Course Overview: The Scrum Alliance Certified ScrumMaster® (CSM) Certification is the most well-established and respected cert in the Agile Community. It is often the starting point on a journey towards agility or a reflection point for experienced agilists. Grow-Lean®s CSM is delivered as a fun, interactive, hands-on, workshop.
You can take the certifying exam immediately after the class and you will be a Certified ScrumMaster® after passing the exam. More importantly, you will be better able to implement or grow agile in your organization and advance your career.
You will learn how the Scrum framework can dramatically improve time to market, quality, employee satisfaction, customer value and company ROI. You will also learn that every organization, team, and individual needs to take a different path on the road to agility.
You will gain a practical understanding of the roles, artifacts, and ceremonies of Scrum, via hands-on exercises, discussion, fun games, and immersion.
Roles: ScrumMaster, Product Owner, Development Team Member
You will learn how Scrum exists in a larger organizational context, and how it is similar to and different from, traditional waterfall projects. In addition to Scrum, we will review other influential Agile Frameworks.
Extreme Programming: Scrum superset for engineering excellence, including Test Driven Development, refactoring (keeping a code base clean) and pair working.
ES, LeSS, SAFe®:Scaling frameworks that provide additional roles, ceremonies, and artifacts.
Lean: The mother of agile, focus on value, create flow, optimize
Lean Startup®: An approach to mitigating business risks by getting to market quickly with a release that is also an experiment, learning from it, and adapting based on learnings.
Exercises, discussions, simulations, games (yes, we really mean games), case studies, examples and fun (yes, even jokes) are interwoven throughout the course to illustrate the principles being taught in an immersive, engaging manner so that you learn while enjoying yourself.
