Overview<p>Becoming a member of a Scrum team can be a daunting prospect, and being asked to serve as the team's ScrumMaster can be downright intimidating. You've got an idea of what Scrum is and have read a few articles or books on the topic, but you really don't know how to go about putting that theory into action.</p> <p>That's where the CSM course comes in. Our trainers will teach you what you need to know to fill the role of ScrumMaster (or Scrum team member). This course focuses on the basics of the Scrum framework, including team roles, activities, and artefacts, so that you can be an effective member of a Scrum team.</p>
The course will be a mix of theory delivered by slides and exercise-based learning. Although each course we deliver is slightly different and tailored to our client’s needs and circumstances, the core agenda of the Certified ScrumMaster class set out by the Scrum Alliance must include the following:
- What is Scrum?
- The Product Vision
- The Product Backlog
- Roles in a Scrum team
- Defining Done
- Planning in Scrum (Sprint Planning, Release Planning)
- Daily Scrums
- Sprint Reviews
- Sprint Retrospectives
- Reporting Progress in Scrum (burndown charts)

Scrum is an agile framework for managing complex projects. Scrum originally was formalized for software development projects, but it works well for any complex, innovative scope of work. The possibilities are endless. The Scrum framework is deceptively simple.
