Scrum Alliance Certified Scrum Master
Scrum is a simple framework that empowers people to higher performance and allows organisations to maximise value to customers and return on investment, where management take a less directive and a more leadership-based role, supporting small multi-disciplined teams and removing anything that stands in their way. It uses frequent inspection points to implement change based on experience and feedback.
Because Scrum is simple, it requires a different way of thinking when compared to traditional project management. It also requires the application of a key set of principles to guide the implementation of Scrum to realize its benefits in complex environments.
This interactive Certified ScrumMaster class is a great course for anybody who is new to Scrum or applying it within their organisation and covers in-depth the full Scrum Framework, Scrum practices, roles, artefacts and the values and principles that underpin it. The course also covers many agile practices that support Scrum including User Stories and relative estimation as well as examining strategies for scrum masters to coach the product owner, development team and the rest of the organisation.
The course builds on a combination of interactive exercises, practical real-life examples, and lively discussion and will equip you with the knowledge required to understand Scrum in depth so that you can be an effective ScrumMaster or Scrum team member.
