See What Our Students Are Saying

Less teacher to student than community of peers. Highly discussion based. Fewer demonstrations than CSM [Certified Scrum Master]. More focus on unique issues across multiple places of work than learning principles.

At mid day on Day 1, I felt that we had spent too much time on fundamentals of Scrum. For an A-CSM course, I expected to jump straight into more advanced topics. I enjoyed Day 2 more for that reason. I also realized that some so-called 'basic' topics are more nuanced than I thought.

As an inexperienced member of a Scrum Team, that is practicing Scrum, I found this course really helpful in providing me the foundation needed to further grow into a Product Ownership (Product Champion) role. I've been able to spot changes that I will be able to recommend to the team.

We were able to cover a lot of material in a short period of time. Dan made the course interactive which helped in the learning. I genuinely feel as though I learned how Scrum Mastering should be done and feel like I can explain it.

Great courses. Lots of info. Have learned actual meaning of some of the terminology, will be able to translate this to better use of my Teams.

This course was very insightful in that it helped me realize the Scrum process used at my company has flaws. It also helped me pin point these flaws.

I definitely feel more comfortable in regards to the process of Scrum. Dan is very much a Subject Matter Expert and it shows. I enjoyed the way Dan was able to break things down into real world examples.

Optional Reading

Exploring Scrum: The Fundamentals

Exploring Scrum: The Fundamentals

By Dan Rawsthorne and Doug Shimp

This book takes a deep, exploratory, look into the Scrum framework, and offers advice about how to think about it, and how to use it. Some of this advice is philosophical, some is pragmatic, some is practical, and some of it is controversial.

This book is not an introductory text.

Advanced Certified ScrumMaster Training Benefits

So you want to learn Scrum. But is training really worth it?
What can training give you that reading a few books can’t?

TIME = MONEY

Transforming your team or organization to a new methodology is a big undertaking. Organized training will give you the kickstart you need and save you valuable time otherwise wasted on costly trial and error.

INCREASED RETENTION

Studies show that when learners “do and say,” they experience an increase of knowledge retention up to 80% over reading alone.

BUILD SKILL, NOT JUST KNOWLEDGE

Books and blogs are good knowledge resources. Skill, however, is acquired by doing. There is simply no replacement for the skill building that occurs with hands-on activities and real-life simulations.

Who Should Attend

Scrum attendees

There is no right or wrong person to attend this training. In fact, the most successful agile adoptions have included training for everyone, right down to Finance and Sales staff.

What Industries

Use Scrum?

Scrum industries

The most popular use of Scrum is for software development in a wide variety of industries, including financial services, insurance, education, information technology, government programs and supply chain management. But Scrum goes beyond software development!

Scrum is appropriate for almost any complex project with rapidly changing or emergent requirements, regardless of the industry.
