Certified Scrum Master Training with Jeff Sutherland


This course is accredited by the Scrum Alliance. The Scrum Alliance provides a list of core concepts that must be covered in the class, each instructor creates his or her own material, allowing courses to differ based on the strengths, interests and experiences of the instructor.

In the Certified Scrum Master training, participants will learn the fundamental principles of Scrum and gain hands-on practice with the Scrum tools (release backlog, sprint backlog, the daily Scrum meeting, tracking progress with a burndown chart, and more). Jeff Sutherland will show how to radically improve the productivity and quality in development teams. See course syllabus for more details.

Upon successful completion of the course and online certification exam, each participant is enrolled as a Certified ScrumMaster, which includes a one-year membership in the Scrum Alliance, where additional Certified ScrumMaster-only material and information are available.

Target Audience

The course is aimed for those who want to lead, participate in, or advance Scrum initiatives in an organization. While it will focus on software development, Jeff coaches Scrum teams in sales, marketing, finance, client services, senior management teams, investment groups, and non-profit organizations.
