Certified ScrumMaster Training

Scrum was designed to enable teams to achieve a hyper-productive state (5-10 times
normal performance). To achieve this level of performance, essential grounding in the
Scrum work management framework is necessary.

In Scrum, there are 3 roles: the Product Owner, the Team, and the ScrumMaster. The
2-dayCertified ScrumMaster class imparts the knowledge, skills, and tools to successfully
implement Scrum as a ScrumMaster. This highly interactive workshop provides a
foundational understanding of the Scrum framework and gives participants hands-on
practice applying Scrum in multiple project settings and situations.
