Browse our upcoming courses on ASTI Website
The Virtual Certified ScrumMaster (CSM) training class is a 2-day learning experience that provides students a full immersion into what it takes to be a great ScrumMaster. You will learn the theory, the values and elements that define the Scrum framework, and how a great ScrumMaster uses them skillfully in the service of the Team, the Product Owner, and the whole organization.
The class is presented in a highly interactive and collaborative format with elements of lecture, classroom discussion, exercises, games and simulations, smoothly blended throughout the class. We will approach the class at a sustainable pace and endeavor to take breaks often, to allow our brain to stay focused and our body to recharge when necessary.
The Scrum Master Training conveys an elaborate knowledge about Scrum and the Scrum framework. During the course, attendees will learn why such a seemingly simple process such as Scrum can have such profound effects on an organization. Participants gain practical experience working with Scrum tools and activities such as the product backlog, sprint backlog, daily Scrum meetings, sprint planning meeting, and Burn Down Charts.
