair to take the test. "The course was great not only did I learn a lot but I thoroughly enjoyed it. I don't know the set up for other Scrum courses, but the level of engagement and encouragement from the all participants and coach was excellent." - Isher What you will receive: Electronic copy of all course materials; Certificate upon passing; 2 years Membership to the Scrum Alliance; Free access to half-day ScrumMaster Clinics, which will support your journey towards excellence, and if required towards the next level of Scrum Alliance certification; For PMI PMPs, this course provides 14 Category B PDUs; Membership to the Adventures with Agile community and access to the best agile and lean meetups in London to help you on your agile journey for continuous improvement; Tasty lunch, teas, coffees and water throughout the day.
