Certified Scrum Master Course + Workshops

Dates: February 4-7, 2014
Location: Montreal, QC

The Montreal Course & Workshops:

Our approach is unique. We do a 2-day interactive course plus two 1-day Workshops.

ScrumMaster training provides an applied understanding of the Scrum process and will help you begin to develop the tools, attitudes, and skills required to apply Scrum on your projects and across your organization.

This course covers the basics of Scrum, with the hope that you will be interested enough, motivated enough, and now smart enough to go out and use these ideas effectively. Not perfectly, but effectively. You will not be a master at Scrum, but you will have enough to get started and have some success (assuming conditions are at least somewhat favorable).

Unlike others, we combine two optional 1 day workshops with this course. The content of the course and workshops are described more fully
here. You may take the CSM course only, if you want. Attendees strongly recommend the Workshops. In overly simple terms, it takes the ideas and makes them practical in your work.

The Workshops are (in order):

  • Agile Release Planning & Sprint Planning (1 day)
  • Scaling Agile (1 day)

The workshops are described here.

Joe Little, an experienced Agile coach and Scrum Trainer (CST), will lead this Scrum course. Joe has in-depth practical experience in helping teams become very productive with Scrum and Agile. He often co-teaches these courses with other great Scrum trainers. Take a look at Joe's blog, Agile & Business, here. Joe is a certified Scrum Alliance trainer (CST).
