This Scrum Master (CSM) course will give you a comprehensive understanding of the Scrum methodology while reviewing the behaviors expected of a Scrum Master.

Beginning with the history of agile development and moving through the disciplines promoted by Scrum, the Certified ScrumMaster (CSM) training course gives you a comprehensive understanding of the Scrum methodology while specifically reviewing the behaviors expected of a ScrumMaster. This two–day Certified ScrumMaster training course is suitable for those practicing or looking to practice the art of the ScrumMaster but is highly valuable for anyone involved in Scrum.

Even projects that have solid, well–defined project plans encounter some degree of change and waste. Shifting market conditions, budget cuts, staff restructuring, or any number of influences disrupt the best plan while contributing to customer dissatisfaction and staff discouragement. Moreover, projects that begin with changing or unclear requirements make it difficult to establish project expectations. Scrum is the agile development process that allows teams to deliver usable software periodically throughout the life of the project, evolving with new requirements as the project proceeds.
