Agile Actors #learning is organising a 2-day Professional Scrum Master course delivered by Europe’s first Professional Scrum Master Trainer, Ralph Jocham.
The Professional Scrum Master program is a complete revision by Ken Schwaber of his Certified ScrumMaster (CSM) training, that originates from 2002. The revision was performed as part of the foundation and community-driven evolution of Scrum.org.
Participants of the course will get insights in the use and application of the Scrum framework for maximizing Value, productivity and the Total Cost of Ownership of software products. Students are being taught an empirical mindset via team-based exercises.
The training might be interesting to all involved in software development upon the Scrum framework, but has been specifically conceived for those responsible within an organization for running or introducing Scrum.
Course topics include:
- Basics of Scrum
- Scrum theory and evolution
- The Scrum framework: meetings, time-boxing, roles and artifacts
- The cultural change introduced by Scrum
- Self-organizing and multidisciplinary Teams
- Scrum and planning
- Scaling of Scrum
Included in the training is a voucher for the online Professional Scrum Master I assessment.
