Submitted by Ben Blanquera on Wed, 09/07/2011 - 3:56pm
Improving Enterprises is offering the 2-day Scrum.org Professional Scrum Master (PSM) certification course, in Columbus, on September 14th-15th. This is the only course currently scheduled in Ohio, through the end of 2011, from any certified Scrum.org trainer: http://courses.scrum.org/classes/show/333
This PSM course teaches students how to use Scrum to optimize value, productivity, and total cost of ownership of systems and products. Students will learn through instruction and team-based exercises, and will be challenged to think on their feet to better understand what to do when they return to their workplaces.
This training is primarily targeted at those responsible for the successful use and/or rollout of Scrum in a project or enterprise.
· Scrum Basics – What is Scrum and how has it evolved?
· Scrum Theory – Why does Scrum work and what are its core principles? How are the Scrum principles different from those of more traditional software development approaches, and what is the impact?
· Scrum Framework and Meetings – How Scrum theory is implemented using time-boxes, roles, rules, and artifacts. How can these be used most effectively and how can they fall apart?
· Scrum and Change – Scrum is different: What does this mean to my project and my organization? How do I best adopt Scrum given the change that is expected?
· Scrum and Total Cost of Ownership – A system isn't just developed, it is also sustained, maintained and enhanced. How is the Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) of our systems or products measured and optimized?
· Scrum Teams - Scrum Teams are self-organizing and cross-functional; this is different from traditional development groups. How do we start with Scrum teams and how do we ensure their success?
· Scrum Planning – Plan a project and estimate its cost and completion date.
· Predictability, Risk Management, and Reporting – Scrum is empirical. How can predictions be made, risk be controlled, and progress be tracked using Scrum?
· Scaling Scrum – Scrum works great with one team. It also works better than anything else for projects or product releases that involve hundreds or thousands of globally dispersed team members. How is scaling best accomplished using Scrum?
