But Which Training in Chicago Should I Attend?
Both courses provide a solid foundation of knowledge on which to build your Scrum adoption. However, if you’re hoping for more specialization, a simple way to consider the course differences is this:
- The Certified ScrumMaster training (CSM) is geared toward those responsible for creating a project, such as team members and ScrumMasters.
- The Certified Product Owner training (CSPO) is focused on those who carry the product vision, such as Product Owners, management and stakeholders.
The 3Back Difference:
- Accredited Training – 3Back is a Registered Education Provider (REP) for both the Scrum Alliance and the Project Management Institute (PMI).
- Expert Trainers – All 3Back certified trainings are delivered by Scrum Alliance Certified Scrum Trainers – industry leaders and authors of Exploring Scrum: The Fundamentals.

- Better Value – 3Back training utilizes modern adult learning practices proven to enhance retention and understanding. Why waste money on information that will be forgotten?
- Applied Agile – Nothing accelerates learning like a solid foundation of “why” followed by intensive hands-on experience. This teaches students how to make well-informed decisions based on Scrum and agile methods, not just reiterate principles they’ve heard.

Optional Reading for Your Scrum Training Chicago:
Exploring Scrum: The Fundamentals (People, Product, and Practices)
by Dan Rawsthorne and Doug Shimp
Dan Rawsthorne and Doug Shimp have trained and coached thousands of people, most of whom are already using Scrum. Their most common complaint is that they need help to do it right. And many (if not most) of them need some help.
This book is for them and others like them.
This book is not an introductory text. Dan and Doug assume that those who read this book know, or think they know, something about Scrum, whether through self-learning or by attending a ScrumMaster training class. 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.
