Professional Scrum Master (PSM® I) Prep Course
Learn Agile and gain the Professional Scrum Master (PSM®) Certification from Scrum.org
In the face of ever greater competition more and more IT companies are adopting agile methods, modeling and practices to their advantage. Implementing the appropriate agile framework, however, is crucial. One of the most valuable agile certifications is the Professional Scrum Master (PSM®) Certification from Scrum.Org.
Our 2-day prep course helps participants understand certification domains, explore real-world cases and discuss some additional material useful for both passing the certification exam and for actually applying the agile and Scrum principles and practices. Even though participants in our courses have a very high pass rate, our certification program is not just about getting participants certified, but is designed to also ensure that they are ready to start using agile practices in their projects. The examples and details will be adapted to better suit the background and interests of the seminar participants.
This training program has three main sections:
1. The Agility Concept: the real meaning of agility and adaptation and the reasons it can work better for certain projects. Different types of false agility commonly found in companies and the problems it creates are also discussed so that participants will be able to prescribe solutions for fixing their problems and enhancing the performance. In this section we cover:
