about course

A Certified ScrumMaster® is well equipped to use Scrum, an agile methodology to any project to ensure its success. Scrum's iterative approach and ability to respond to change, makes the Scrum practice best suited for projects with rapidly altering and high emergent requirements, enabling teams to deliver usable software consistently and periodically through a defined project lifecycle.

The role of the ScrumMaster can be seen as crucial and involves overcoming challenges to progress, facilitating the process, and working with the product owner to make sure the product backlog is in good shape and ready for the next sprint. The ScrumMaster ensures that his team lives by the values and practices of Scrum, and doing so ensures their high performance.

This two-day Certified ScrumMaster training is delivered by Scrum Alliance Certified Trainers (CSTs) who will provide you with a deeper understanding of the three overarching areas of change under Scrum: Iterative Development, Self-Management, and Visibility required for greater project success as a ScrumMaster.

This training is being conducted in partnership with KnowledgeHut, a Registered Education Provider of Scrum Alliance.

Alexandre Magno CST

I help creative workers, teams and organisations to learn better by facilitating unique learning experiences on agile, self-organising teams and learning 3.0. I really believe that emergent learning and learning facilitation are the keys to creative workers' success in this complex and fast-paced new world of work. I'm the author of "How Creative Workers Learn", the first book in the Learning 3.0 series, and founder of the Learning 3.0 brand at Happy Melly. Throughout my career, I have moved from programming computers to software development; then moving back into to database development; product, project and team leadership; agile coaching...and finally: business management. In all those fields I was in someway involved with learning initiatives, realising that was where I am able to make a huge social impact, and so identifying this as my calling in life.
