Scrum Master Certification

Practical use of Scrum and obtaining Scrum Master certification

Scrum is one of the best known agile methods, which can be used quickly and productively due to its simple structure and clearly defined roles. With Scrum many projects become faster and Scrum is now used successfully far beyond software development. Use the advantages of Scrum in your projects. Make your projects more agile. We show you how it works!

Seminar Objectives

In today’s dynamic environment, not all projects can be planned ahead in detail. With Scrum you will get to know a method that is very agile in dealing with changes and yet gives projects a reliable structure and direction. In our seminar we explain the most important elements of Scrum with which you can lead projects in sprints to their goal and thereby really satisfy your customers and clients. In addition, you practice the implementation on your own projects, so that you can use Scrum completely or in parts in your practice. If you wish, you can obtain Scrum Master certification after the seminar.

Your Benefit

We alternate theory with many exercises and link your questions with our practical experience. The seminar design is conceptualized in such a way that you experience Scrum directly in action. We show and discuss with you the implementation of the individual elements in a wide variety of project types. You have enough time to get answers to your very personal questions, so that your projects also benefit from Scrum. At the same time you effectively prepare for Scrum Master certification.

Participants receive 16 PDUs or a certificate of further education for IPMA.
