Acquire the skills and knowledge of the Scrum Master to maximize the value and productivity of your team. This course allows anyone who wants to apply Scrum to understand its mechanics and implications.
The goal of the Professional Scrum Master course is to give participants a solid foundation in Scrum and its fundamentals so that they can decide how to take advantage of them in their reality. Participants learn why some decisions are better than others, how some favor agility while others lead us back to a cascading model. They will also learn how to use Scrum productivity indicators to measure the results of their decisions and how to optimize those results.
Developers, architects, analysts, project managers and product managers will receive tips to help them implement this Agile approach. For people who want to obtain Scrum Master certification, this course is a must.
