Certified ScrumMaster® Training & Certification Program
This two-day seminar is designed to give aspiring and beginning ScrumMasters and team members the foundations of Scrum and Agile practice. Chock full of exercises, the seminar creates lasting memories and learnings you can carry through into your team so you can avoid common Agile pitfalls. The seminar is designed and taught by Jim Coplien, author of Organizational Patterns, which Pete Behrens says “identif[ies] the key criteria leading to successful efforts and high-performing teams,” that Michael Beedle calls “the first documentation that ever existed on true Agile development,” and about which Linda Rising says “the penalty for not knowing these patterns can be severe.” The seminar draws on the principles and deep structures of these Agile foundations to go beyond rote learning and sound bites to a deep and lasting foundation for software development excellence. The course draws on years of broad experience with international and multisite development.

This course is for everyone who wants to learn more about how people work effectively on teams to build things together. While Scrum enjoyed its initial success in software, we’re branching out to help all endeavors make their work environments more powerful and enjoyable.

Managers will learn how they can support teams, and Project Managers will learn new ways of looking at product development.
