Robert Kaiser
I love the iterative design for the virtual CSM course. The pre-training videos lay a great foundation. The live discussions, facilitated by a pro, reenforce the key concepts. And the small-group activities are well designed and gave me a chance to apply the learning. This approach really locked it all in for the certification exam. Robert Kaiser

What You'll Learn

An overview of Scrum

A brief introduction to Scrum and its principles so all attendees start from the same point. 

Sprints

Know what’s expected in a sprint, what the team and product owner commit to, how to analyze the optimum length of a sprint and understand what “done” looks like. 

Product backlogs

Discover how to progressively refine the product backlog to ensure that it is manageable and can be turned into effective user stories for each sprint. 

Understanding Scrum roles

As Scrum Master, you have to work effectively with the product owner and your technical team. Mike gives you training to handle the real-life subtle dynamics that can affect team commitment, morale and efficiency. You’ll see where conflict may arise within the different roles and how to minimize this so each member can focus on delivering the best value at the end of each sprint. 

Long-term planning

One of the most important abilities of a valued Scrum Master is being able to plan and estimate when work will be shipped, what features will be included and the cost of the project. With this training, you get specific tools to help you deliver accurate estimates while accounting for real-life complexities.

Sprint planning

How do you get the best out of a meeting if the product owner isn’t available? What should you do if he or she turns up and tries to bring too much to the sprint?

This training gives you specific strategies and tactics to you to make sure that sprint planning is efficient, morale remains high and the team has a good idea of what they’re going to do during the sprint.

Meetings

As Scrum Master, it’s your responsibility to facilitate the daily scrum, the sprint review and the sprint retrospective. You’ll know what should be covered in each meeting, the true purpose of each meeting, the outputs from each, how long they should take, and who should be involved. 

Scaling and Distributed Teams

The beauty and popularity of Scrum lies in its ability to organize complex projects on any scale, from small teams working together in the same building, to teams working around the world and across different time zones. The course includes guidelines to get you started at multi-team scrum and for choosing among various scaling frameworks.

What is your refund policy?

If you cancel or reschedule more than 7 days before the first day of the class you will receive a full refund. If you cancel or reschedule within 7 business days of the first day of class, a 50% fee will be charged, and the remaining 50% can be used as a credit toward a class to be taken within 6 months from the date of the canceled class. All cancellation requests must be made via email to [email protected]. Refunds or credits will not be issued for no shows, partial attendance or cancellations within 24 hours.

We want you to feel confident about enrolling in our live, online courses. If after watching the pre-course videos and participating in the live sessions you don’t find the course valuable, email us within 7 days for a full refund.

Will my certificate say Virtual if I take the certification online?

No, your certificate will not mention the course was held online. It will look the same as the in person certificates.

Can I attend both the CSM and CSPO class back to back?

Absolutely! In many ways, the two courses are complementary and there is very little overlap between the two courses.

Are your courses only for software developers?

Not necessarily. Each course has attendees from a variety of backgrounds, including from non-software fields. Mike’s passion is product development of all sorts, so many examples are software related, but no software development experience is required.
