Project Management

Scrum Master is a two-day course that covers the principles and empirical process theory underpinning the Scrum Framework and the role of the Scrum Master in it. This course is a combination of instruction and team-based exercises, and it teaches what is at the heart of the Scrum and Agile movement. The course includes advanced thinking for servant-leadership and behavioural shifts.

Throughout the course, students are challenged to think in terms of the Scrum principles to better understand what to do when returning to the workplace. The Scrum Master course is much more than just a set of slides and an instructor as students will work on real-life cases with other classmates together as a team.  The course is highly practical and includes discussions and hands-on exercises based upon real-life cases.  Agile games are also used to ensure that the learner experiences the scrum ceremonies with live scenarios.

The course also covers all the topics related to Professional Scrum Master I (PSM I) and includes practice exams.
