Scrum Master second day
On a classic Scrum Master by ALL course we train people in two days so that they can begin to implement Scrum in their organization. It is only a start, but the newly hatched Scrum Masters can assume the role with integrity and credibility. The training course delivers inspiration, contemplation and practical exercises to encourage participants to reflect and gain new perspectives. We emphasize teamwork as well as the individual – how to help them reach their full potential and remove the barriers that are holding people back.
This one day course can be taken in extension of the one-day Introduction course. The combination of the two courses allows you to be by ALL (Agile Lean Leaderhip) as a Scrum Master
Steve Denning of Forbes Magazine is quoted to have said that Scrum is ‘a major management discovery’. Scrum makes it possible to create solutions even though we find ourselves in complex situations. This is achieved by introducing boundaries such as working in iterations, clear and distinct roles with a precise responsibility, regular meetings and total clarity and transparency in the process. The Scrum Master’s responsibility is to see to that the process is followed, obstacles are removed and optimization is introduced.
This hands-on, interactive course will teach you how to assume the responsibility of Scrum Master with confidence. The theoretical material is taught using new, creative and practical exercises throughout the course. Participants will attain a new perspective and approach to project management, estimation, improving visibility and much more. The course also offers a thorough survey of the advantages the Scrum method compared to traditional project management in projects, where one has to deal with uncertainties.
