Scrum helps thousands of organizations improve their processes through Agility. As a Certified ScrumMaster, you’ll be an integral part of that success — without having to suffer through a single PowerPoint slide.
This training will teach you everything you need to know to effectively apply Scrum tools and techniques. You’ll also graduate prepared to pass your ScrumMaster Certification test — guaranteed. 99% of Adam’s graduates pass on their first try!
In terms of format, Adam uses Scrum to teach Scrum, combining your training with practical experience. The course is split into two focused work periods — or ‘sprints’ — each lasting a day. Each sprint has its own backlog (a detailed description of required accomplishments) and you’ll track your progress towards your certification using burndown charts.
Learning the language of Scrum is part of the course, so don’t worry if all that sounds jargon heavy.
The training maintains a comfortable, sustainable pace as required by Scrum. Each sprint includes at least two mini-breaks (at around 10:30am and 2:30pm) and a longer lunch break (around noon). If you need a personal break at any other time, you’re welcome to take it. Just don’t miss more than 60 minutes of the two-day workshop or we can’t certify you.
Adam’s CSM class covers all the topics required by the Scrum Alliance, including:
No prior knowledge of Scrum is required. If you’d like to make the most of our time together, however, we encourage you to complete these interactive training modules beforehand. Doing so should only take you about ninety minutes.
After completing Adam’s course, you’ll receive a link from the Scrum Alliance to take the 36 question, multiple choice test online. There’s no additional fee and 99% of Adam’s graduates pass on their first attempt.
Adam hates taking tests, too.
Understanding your trepidation, he’ll do everything he can to make the Scrum Alliance test as painless as possible. To start, you’ll get to take a full practice exam at the end of the training. If that test proves challenging for you, Adam will make himself available to coach you by phone, Skype, or email.
99% of Adam’s graduates pass the CSM test on their first try because they’ve been properly prepared. You will also be prepared. Properly.
Yes. And it is delicious. We provide a light breakfast, snacks, and a full lunch.
We will do our best to take dietary requests into consideration. You are also welcome to bring in your own food if you prefer.
This two-day class is appropriate for anyone interested in applying the Scrum framework effectively and learning more about Agile. We welcome the technical and non-technical; absolute beginners and those with more experience; introverts and extroverts; managers, executives, owners, developers, designers, and most multicellular life forms.
