Course Indication

Highlights

Necessity of Scrum Master role, and its difference from the typical project manager role:  Both being critical roles for project success, they are very different, leaving scope for ambiguity. Project manager is in charge of managing the resources whereas, the Scrum Master is responsible for supporting the team like a “facilitator” The prior is a planner, and latter, the coach.


Testing effectiveness: The focus of the Scrum Master  is on delivering software reliably and on-time, irrespective of challenging estimations and making the team fulfill commitments. 


Transition in role when working with a distributed team and  when the team is placed together:distributed team invariably denotes losing face-to-face communication, thus paying more attention to organizing meetings and relaying the team progress. 


Work effectively with the CTO or CIO:  to understand what success means to the authority, and the yardstick to measure-speed of delivery, time to market, or potentiality of members, the metrics have to be clear.

Course Stats

In case an individual is interested in taking sessions in the weekdays, the duration would be 2-3 hours per day. Whereas, in case of a weekend, it would be 8 hours at a stretch. This  time span is exclusively dedicated to the training imparted by our expert faculty in real time, as well as, short lectures that can be accessed online. Although, there is always a scope for you to clear your doubts in the after-hours at ease. 


We definitely are a professional bunch of individuals delivering prompt service, by strictly adhering to time durations, but, we too realize that internalizing concepts demand time that varies with individual level of intelligence. So, we do not turn you down in case you ask for that extra help.

  • Demonstrating how the values and principles of the Agile Manifesto are present in Scrum (e.g., frequent inspection and adaptation in review, retrospective, Daily Scrum).
  • Outlining the historical development of Scrum and Agile (i.e., origins in Lean and OOP/OOD, first Scrum teams in 1980s, first publication from OOPSLA96, Schwaber/Beedle Book 2001).
  • Describing at least two other Lean/Agile development frameworks outside of Scrum and explain their value (e.g., LSD, XP, Kanban).
  • Demonstrating how violation of Agilet can be rectified and/or addressed by the ScrumMaster from a personal angle.
  • Debating at least five personality traits of an excellent ScrumMaster (e.g., proactive, curious, humble, improving, learning, responsible, committed). 
  • Empirical Process Control 
  • Describing the function of the inspect-and-adapt process in the Daily Scrum, sprint planning, sprint reviews, and retrospectives.
  • Evaluating three situations when transparency, inspection, and adaption are not working effectively (e.g., when the Daily Scrum is just used for status reporting, when retrospectives are skipped, when the results of a sprint review do not influence the product backlog).

Pre requisites

There is no required prior certificate, educational background, or work experience needed. Scrum Master training is designed to provide students with a strong foundation in Scrum, as well as the professionals in the Agile environment, certain skills to nail the target in the organizations.

Learn Why

Scrum is an integral part of the Agile movement. Agile is a timely reply to the failure of the multi faceted software development project management paradigms (including waterfall) and adopts many principles from lean manufacturing.

The Scrum Master is a facilitator for the Product Owner and the entire team. The Scrum Master performs beyond managing the team. The Scrum Master works to remove any obstacles that are coming in the way of the team to achieve the set goals. This supports the team in remaining creative and productive while ensuring its success is visible to the Product Owner. The Scrum Master also works towards advising the Product Owner how to maximize return on investment for the team.
