The ScrumMaster has a key role in Scrum. The role is different to that of a project manager, for example the ScrumMaster has no responsibility for planning and controlling projects. Instead, the ScrumMaster supports and encourages the team’s self-organisation and the success of projects by optimising the collaboration between the product owner and development team.
The course provides an introduction to Scrum, focussed on the role of the ScrumMaster. It will deepen your understanding of the principles and practices of Scrum and the role of managers in an organisation that transitions to Scrum. It will help you to understand the prerequisites for Scrum and the changes in an organisation that are necessary for sustainable success with Scrum.
After the course (in your own time), you will be able to take the Scrum Alliance’s online test. On successful completion of the course and test you will be awarded the title “Certified ScrumMaster” and receive a two-year membership of the Scrum Alliance.
The course is suitable for everyone who is about to start using Scrum or has already gathered some experience and wants to deepen their understanding of Scrum. The ScrumMaster role is the focus of the course – however it is suitable for team members or managers who would like an introduction to Scrum.
The material is divided into modules. During each module, the trainer will guide you through exercises that help you connect the material to your existing experience, learn new concepts and experience the concepts through practice. Questions are welcome at any time.
