In two short days you can learn the mastery of Scrum and become a servant leader to take your Scrum team to the next level. You will learn, understand and execute on the three overarching principles behind Scrum: iterative development, self– management, and visibility. This class is perfect for those practicing or wishing to practice the role of the ScrumMaster, but is also highly valuable for anyone involved in a Scrum development effort (manager, team members, product manager, etc.). The ScrumMaster is known as a coach, servant leader, facilitator, and sometimes, as the 'bulldozer'. ScrumMasters help provide teams with the things to do their job. A ScrumMaster is also responsible for coaching the team to do their best and produce the high quality that the ScrumMasters knows the team is capable of. The ScrumMaster is also responsible for helping to remove obstacles or impediments the team may be facing in favor of getting the commitment completed.

Learn the 'buzz-words' and the terminology that Scrum uses. During this 2-day course, you will learn effective ways to include your customer in the process to ensure they are satisfied with the outcome. You will acquire the knowledge to produce metrics, such as Burndown charts. You will understand how to better estimate a release and help your customer understand what they will get and when they will get it. This course provides fundamental knowledge through class exercises, including:

  • Team –building exercise
  • Writing agile requirements as user stories
  • Using relative estimation
  • Prioritization

This 2-day course gives you hands-on experience with best practices for incorporating the customer into your daily plan, establish a cadence for the team, the importance that the team plays in the plan, and how much it means to commit to a goal. Lively lectures combined with insightful demonstrations and realistic practice exercises provide you with the competence and confidence to improve the quality of your product. You'll gain a thorough understanding of the challenges faced everyday by the technology team and how you, as a ScrumMaster, can help overcome those obstacles. If you want to help your team be successful and use your coaching and facilitating skills to good use, you just have to take this course!
