Certified Scrum & Agile Master

S4D EventplusThis practical course gives you a unique and customised blend of best practices that really work.
We’ve been doing this for many, many years and we give you what we think is the best of the best—things that we on a daily basis see working in real live practice.

Our twenty years hands on experience with agile deliveries
and training has given us a clear vision of what’s needed to be done in order to succeed with Scrum and Agile on a practical level.

The concept is based on internationally established agile frameworks, such Scrum, Lean, XP, Kanban, DSDM and more, and contains many years’ worth of experience from all over the world. An agile team today needs to go far beyond Scrum in order to be both innovative and effective and well integrated with its surrounding. We go far beyond theories and ideas into practical realities. We have trained thousands primarily in the Nordics, but also abroad.

You will learn what techniques and terms such as sprint planning, product backlog management and much more really mean in day-to-day practical life. The course covers all that a traditional Scrum Master course does, but goes far beyond basic Scrum and includes a broader Lean and Agile perspective. Boring power points not included!

Certification: Exam for double certification is included, DSDM Agile Foundation and Certified Scrum and Agile Master
(Professional Scrum Master I is available on request and so is also SAFe for Teams)

The course is normally held in Swedish if English is not requested and agreed among participants.

Key terms: Scrum, Lean, XP, Kanban, Sprint, Iteration
