Why learning CSM with Knowledge21?
Knowledge21’s classes are dynamic, engaging and based on real examples. We do prefer group discussions and a lot of interactions over a slide based lecture. We provide an environment for the exchange of experiences between the students and the trainer.
A Certified ScrumMaster® aims to become an expert in Scrum, by being knowledgeable about values, principles, practices, and techniques, taking Scrum Teams to the next level.
CSMs are “servant leaders”, helping the Scrum Team to achieve a high-performing state that raises the bar when it comes to do twice the work in half of the time. CSMs also protect the team from both internal and external distractions, focusing on what really matters.
