CSM - The SCRUM Master With the (Xtra)

Content of the Training

In the Certified Scrum Master (Xtra) training, we deal with the essential components of Scrum: the values and principles, roles and practices. Although these building blocks are easy to understand at first sight, they are often very difficult to implement in practice. It is a matter of creating a deep understanding of the essentials of Scrum - a "scrum-thinking", which can solve problems that arise in practice. We deal with the entire chain from the product vision to the finished product.

Goal of the Training

After successful participation in the training, you understand the tasks of the ScrumMaster and are prepared to use Scrum in your project environment.

Certification: Participants who successfully complete the course become Certified Scrum Master ™ and receive a two-year membership in the Scrum Alliance®.

Who should participate?

The background of the participants who attend the training ranges from scrum beginners to people who already have practical experience. The exchange of experience is an essential element of the training. In order to be able to work on a common foundation, we will provide you with material which will enable you to prepare. Depending on your knowledge, please plan for 30 minutes to 4 hours.
