Certified Scrum Master (English, interactive, 2 days)
All CSM courses are taught by Certified Scrum Trainers. Taking a CSM course, passing the CSM test, and accepting the license agreement designates you as a Certified ScrumMaster, which indicates that you have been introduced to and understand the basic concepts you need to perform as a ScrumMaster or team member on a Scrum team. This course also satisfies two elements of the CSD track: Scrum Introduction and Elective.
2-days intensive training as preparation for the Scrum Master certification
Do you want to know what is Scrum, why does it work and how it helps you to be more productive? Why do teams with Scrum clearly deliver more functionality and with better quality?
Then you should experience this training!
Scrum as management framework for the product development promotes collaboration between all involved people to a new level.
Within the training you experience this type of collaboration. The training is 100% interactive and fully focused on your learning success.
„ [...]Shortly: It has helped me a lot. I had read a few things, but you training showed me clearly that theory and practical experience are quite another cup of tea. […] And again and again I find that your training helps me a lot – not due to the knowledge that was transferred, but more because of the attitude of Scrum which you lived in the training, the way of thinking. And this is very helpful. For this I would like to thank you, this was a great training :-)!“ - Golo Roden, Wissensvermittler und Technologieberater für .NET, Codequalität und agile Methoden
