"I don't really believe in crash-courses, and I attended the CSM seminar as I just wanted the certificate. However, I was surprised to see how much Tobias was able to teach me in such a short time. His method works. Highly recommended." — CSM participant
A fully immersive, hands-on workshop
This two-day Certified Scrum Master training course is structured around the Scrum values, principles and practices, using a blend of lecture, interactive exercises, and participant dialog. Scrum is taught holistically, with each iteration delving deeper into the framework. There are no powerpoint slides, and little lecture; the focus is on learning through action, activity, and conversation, allowing the new ideas to take root, and have the potential to grow within each participant's context. Scrum is not a formula to be memorised, but rather a journey to undertake.
Tobias taught my ScrumMaster course back in 2009 and how he did it was excellent—a master class in learning by doing. Without doubt the best trainer I've come across. — Rob Curtis, Curtis Consulting, Finland
What you will learn
Each student is taught to assume the responsibilities of a ScrumMaster. By the end of the workshop participants will understand the Scrum framework well enough to return to work and take up the role of ScrumMaster, or to apply the principles and practices in their own role within the organisation, e.g. developer, tester, manager, director. More specifically, participants will have the following skills:
Who should attend?
The course is suitable for everyone who is about to start using Scrum or has already gathered some experience and wants to deepen their understanding of Scrum. The ScrumMaster role is the focus of the course, however it is suitable for team members or managers who would like an introduction to Scrum.
No specific experience is required but please read the Agile Manifesto, the Scrum Guide and the CSM Learning Objectives before attending the course. If you'd like to read more, The Elements of Scrum is highly recommended. Important: be sure to bring a laptop or tablet with you on day two in order to register with the Scrum Alliance and take the online CSM test.
"Enlightening and amusing. Tobias's Scrum training was one of the best seminars I've ever taken—and I do Executive Training frequently with the brightest minds on the planet. I only wish I would have taken it years before!" — Raul Cristian Aguirre, CEO, Tango/04
The CSM workshops are offered in partnership with Adventures with Agile (AWA) and are held in central London, unless otherwise noted.
