In this two-day course, you will learn how to advance your skills and knowledge while gaining hands-on practice and insight into handling the complex challenges faced by Scrum teams and organizations. Drawing from extensive experience and study, as well as that of the thousands of ScrumMasters we’ve trained, we discuss how to strengthen your team and address the most common questions that typically start with, “Yeah, but in the real world…?” In addition to the exercises, the course itself is conducted using a Scrum-like process to provide advanced insight into Scrum concepts and techniques and instill students with a Scrum mindset. Practical examples demonstrate how to handle changing requirements using Scrum to facilitate communication, overcome conflicts and impediments, and increase team engagement and performance.
This is one of the few A-CSM courses in the world where the applications of neuroscience and psychology of teams are discussed and you can use them to better organize Scrum and build effective teams.
