CERTIFIED SCRUM & AGILE MASTER

SUMMARY

In this four-day course you will learn the most important and practical aspects of Agile, including all of Scrum. Unlike traditional Scrum Master courses, this course is extremely practical and covers several additional agile practices that will help you ensure that your team performs at a much higher level than most teams.

This is our highest rated and longest running course with over 20 years of history and thousands of attendees. Please join us on a journey through agile that will give you the fundamentals to be a far better Scrum Master than most.

The course is based on hundreds of man-years worth of experience and rests firmly on internationally established agile frameworks, such as Lean, Scrum, XP, DSDM Atern and other internationally proven practices.

Unlike most other courses we follow a clear chronological path throughout the course, making it much easier to understand exactly when and how each practice should be used.
