Workshop Agenda
The workshop includes all the material required by the Scrum Alliance for its Certified ScrumMaster CSM® certification, along with stories, tips, tricks, and practices to take the theory of Scrum and put it into effective action in your organization.


Learn Scrum by Using Scrum
Short, focused presentations cover the Values, Roles, Artifacts, and Events of Scrum. Beyond the basics, we also explore Scrum in action - facilitating team interactions, working with the team's backlog of work, and getting work "Done" (or perhaps it's Done-Done)!


Get Hands-On Experience with Scrum
By the conclusion of this dynamic workshop - you will be prepared with the skills, knowledge, and experience to not only explain Scrum to colleagues, clients, or interviewers but also to put Scrum into action with your team. Become a catalyst for change by helping your teams and programs apply these concepts to become resilient, learning organizations able to thrive in today’s emerging markets.

  • How soon can I get my CSM® certification? Upon completing your participation in the full workshop, a link will be emailed to you from the Scrum Alliance to access their online certification exam. We often see workshop participants complete their certification exam and become a Certified Scrum Masters within 24 hours of completing the workshop.
  • Can I miss several hours of the workshop and still be certified? No. If you miss more than 1 hour of the workshop, you will not be eligible for certification but you will be welcome to attend the rest of the workshop.
  • What do I need to bring to class? You'll need a computer with a microphone and speakers. Use https://fast.com to test your internet connection. After the download numbers stop, use the "more" option to calculate your upload speed. You'll need 5 down / 1 up - and more is better. Now, while you're in class you'll be actively using your computer to participate in exercises, so plan to peek at your email only during a break or at lunch.


Here's what students say about the online workshop:

"Bernie’s classes are inspiring, engaging, some of the most fun I’ve had in a classroom while learning and practicing leadership. I highly recommend this course." -- Michelle W.
