Agile Business Consortium
Scrum Master Course

What is it about?

Scrum is a framework for developing, delivering and sustaining complex products through effective team collaboration. Scrum has been used to develop software, hardware, autonomous vehicles, schools, government, marketing, managing the operation of organizations and almost everything we use in our daily lives, as individuals and societies.

A Scrum Master is responsible for promoting and supporting Scrum – as defined in The Scrum Guide – by helping everyone understand Scrum theory, practices, rules and values.

Our two-day course addresses the principles and theory underpinning the Scrum framework, and the role of the Scrum Master.
 
Delegates receive:

  • Accredited Scrum Master course material
  • Sample exam paper and answer sets.

Throughout the course you can expect to be challenged to think in terms of the Scrum principles to better understand their application when returning to the workplace. Purposefully less IT-centric. Exercises and discussions focus on non-IT scenarios.

The course is a combination of instruction and team-based exercises, teaching what is at the heart of the Scrum and Agile movement. It is delivered with a blend of classroom training interventions and practical syndicate and individual sessions, evening work is also required during the course. All our facilitators are accredited by APMG-International.

Training and certification are based on The Scrum Guide, developed by Scrum creators Ken Schwaber and Jeff Sutherland.

What can I expect?
