The Certified ScrumMaster (CSM) training class is a learning experience that provides students a full immersion into Agile principles and the concepts and practices that define the Scrum framework.
Understanding the principles that form the foundation of Agile is at least as important as understanding the practices common to each agile framework, whether Scrum, Kanban or any other framework. The training blends an overview of key principles from Lean and Agile with an in-depth discussion of the four key practices necessary for Agile to work. After an introduction to Scrum, the most commonly applied agile framework with over 70% of agile projects reporting using Scrum in one form or another, we use a simulation - the Lego Scrum City simulation - to help participants immediately put theory into practice.
The simulation provides vivid and memorable experiences that tightly mirror those that new teams experience when adopting Scrum in real life. Emerging the needs of an agile approach through actual experience is much more powerful than simply describing the process in detail. The simulation locks in the learning and drives a much deeper understanding of why critical agile practices exist. Teams that have experienced this simulation exercise repeatedly draw from their experiences here in the weeks and months that follow.
Upon completion of the class, students will be eligible to take the Certified ScrumMaster exam and become Certified ScrumMasters (CSM).
Over the years, agile42 has delivered Scrum & Agile training to thousands of professionals worldwide, with consistenly excellent ratings from participants. In all our trainings we use techniques from Accelerated Learning and in particular principles and concepts from Training from the Back of the Room. Our partcipants stay engaged throughout the class, learn by doing, and have fun along the way. "When learners talk and teach, they learn." (Sharon Bowman).
The course is designed for entire product/project delivery teams, not only Scrum Masters, as well as anyone likely to work with or on an agile team. It is ideal for teams or organizations new to Agile who need practical and memorable instruction.
