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.
Course was paced well. Material excellent. Instructor very knowledgeable.
Overall good class for those who only know the basics of Scrum. Great job explaining key concepts of Scrum and really breaking them down.
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.
I found the class very educational. A little overwhelming, but that is to be expected. I would definitely like to continue my Agile/Scrum education.
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.

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.
Get To Done® is both online software and cards on walls. We have worked hard to bring this unique tool to you so that you have full support for writing and managing complex backlogs. Stop regressing! Getting Scrum implemented right is hard, your software tool needs to support the right behaviors or groups often regress.
Scrum Dictionary exists for one simple reason. Words matter. In the world of Agile frameworks, words matter event more. Scrum Dictionary removes the lexicon noise and delivers a clear, concise definition of Agile terms, complete with examples and related terminology, in a format that's as user-friendly as they come.
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?
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.
Studies show that when learners “do and say,” they experience an increase of knowledge retention up to 80% over reading alone.
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
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. Scrum training is especially appropriate for anyone in the corporate structure dealing with rapidly changing demands. In a traditional organization, these roles might include:
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! We’ve known organizations and individuals who have used Scrum for graphic design, wedding planning, data warehousing, consulting, classroom projects, household management, auto salvage yards and much more. Scrum is appropriate for almost any complex project with rapidly changing or emergent requirements, regardless of the industry.
