Certified Scrum Master (CSM) Training:
This certification course is an immersive exploration of the agile mindset, and associated business benefits. The program is intended both for agile newcomers and experienced practitioners wanting a new perspective. You learn the WHY behind agile methods, such as better customer satisfaction, better visibility, better morale, and other drivers. You also gain hands-on experience using the Scrum framework, the most common approach to HOW to achieve agility.
Learn techniques such as:
Sprints and Scrum Masters
Definition of done
Backlogs and burndowns
The course uses multi-modal learning with video, story telling, dialog, and kinetic activities. This use of hands-on practice and real-world examples boosts knowledge acquisition and retention.
The Agenda is aligned to the certification learning objectives defined by the Scrum Alliance. However, the course features a dynamic prioritization based on the needs of the group. This way, participants get double value of required core knowledge, as well as custom topics.

Efficient Productive Teams
Case studies and research show agile methods promote more visibility, faster time to market with better quality products, while increasing adaptability and visibility at the same time. But these results come from unconventional practices like self organization, cross-disciplinary teams, small increments, and frequent inspection. These practices do not come naturally. You need training.
