This two-day course not only provides the fundamental principles of Scrum, it also gives participants hands-on experience using Scrum. This course puts theory into action through a variety of exercises. During the course, attendees will learn why such a seemingly simple process such as Scrum can have such profound effects on an organization.
Participants gain practical experience working with Scrum tools and activities such as:
- The product backlog
- Sprint backlog
- Daily Scrum meetings
- Sprint planning meeting
- Burndown charts.
Participants leave knowing how to apply Scrum to all sizes of projects, from a single collocated team to a large, highly distributed team. Following successful completion of the course, you will be qualified and ready to pass the Scrum Alliance assessment exam. This multiple-choice, online test is required to become a Certified ScrumMaster, which includes a two-year membership in the Scrum Alliance, where additional ScrumMaster-only material and information are available. This course earns you 15 PDUs (Category A) within the PMI. This course also earns you 16 SEUs (Category B) within the Scrum Alliance. PDUs and SEUs can be used toward PMP, PMI-ACP, CSP and other certifications.
