Purpose of this course

Through group exercises and discussions, our Scrum Master course will explore the roles, ceremonies and artefacts of the Scrum Guide. Our dual aims are to get you up-and-running with Scrum as soon as possible and to prepare you for the optional Professional Scrum Master I exam.

Who is this course for

This course is aimed at those wishing to coach and facilitate Agile teams and for those wishing to introduce Scrum to their organisation.

You will learn how to
  • Build and coach successful Scrum teams.
  • Facilitate key Scrum ceremonies. 
  • Mentor the team, stakeholders and the organisation on the Scrum framework.
  • Identify which areas of work are suitably for Scrum and which might benefit from a more plan driven approach.
Benefits for your organisation

When creating complex products and services, traditional plan-driven approaches have long been associated with high levels of risk and delay. Scrum addresses this by fostering an iterative and incremental approach to value generation – releasing benefits earlier, curtailing risk and retaining an ability to respond to evolving customer needs and emergent technologies.

Benefits for you as an individual

In addition to learning to about Scrum, you’ll also learn some specific techniques to help you coach a Scrum team towards achieving success. As part of the Scrum Master training we’ll also cover Agility in its broader sense and touch upon other manifestations of Agile, such as Extreme Programming and Kanban.
