Scrum Master Certification Training Event in Detroit, Michigan

Scrummaster Certification Classes in Austin, TexasIf you’ve been in project management for any length of time, you’ve surely heard of the Scrum framework. Perhaps your company is even preparing to switch over to this new, Agile methodology. While it might seem a bit daunting, it’s actually an inherently simple, extremely sensible approach to project management. To learn how Scrum works – and how you can play a key role – join us for our Scrum Master certification training event in Detroit, Michigan.

What on Earth is Scrum?

The Scrum Alliance breaks it down quite nicely: “Scrum is an Agile framework for completing complex projects. Scrum originally was formalized for software development projects, but it works well for any complex, innovative scope of work. The possibilities are endless.” To break that down even further, Scrum is a simple, sensible framework for developing any product.

We’ll discuss the framework in depth during our Scrum Master certification training event in Detroit, Michigan, but here’s a brief look at how it works:

  1. The Product Backlog. The Product Owner makes a prioritized wish list of every element required in a given product.
  2. The Sprint Planning. The team takes the first item on the Product Backlog and plans out a time frame, budget, and other aspects surrounding that item’s completion.
  3. The Sprint Backlog. The team lists everything in a prioritized list and begins to develop the product based on this list.
  4. The Sprint Review. By the end of a Sprint (usually a 2-4 week stretch), a potentially shippable product is ready. The product is reviewed, and if all is up to snuff, the product is shipped out.
  5. Back to the Beginning. The team takes the next item on the Product Backlog and gets to work planning the next Sprint.

The framework is deceptively simple, and extremely practical. Of course, an approach like this requires a bit of a paradigm shift – and that’s why we’re here. During our Scrum Master certification training event in Detroit, Michigan, we’ll equip you with the skills and tools you’ll need to run an efficient, productive Scrum team.
