Description

The Bootcamp is designed as a one stop shop to deliver CSM and CSD certification in one week.

Scrum is an Agile framework that can be used to manage and control complex software and product development through iterative cycles and incremental releases. Such Agile approaches are especially suited where requirements are vague or unclear, or designs or technologies are unproven, and as such are an increasingly popular alternative to traditional methods. Of all Agile approaches Scrum is the most popular and the Scrum Certification programme administered by the ScrumAlliance is the most widely recognised.

An Agile Project Manager facilitates, coaches and leads rather than plans, controls and directs. Within Scrum, this role is referred to as the ScrumMaster, to emphasise the difference and to remind the person of their new responsibilities. The Certified Scrum Developer has a good grasp of key XP Programming practices and will be able to use the skills from both courses to support Agile development within their development teams and as such is a very useful skill set for a ScrumMaster.

This Course employs practical exercises, Case Studies and discussions as well as hands-on instruction in the vital Agile software engineering and eXtreme Programming practices that are employed by Scrum teams. This will provide a ScrumMaster /Scrum Developer all they need to be able to drive a successful Scrum Project. Participants who complete the course successfully will first be designated Certified ScrumMaster (CSM), and this is the first step to becoming a Certified Scrum Practitioner (CSP). This Certification includes a two-year membership in the Scrum Alliance, where additional materials and information is available exclusively to CSM's.

This course provides hands-on instruction in the vital Agile software engineering and eXtreme Programming practices that are employed by Scrum teams. Detailed examination and demonstration of Agile development and testing techniques provides a firm theoretical understanding of the benefits and pitfalls of working in an Agile team. Practical exercises based on working case study scenarios enable delegates to explore and experience Agile development and testing first hand, giving them the level of true understanding required to employ the techniques successfully back in the workplace.
