View the Professional Scrum Master Training Course Outline

Agile is an incremental, iterative framework for project management and software development - where requirements and solutions evolve through collaboration between self-organizing cross-functional teams. This disciplined project management process involves:

  • A leadership philosophy that encourages teamwork, self-organization and accountability
  • A set of engineering best practices intended to allow for rapid delivery of high-quality software
  • A business approach that aligns development with customer needs and company goals.

The primary mechanism to implement agile techniques is Scrum – a lightweight framework with specific responsibilities laid out for business and development.

This course is the standard course developed by the inventor of scrum, Ken Schwaber. The Professional Scrum Master course covers Scrum basics, including the framework, mechanics, and roles of Scrum.
