Even projects that have solid, well-defined project plans encounter some degree of change and waste. Shifting market conditions, budget cuts, staff restructuring, or any number of influences will disrupt the best plan while contributing to customer dissatisfaction and staff discouragement. Moreover, projects that begin with changing or unclear requirements make it difficult to even establish project expectations. The Certified ScrumMaster Workshop helps you to be prepared.
Scrum is the agile development process that allows teams to deliver usable software periodically throughout the life of the project, absorbing change and new requirements as the project proceeds.
Beginning with the history of agile development and moving through the disciplines promoted by Scrum, you will gain a comprehensive understanding of the Scrum methodology while specifically reviewing the behaviors expected of a ScrumMaster.
The Certified ScrumMaster Workshop will be of interest to:
Those practicing or looking to practice the art of the ScrumMaster or anyone involved in Scrum (managers, team members, product managers, etc.)
Team members not certified, including business customers, users, or partners, product owners, team members, acting ScrumMasters who are not certified
