Overview
Agile has caught the attention of business leaders in the UK and globally as a means of managing change, reducing time to market, eliminating waste and attracting and retaining customers. This two-day course trains delegates in all the key aspects of the Scrum Framework to prepare delegates to take the Professional Scrum Master I exam at Scrum.org.

This two day course provides a clear and solid insight into what Scrum is, the fundamental principles and values and gives delegates hands-on experience using Scrum. This will better enable delegates to prepare for and achieve the recognised Professional Scrum Master I Certification with Scrum.org. Achieving a Scrum Master certification will demonstrate a good understanding of the framework and exhibits a dedication to continued professional development.
