Agile/XP ScrumMaster Certification


Why Choose a Three Day Course?

Learn Scrum by Practicing Scrum

In a traditional 2-day Scrum course, you’d see a standard list of Scrum-related topics including:

  • Product backlog
  • Sprint backlog
  • Daily scrum
  • Sprint planning meeting
  • Burn charts


Also, in a traditional Scrum course, you would have no say in the order or manner in which the instructor covers this material.


Our 3-day course is different. You will still cover the basic Scrum material and become a Certified Scrum Master (CSM), however you’ll do so by practicing Scrum while learning it. You and your team members (other students) will produce a preliminary product backlog for the standard Scrum training. You’ll also have an opportunity to add in your own issues.


Working with your instructors, the remainder of the class will involve:

  • Managing the course backlog
  • Planning sprints within the backlog
  • Executing those sprints to actually learn the Scrum approach
  • Performing daily planning meetings to track progress against the sprint
  • Producing burn charts related to progress against the backlog


In addition to the standard topics, and topics students bring with them, we will additionally cover some “FAQs” including, but not limited to:

  • Incomplete stories at Sprint end
  • Endless revisions to supposedly completed backlog items
  • Thrashing at the end of the Sprint
  • Obscure “technical” backlog items
  • “Scrummerfall” Sprints with lengthy analysis, and time-consuming testing
  • Increasing technical debt slowing development to a halt
  • Slow draggy Sprints


Learn practical approaches to increasing productivity while increasing Product Owner and management satisfaction. Explore techniques for applying Scrum to large and distributed teams.

"Outstanding — a mind-changing experience. This class helped remove the myths about what Agile/XP is and is not."
