Over 70% of the organisations using agile have selected Scrum as their method of choice. Getting a suitable certification in Scrum helps ensure the competency of staff involved in implementing Scrum effectively and getting the business benefits of agile development. A key role in this is of course the Scrum Master role.
The creators of Scrum, Jeff Sutherland and Ken Schwaber, have defined the key concepts and practices of Scrum and based on this have created a two level Professional Scrum Master certification scheme. This is based on passing a credible examination/assessment rather than course attendance on its own. Over 10,000 people have already been certified based on passing the PSM Level I online exam. (PSM Level II covers more advanced topics such as scaling Scrum and in addition to training and studying Scrum widely, recommends extensive hands-on experience using Scrum) See the Scrum website for more details on the PSM I and II exams/assessments. PSM I is a prerequisite to undertaking the PSM II assessment.
This course is intended to prepare those wishing to take the online PSM Level I assessment. It also provides valuable insights into the practical issues involved in getting the most from your Scrum implementation based on the practical real-world experience of industry recognised expert tutors.
In addition to covering the key elements of Scrum, this course will get participants to actively participate in the Scrum process with realistic and practical hands-on exercises that reinforce the learning points.
