Certified ScrumMaster Workshop
Practical, Hands-on Scrum Training
This course gives the participants actual hands on experience with the basic practices of Scrum with a solid introduction to the principles that frame the practices of a successful agile team. The course is focused on the skills and attributes of a successful ScrumMaster.
The participants will get experience through a large Scrum simulation where they will practice and observe the role of ScrumMaster and the other major Scrum Roles. Teams will work together on a project to produce a product that will be presented to the stakeholders near the end of the course.

·Discussion and practice in dealing with organizational challenges
This course is aimed at individuals and teams new to Scrum and Agile Software Development or teams that need to level-set terms, understand the principles that drive Scrum and create a common understanding of the roles, meetings and artifacts of Scrum.
We believe that the key to a successful Scrum kickoff is a clear and universal understanding of the principals and practices of Scrum on the team. We also believe that while reading about Scrum is a good place to start, the level of understanding that is required to be successful is only achieved by doing Scrum. This workshop puts the participants into a Scrum driven project. The problem domain is one that most participants have never dealt with, thereby creating the opportunity for all participants to learn. When the goals of the Scrum project are presented, the participants know very little about how they will create a workable product in the short time they will have to complete the project.By using agile analysis, agile planning, effort sizing and team work they work together to create a product. Most participants are surprised at the results of their project.
This course is intended for software development teams and professionals. Scrum can be used on other types of projects. Consult with your Effective Agile Development Enterprise Coach for information about customizing this course for your team and organization.
All seats in this course include access to the Certified ScrumMaster exam at no additional charge. Completing the in-person class and passing the test are required for Certification. The exam is taken online via the Scrum Alliance, on your own time following the class. You will have 2 attempts and 60 days to pass the 35 multiple-choice question test following the class. Our trainers will be available to help you if you have trouble with the exam.
