Certified Scrum Master Training Description
I've been in industry now for almost 20 years and in all that time, I've had only 3 or 4 training classes that I thought made a meaningful impact on my job or career. Jim's class is one of those."
In this two-day course, you will apply the Scrum framework to build a new product. You will learn what it feels like to be on a Scrum team—experiencing many of the challenges you're likely to face—while being coached by someone involved with the application of Scrum at many organizations. This “learning by doing” style of instruction demands your open mind and active participation.
We will apply the experiential activities to discussion of advanced topics such as how to use Scrum in multiple-team organizations, how to measure progress empirically at a macro level, release planning to maximize ROI, and why such a simple framework disrupts organizations to be the best they can be.
Participants who complete the course successfully will be designated “Certified ScrumMaster” (CSM). This certification includes a two-year membership in the Scrum Alliance, where additional Certified ScrumMaster-only material and information are available.
Food and refreshments are typically provided.

It's always a good idea to come prepared!! If you can read a copy of Agile Software Development with Scrum or a copy of The Scrum Guide, you won't be disappointed. However, if you find you can't get through the book before the class, don't worry! You'll learn everything you need to know in the class!
Come with lots of questions, but please try to leave your laptops at home and your phones on vibrate!
