Helping people understand how to apply Scrum in hard goods product development and production can be challenging.

AND, you can get your Certified ScrumMaster status, too!
Scrum For Hardware: CSM For Product Development xTreme
We are successfully applying a framework to product development that will deliver twice the product in half the time. This framework is called Scrum. It’s been successfully used in software development for almost two decades and some progressive companies, like Boeing, are using it to build physical products. We have the experience to teach you what Scrum is and show you how it works in product development.
We created a course to teach Scrum and other Agile principles to product development people. The explanations of the concepts are worded for product development, the examples are for product development, and the exercises have been developed with product development challenges. As an added benefit to you, you can earn a certification as a Certified Scrum Master (CSM) through an organization called the Scrum Alliance. Unlike other CSM classes, we don’t mention the word “software,” we don’t bring examples from a software background, we don’t treat physical products as if it they are the same as software. Because they aren’t the same. Because hardware people don’t speak software language.
Your instructors, Hubert Smits or Peter Borsella, have extensive experience with Scrum. Together they have 20 years of delivering certified Scrum training. They have coached teams throughout the world, transforming organizations large and small to become agile. They have joined strengths and created the Scrum4HW movement and company to bring Scrum to physical product development. Their motto? If you can kick it, you can Scrum it!
We offer two variations of our course, both require three days. In this CSM for Product Development Xtreme course, you will apply an incremental, learn and adapt approach as you work on a car: a real car, with wheels, seats, the works! (In the CSM for Product Development 2.0 course, you will use LEGOS® and K’NEX to experience building products in teams, using the Scrum framework.)
An Overview of How You’ll Learn to:
After successfully completing this class participants will have tools they can apply immediately with their teams. And, because we will be covering learning objectives that align with the Certified ScrumMaster (CSM) program, those who are interested can also obtain their CSM status. This requires full attendance for the three days and successfully passing the required post-class test.
Additionally, PMPs can self-claim 24 PDUs or Contact Hours with the PMI, and 24 SEUs towards your Scrum Alliance certifications. These PDUs can also be applied towards your 21 Contact Hour requirement for your Agile Certified Practitioner (PMI-ACP) status.
