COURSE DESCRIPTION

In both courses, you will learn the most important and practical aspects of Agile, including all of Scrum. Unlike traditional Scrum Master courses, both courses are extremely practical and also cover agile practices outside of Scrum. This helps you ensure your team performs at a higher level than before. Scrum is a GREAT start, AND there are more great agile practices out there that help you perform even better.

The courses give you the fundamentals to build a winning team and be an exceptionally good Scrum Master. The courses are compatible with and rest firmly on internationally established agile frameworks, such as Scrum, XP, SAFe®, and DSDM. Foundation is more focused on Scrum, while Advanced introduces other and more advanced agile practices that help you succeed even better.

We follow a natural flow of work and trace a clear chronological path throughout both courses. This makes it easier to understand how and when each practice should be used.

Professional Scrum Master certifications are included.

No prerequisites

Due to the way the course is taught, it fits both new and experienced scrum masters and team leaders. People with different backgrounds pick up different depths and we get great reviews from both. We get quite a few experienced teams and scrum masters on this FOUNDATION course, who want to ensure they have the foundations in place and compare what they do to “the standard” before they go ADVANCED.

This means there is no prerequisite knowledge required, but it’s an advantage to have some experience leading or taking part in teams.

You know Scrum reasonably well.

Due to the way the course is taught, the course will work even for those that are not super-experienced. However, the basic idea is that you have a firm understanding of basic Scrum and you are well aware of all Scrum values, principles, practices and events. You know Scrum and you want to take the step.

This means we recommend FOUNDATION first if you can. It will work reasonably well for you if you have some Scrum team experience, and it is quite possible to take the courses in reverse order, even though FOUNDATION first is to be recommended.
