Our course curriculum sets the standard for Scrum know-how, drawing on our experience of implementing Scrum across industries including energy, finance, defense and technology.
You will learn by doing.

Our case studies and interactive exercises teach the patterns proven to accelerate your Scrum.

- How to be an effective Scrum Master
- How to improve teamwork and productivity
- How to launch new products faster than you think you possibly can
- How to demand, and receive, technical excellence to not only deliver products faster, but with higher quality.
As a Certified Scrum Master you will:
- Be prepared to pass the Certified Scrum Master test and become a Scrum practitioner
- Be qualified to lead teams in any environment or industry as a Scrum Master
- Have the opportunity to network with industry leaders and Agile professionals
- Engage with instructors and classmates on challenges specific to your organization
This course will focus on the Scrum Master, the Product Owner, and the Team in a software development organization. However, the course is useful to everyone in a company that uses Scrum. Jeff coaches Scrum teams in sales, marketing, finance, client services, senior management teams, investment groups, and non-profit organizations as well as software development teams. You will often find a CEO, CFO, or CIO in these classes, as well as others interested in expanding Scrum throughout their companies.
