Become Certified Scrum Master

Dr. Jeff Sutherland, Scrum Training Institute, USA

Jeff started the first Scrum at Easel Corporation in 1993 and worked with Scrum Co-Creator Ken Schwaber, to formalize the Scrum development process at OOPSLA'95. In the same year, Sutherland provided Kent Beck all background information on the creation of Scrum. XP engineering practices then evolved along with SCRUM and the two leading Agile development processes work well together. Scrum and XP are the most widely used Agile processes worldwide and their creators are authors of the Agile Manifesto. Jeff has been VP of Engineering and/or CTO for 9 software product companies, developing Scrum in 4 of them and introducing today's standard Scrum methodology to 5 of them. He is currently CEO of Scrum, Inc. and Senior Advisory to OpenView Venture Partners. In this role he is Agile coach and trainer to 20 portfolio companies. His venture company runs all of its operations with Scrum and is one of many companies running Scrum in management, marketing, and sales, as well as software development.

Scrum Certification

This two-day course provides the basic principles of Scrum by the Co-Creator of Scrum. It allows participants to assess their Scrum implementations using the practices that produce the best Scrum teams worldwide. It gives participants hands-on experience using Scrum by simulating Scrum projects. The first simulation provides experience with the basic Scrum practice in a 59-minute Scrum through a non-technical group exercise. The second simulation leads participants through the entire planning and estimation phase of setting up the first Scrum.
The third simulation provides hands on experience of executing a Scrum pulling from the Product Backlog, creating a Sprint Backlog, and delivering velocity of production during a Scrum. The secret sauce that Dr. Sutherland uses to coach over 20 venture funded portfolio companies will be described. This will show how participants can practically apply the Scrum roles (Product Owner, ScrumMaster, and Team), the Scrum meetings (Sprint Planning, Daily Scrum, and Sprint Review with a demo and Retrospective), and the Scrum artifacts (Product Backlog, Sprint Backlog, Burndown Charts, and Working Software) to double and then quadruple the productivity and quality of their teams. Participants will learn how to scale Scrum projects to any size, how to distribute them locally and globally, and how to use outsourcing to produce extreme business value.

Dr. Sutherland’s courses are used to train every person in all roles in some companies. Participants are using Scrum on senior management teams, in marketing, sales, consulting, client services, installations, and support, as well as development. While successful completion of the course designates each participant Certified ScrumMaster, the course is designed to help anyone in any role in a Scrum company, as well as being the best available training for ScrumMasters. This certification includes a one-year membership in the Scrum Alliance, where additional ScrumMaster-only material and information are available.

Participants Will Learn:
• Proven practices developed in nine companies where Dr. Sutherland has been CTO or VP
of Engineering
• How to set up Scrum teams and begin work in the most effective way
• How to create, prioritize, and estimate user stories for the product backlog
• The role of management in a company powered by self-organizing teams
• How to help both new and experienced teams be more successful
