Certified ScrumMaster

Learn the Scrum framework, Agile principles, and how to be a great ScrumMaster.

GK# 4882

Course Overview

TOP

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 percent of agile projects reporting using Scrum in one form or another, there is 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.
