What will you learn during the Certified Scrum Master (CSM) training?

What does facilitating mean, and how can you best coach your team? After that we take a deep-dive. A Certified Scrum Master knows how to work with the Developers, support a Product Owner and how to add true value to the entire organization. What does your role involve? What are you responsible for? And, what kind of behavior supports or hinders success?


  • Scrum & Agile: what is Scrum, and what are the Agile principles and mindset?
  • Scrum Framework: what does a Scrum proces look like? And, what are the Scrum values?
  • Scrum Team: the characteristics of all roles within a Scrum Team. And, how to start a Scrum Team?
  • Scrum Events: the purpose of every Scrum event, with a focus on sprints, and role of participants
  • Scrum Artifacts: what are Scrum Artifacts and why do we use them?
