Feedback is Paramount

See What Our Students Are Saying

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.

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.

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.

Interesting material. Learned about what we do is no ideal and how to Scale. Will try to implement for my clients.

Course was paced well. Material excellent. Instructor very knowledgeable.

As an inexperienced member of a Scrum Team, this 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.

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.

Agenda

The 2-day Certified Scrum Master training class (CSM) is an intensive interactive session designed to leverage the diverse background of the participants through facilitated discussion, activities and simulation. The following topics will be covered:

Overview of Scrum and Agile Practices
Scrum Roles, Ceremonies and Artifacts
The ScrumMaster Role
Building and Guiding the Team
Stories and the Backlog
Scrum in the Organization

Additional Details

Enrolling in 3Back’s Certified ScrumMaster training is the first step toward achieving your own ScrumMaster certification from the world’s largest, oldest and most recognized Scrum certification organization — the Scrum Alliance. Successful completion of a Scrum Alliance approved CSM course is required to take the certification exam. Upon successful completion of your Certified ScrumMaster training class, your credentials will be sent to the Scrum Alliance and they will contact you directly with instructions on taking your exam.

The initial cost of your exam plus a 2-year membership to the Scrum Alliance is included in your 3Back course registration, so there’s no need to worry about hidden costs or surprise fees later on. We know that test anxiety is common so we do everything we can to help you prepare. In addition to the knowledge obtained in class, you will receive a free Scrum Study Guide with two practice exams. And, if you need us, our entire staff (including your trainer) is only a click or call away, so if you need clarification or review, just drop us a line. Following your Certified Scrum Master training course, you’ll have 90 days to complete the non-proctored online exam.

The exam consists of 50 questions selected randomly from a pool. A passing score requires a minimum of 37 correct answers. Although 3Back students have a pass rate of over 99%, in the event that you should need to retake the exam, a second attempt is included at no cost. Additional attempts are $25 each. We have done our best to provide the most up to date information. However, we suggest checking the Scrum Alliance directly for additional details or confirmation of the above.

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.

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. Scrum training is especially appropriate for anyone in the corporate structure dealing with rapidly changing demands. In a traditional organization, these roles might include:

Developers
Testers
Directors
Project Managers
Program Managers
CXOs
Architects
Coders
Designers
Technical Writers
SMEs
Product Managers
Stakeholders
Analysts
QA Staff
Engineers

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! 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.
