Scrum Alliance CSM Workshop by Arne Ahlandar (Senior CST with 25 years of Global Experience)
Scrum is a framework for developing and sustaining complex products. This definition consists of Scrum’s roles, events, artifacts and the rules that bind them together. Ken Schwaber and Jeff Sutherland developed Scrum. Scrum is a process framework that has been used to manage complex product development since the early 1990s. Scrum is not a process or a technique for building products; rather, it is a framework within which you can employ various processes and techniques. Scrum makes clear the relative efficacy of your product management and development practices so that you can improve.
The Scrum framework consists of Scrum Teams and their associated roles, events, artifacts and rules. Each component within the framework serves a specific purpose and is essential to Scrum’s success and usage. The Certified Scrum Master (CSM) certification validates your knowledge and experience. It gives you an advantage over traditional/waterfall professionals. Our approach to Certified Scrum Master training course is bit different.
