Course Description:
Our Certified Scrum Master Workshop is taught with a mixture of discussion, activities, and a practicum that is designed to make the material "sticky"; so that you retain what you've learned. You will be engaged, learning and involved for the two days.

A Certified Scrum Master helps project teams properly use Scrum, increasing the likelihood of the project's overall success. CSMs understand Scrum values, practices, and applications and provide a level of knowledge and expertise above and beyond that of typical project managers. CSMs act as "servant leaders," helping the rest of the Scrum team work together and learn the Scrum framework. CSMs also protect the team from both internal and external distractions.
