Scrum Master Course Program

1. Scrum Fundamentals

You will access a full hour of videos through which you will learn about the origins of Scrum, its principles, and values. I will introduce you to the Scrum Team structure and expectations for each of the roles. You will also know the succession of Events (meetings) and Artifacts, as well as the purpose of each one.

2. Complexity Management

As in a few places, you will understand the underlying reasons for using Scrum for complexity management. I'll show you when it makes sense and when it doesn't make sense to use Scrum. Through a series of exercises, you will be able to conclude on your own the context that leads us to leverage Scrum to succeed in complex contexts. So much so that you are most likely wondering, 'Why didn't anyone tell me this before? It would have been so easy to understand agility.'.

3. Incremental Development

You will experience one of the most significant mindset shifts in transitioning from traditional development to agile development. In short, the strategy used to build the product: continually validating your assumptions. .

4. Scrum Team Accountabilities

You'll identify the responsibilities, mindset, and anti-patterns of each Scrum role (Scrum Master, Product Owner, and Developers) so that you have no doubts about what each person is expected to do and what they are not expected to do and what they are. The most important care you should have as a Scrum Master.

5. Agile Estimation

Another significant mindset shift occurs from a traditional to an Agile approach to estimating and planning. During this section of the workshop, you will be able to exercise both the estimation and the planning of product characteristics, carried out from an agile perspective, oriented to Outcomes and not to Outputs as it is traditionally..

6. Scrum Events Dip Dive

You will participate in an innovative group exercise that will show you the importance of the Scrum approach and the most critical details of the main Scrum events. For example: your purposes, participants, typical agendas, durations, anti-patterns, and frequent problems..

What is a Certified Scrum Master (CSM) and how can you become one?

From now on, by becoming a Certified Scrum Master, everything you've learned about Team Leadership will be challenged by agility. It is very likely that you will soon work, if you are not already doing so, under the agile framework most sought after by companies and most popular worldwide: Scrum.

In your Scrum Master role, you'll work with the Product Owner, the Developers, and the Organization, ensuring the fluidity in their work removing organizational impediments, which provide a healthy Scrum implementation.

In your day-to-day, you will work on Sprints. In Scrum, the Sprints are fixed periods to build and deliver Product Increments to be reviewed with your stakeholders and learn from their feedback.

In the meantime, as Scrum Master, you should be aware of the purpose, dynamics, tools, and anti-patterns for each of the Scrum meetings, such as Sprint Planning, Daily Scrum, Sprint Review, and Sprint Retrospective.

Your role is fundamental in each and every one of these Scrum meetings. You will be the facilitator, and you will be responsible for overseeing the process by which the other team members will make collaborative decisions.

And your responsibilities do not end here; as CSM you should also facilitate refinement activities with a large part of the team and stakeholders, groups of people who generally think very differently, to generate agreements and shared decisions.

DAdditionally, great Scrum Masters learn this new way of leading by being of service and knowing all about Scrum, adaptive control models, evolutionary product development, and facilitation. Still, they also pay close attention to unlearning many forms of leadership that become impediments to successfully implementing Scrum.

All those learnings and unlearning are awaiting you within this international Scrum Master certification.
