Certified Scrum Master
Scrum is the agile development process that allows teams to deliver usable software periodically throughout the life of a project, absorbing change and new requirements as a project proceeds.
Traditional software project management methods fix requirements in an effort to control time and cost; what we’ve learned after decades of building software is that requirements often need to change based on market conditions or the reality of the emerging system. Scrum allows organizations to shift requirements in a manner that does not disrupt the team. Scrum teams make progress in a series of sprints, or fixed time-boxes of usually one to four weeks. Moreover, delivering products using Scrum relies heavily on the collaboration between the team and the product owner to create the right product for the customer in a lean fashion. A Scrum product owner manages and stages the product backlog, which is a prioritized list of features for the product, so that the team is always working on the most valuable items first. The ScrumMaster helps synchronize the business needs with the delivery team’s capabilities and provides visibility into this progression at all times. Beginning with the history of agile development and moving through the disciplines promoted by Scrum, participants will gain a comprehensive understanding of the Scrum methodology.
This course is facilitated by a Certified Scrum Trainer from the Scrum Alliance, which fulfills the educational requirement for Scrum Master Certification and prepares those who attend to pass the Scrum Master exam.
