Certification as Certified Scrum Master®


Many crucial aspects of Scrum and Agile are difficult to learn from books. We use interactive simulations and develop many contents interactively together to make key aspects tangible already in the training. In our trainings, we primarily incorporate our experience and our previous approaches so that they can quickly and successfully implement the method in practice. In this sense, the training has proven itself both as a start of your journey to more agility for aspiring Scrum Masters and as a consolidation of your previous journey.

Who is the training for?

The focus of the training is to develop Scrum Masters and enable you to lead, monitor and support teams with a sustainable and good Scrum understanding. It is important to have a good and close cooperation in a self-organized team and this requires the best possible communication, interaction and transparency in a working environment.
Those who come from a company that is beginning to adopt an agile orientation will take away from our training a good basic knowledge and tools to be able to provide new orientation in an ambitious and complex project environment.
Participants who already have Scrum experience will have the chance to refresh or supplement their knowledge, reflect on their own concerns from day-to-day business and come back with new insights and concrete improvement approaches.

And what do I take with me?

  • Reflection of the current understanding of Scrum and its mechanisms.
  • A good understanding of those of Scrum’s underlying intentions that enable you to be effective.
  • An end-to-end simulation helps to understand Scrum and its principles, strategies and tools in implementation, even in a complex project environment.

These questions will be answered in our training:

In which areas is Scrum particularly effective and of great benefit? What do I have to pay attention to in order to experience these advantages?
Which process and principles are Scrum based on?
What understanding of roles is Scrum based on?
How can we use Scrum to promote proactivity, personal responsibility, communication, cooperation and motivation of the employees?
How do we manage to focus on delivering the desired benefits to the customer in a particularly effective way while optimally managing risks?
What makes Scrum agile?

Many aha-experiences through practical exercises open doors for new ways of thinking and approaches completely outside of the possibly familiar plan-driven project management methods.
