Certified Scrum Master® (CSM) (Virtual)

June 15 @ 9:00 am - June 16 @ 5:00 pm CDT

Whether you are experienced or a new to agile, you will gain a fresh perspective. Serve and lead agile teams with confidence.

Instructor-led virtual classroom event.

Join us for this instructor-led training to learn how to succeed in a digital world. You will not only learn about Agile and Scrum, but you also get to experience best practices for remote collaboration. Our virtual classroom is designed for group interactions and supports different adult learning styles.

Most importantly, you will not be lectured to by a talking head on a video conference call.

This course is hands-on, interactive, and fun!

Learning by doing

Scrum is easy to understand, but difficult to master. Learning new skills requires an experiential environment where you can practice your newly acquired skills. Therefore, we don’t use dry lectures. More importantly, learning happens when you are having fun!

Our participants experience Scrum concepts and principles through case studies, games, simulations, group discussions, and role-playing exercises.

Know-Why, Know-What, Know-How

In this course we encourage constructive dialogue so you can gain deeper understanding about the why of agile, and Scrum values and principles. We go beyond canned responses and into deep practical aspects of implementing scrum in the real world.

You need a practical grasp of agile practices to be effective in your world of work. We engage in fun, interactive role-playing simulations. This helps you to be better prepared to handle even the most challenging situations in your real world of work.
