Certified ScrumMaster Workshop (CSM)

2 days

Description

Beginning with the history of agile development and moving through the disciplines promoted by Scrum, this Scrum Master (CSM) training course will give you a comprehensive understanding of the Scrum methodology while specifically reviewing the behaviors expected of a Scrum Master. This 2–day Certified Scrum Master training course is suitable for those practicing or looking to practice the art of the Scrum Master, 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.
