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

James Smith

James Smith first experienced the power of Scrum during a most dramatic of corporate turnarounds. Holding a very painful client-facing position and tiring of having nothing but bad news to communicate to his clients over and over again, a new job search had begun. Then Scrum took seed.

In an incredibly short time, Monday mornings were once again something to look forward to and not to dread. Clients soon began requesting that they slow down their pace; they were overwhelming their IT departments with new features. Life for everyone in the corporation, and for those to whom they came home at night, got much better.

Moving into the ScrumMaster role and being part of the many successful releases delivered to our clients has been an extremely gratifying part of the past years.

He feels that Scrum when properly implemented makes life better for all involved. And at the end of the day, that is a very good thing of which to be a part.

As a trainer, mentor and advisor, he has been honored with the opportunity to bring the spirit and techniques of Scrum with multiple training engagements for organizations like Sony, Boeing, HP and the US Department of Defense.

James holds several qualifications and certifications; he is Six Sigma Certified, a Certified ScrumMaster, Product Owner and Trainer and holds an MBA from Northwestern's Kellogg School of Management.
