Certified Scrum Master Workshop

Seminar #76101 Classroom
(Read reviews)

Learn, understand, and execute the three overarching areas of change under Scrum: iterative development, self-management, and visibility.

In just two days, get everything you need for greater project success as a ScrumMaster: Methods, roles, and best practices for your own projects.

You'll begin with the history of Agile development and quickly move on to the specific disciplines promoted by Scrum. Plus, gain a comprehensive understanding of Scrum methodology while specifically reviewing the behaviors expected of a ScrumMaster. Scrum helps you find work-arounds for issues that derail traditional projects. Even projects with solid, well-defined plans encounter some degree of change and waste. Shifting market conditions, budget cuts, staff restructuring and other factors disrupt plans and contribute to customer dissatisfaction and staff discouragement.

Furthermore, if your project involves changing or unclear requirements it becomes difficult to establish project expectations. Scrum is an Agile development process that accounts for such hurdles from the start and allows a team to deliver usable software periodically throughout the project lifecycle. This iterative approach is able to absorb change and adapt to new requirements much more effectively than many of the development methods currently practiced.
