Certified ScrumMaster

About the Course

This Certified ScrumMaster® (CSM) course is an intensive deep dive into the world's most popular Agile method: Scrum. It is an immersive learning experience emphasising hands-on participation through a mix of interactive seminars, group discussions, team activities, games and role-plays.

We use highly immersive adult learning techniques such as visual modelling, simulations, role-plays and 'Training from the Back of the Room' activities to enable self-directed learning and enhanced retention.

Unlike Scrum courses with other trainers, this course offers a Trial Scrum Exam on day 1 with answers discussed day 2. This provides you with clear feedback on your Scrum knowledge in preparation for the post-course Certification Exam.

This course is organised and run using Scrum as a management framework. This allows for feedback and flexibility as well as experiencing Scrum in action throughout the course.

You will learn:

  • The philosophy, values and principles that guide you in becoming more Agile.
  • The nature of principles such as Empirical Process Control, Iteration, Timeboxing and Self-organisation that provide an effective model for working in a complex environment.
  • The Scrum roles in-depth and how they fit together to address Project Management.
  • How to establish an environment to foster high-performance agile delivery including creating a Definition of Done and keeping a Product Backlog in a well-groomed state.
  • Techniques for facilitating and participating in highly effective agile meetings each iteration and each day.
  • How to leverage review and retrospective activities to produce better fit solutions and continuously improve our Scrum delivery capability.
