What does the Scrum Master training entail?

Scrum is the most popular and common Agile way of working based on Toyota’s Lean method. This framework was developed by Jeff Sutherland and Ken Schwaber for software development and is in use since 1995. In Scrum, the emphasis is on customer communication, the development team and stakeholders. Furthermore, Scrum is suitable for IT and non-IT projects within organizations. According to the research company, The Standish Group, almost 80% of European organizations plan to introduce Agile and Scrum in the short term.

 

Within Scrum there are 3 roles; the Product Owner, the Scrum Master, and the Development Team. As a Scrum Master the following questions will challenge you:

How can I ensure that my team delivers actual value to customers?

How do I build a well-functioning and self-organizing Scrum team?

How do I ensure optimal collaboration within the team and with the organization?

…and much more.

The essence and principles of Agile/Scrum as well as the Scrum Master’s role and responsibilities are discussed during the Scrum Master training. We’ll also discuss; how the Scrum Master can best serve his / her team, the Product Owner and the organization.

 

Training approach

The training takes one day and is given in the project form. In this way, you’ll learn to put knowledge into practice. Important Scrum elements are simplified through exercises, role-playing and games. This provides more inspiration and a continually positive experience. This makes working with Scrum pleasant.

 

Target audience

The training is suitable for anyone who would like to know (more) about the Scrum Master role and how you can become an effective Scrum Master in order to grow into a stronger team leader, project manager or team member. Furthermore, this training is a good knowledge base for students with ambition for the role of Agile or Scrum Coach. In addition, this training is good exam preparation for obtaining Scrum Master certificates.
