I was asked recently two related questions about Scrum and my Scrum Courses:
These two questions are more related than they seem. I offer four open courses. Scrum Jumpstart, Practical Product Owner, Certified Scrum Master and Certified Scrum Product Owner (the latter two in cooperation with Certified Scrum Trainer Andreas Schliep).
The Scrum Jumpstart course is about getting people informed and excited about Scrum. It’s the best way to get your feet wet with Scrum.
This is also the course to get your manager into Scrum. Take him or her with you, so that s/he can share your excitement and experience with Scrum. It’s not just about theory, it’s about doing Scrum and doing exercises and role plays which make the advantages of Scrum obvious and intuitive. Scrum is an agile management practice, so your manager should feel right at home.
Scrum Jumpstart is also the course to send your team to as they are getting ready to start working with Scrum. The course focuses on the practices you need to work in a Scrum project. No fancy stuff (well, maybe a little bit), but afterward they can really do Scrum and are motivated to try it out!
The Certified Scrum Master (for advanced users) is as the name implies, for mastering advanced topics. How do handle multiple distributed teams across time-zone and language barriers? Andreas Schliep and I co-teach the course to give you contrasting (and sometimes even contradicting) points of view. The contents is largely determined by the participants, so an optimal learning experience is achieved. And of course, if certification is important to you, you need this course.
The Practical Product Owner and Certified Scrum Product Owner Courses are for learning how plan and manage agile projects, deal with the Scrum Team, and act as the interface between the Scrum Team and Customers, Users, Steering Committees and other Stakeholders. In short: How to be good Product Owner. If you are a manager, product or program manager, consultant or product owner in a Scrum or agile environment, these courses are for you.
At open courses in Switzerland or Germany, I teach in German. (I am looking for partnerships to organize French courses in France and maybe Italian courses in Italy — please contact me). In-house courses can be taught in English, German or French (and maybe Italian).
Ken Schwaber will come to Switzerland to teach a CSM Course in Zurich. Ken is co-inventor of Scrum and a driving force behind its adoption. A chance to learn and master Scrum, direct from the source.
Figured out which course is right for you? These links will take you to registration…
