Course Description

The ScrumMaster is the person responsible for helping the team following the company’s defined Agile process. It is similar to a Project Manager role but this person may or may not be the perceived "leader/coach" in a given Sprint. The ScrumMaster is the team member responsible to resolve obstacles which involve the organization outside the Sprint, in order to protect the Sprint team from outside distractions. The ScrumMaster enables the team by removing/resolving blockages that impede their work toward the Sprint’s goal.


This course teaches the participant how to apply Agile techniques to lead, not manage teams. Participants will learn how to work with product owners to create product backlogs and plan sprints, work with the team to break down backlog items into prioritized, individualized functional tasks. In addition, participants will learn the right methods, logistics and metrics needed to execute and track the sprint and bring it to a successful customer demo. Finally, the participant will learn how to use these skills within a large-scale, distributed environment. The course includes instructor experiences, case studies, and several in-class labs will enable participants to build knowledge and skills through active participation instead of lecture.


Topics covered in class are relevant to all levels of experience. Our instructors simplify complex topics and present them clearly and concisely. Case studies and in-class exercises allow the participant to combine and utilize concepts learned during the course.
