Would you like to learn the techniques and practices required to become an effective ScrumMaster? Would you like to learn how to support and coach your team through your projects, helping the product owner(s) and developers capture and understand requirements through stories and acceptance tests, prioritise the backlog, and plan and estimate regular releases through to production?
Then join Martine Devos for this 2-day Scrum Master and Estimation class! You will learn the fundamental principles of Scrum and all about your role as a Scrum Master (and upon successful completion of this course, you will also receive a qualification from Martine Devos as a Certified Scrum Master, which is issued by the Scrum Alliance).
Leading a Scrum team is radically different to traditional project management. Rather than plan, instruct, and direct, the leader of a Scrum team (called a Scrum Master) facilitates, coaches and leads. In this intensive and highly interactive Certified Scrum Master workshop you will learn techniques and practices to do just that. You will gain insight into the obstacles that confront Scrum teams and how to overcome them.
Throughout this Scrum Master course, you will be introduced to the best engineering practices and tools. You will learn about the theory and ideas underpinning Scrum and Agile techniques, and put theory into practice through a variety of exercises and take-aways which you will be able to use on your own projects with your co-workers.
Upon completion, you'll leave with a deep understanding of Scrum and how to put it into practice and succeed with and benefit from it. You will be able to share your experience with your colleagues and support your team with the successful delivery of projects by using Scrum efficiently and productively. You will also receive a copy of [Essential Scrum: A Practical Guide to the Most Popular Agile Process] to take away! : http://www.amazon.co.uk/Essential-Scrum-Practical-Addison-Wesley-Signature/dp/0137043295/ref=sr11?ie=UTF8&qid=1362134913&sr=8-1
