About the course

The Scrum Master is responsible for the team being functioning and productive. A Scrum Master's  focus is on coaching the self-organizing team and facilitating there work. As a participant, you will learn what is required of the role of a Scrum Master and how to build a functioning team.

In a number of, sometimes quite intensive, exercises and case studies, you get to learn, practice and experience the feeling of what it takes to lead a Scrum project to success. During the course, theoretical reviews and practical exercises are mixed where you as a participant get to experience the feeling to participate in a Scrum project.

Learning goals

  • The purpose of Scrum and agile working methods. 
  • What the Scrum framework is, the underlying philosophy from Lean and Agile development, why Scrum works and what the challenges are in implementing Scrum.
  • The roles (Scrum Master, Product Owner and Team) work together and what responsibilities and powers each role has.
  • How you as a Scrum Master can help the team to constantly grow and improve and become a cross-functional, self-organizing team.
  • Why team dynamics is a crucial factor in how well the team will function.
  • What a good Product Backlog looks like and how the Product Owner continuously maintains it, so that you can also help the Product Owner to grow.

  • How to measure the Team's speed (Velocity) and how to easily use it to do long-term project planning towards a goal (eg a release) several Sprints away.
  • The importance of visibility and transparency, and how you can create it using Burndown Charts and Task Boards.

Target group

The course is aimed for future Scrum Masters and others who need good knowledge of how the different parts of Scrum work, e.g. project managers, clients, managers, team leaders and developers. 

Previous knowledge

Over the years, we have noticed that those who get the most out of the course are those who have acquired the basic knowledge of Scrum even before the course. We therefore recommend that you have read a book about Scrum before the course, or (if you have less time over) at least read through The Scrum Guide.
