In the course Scrum Master participants learn to become a professional and officially recognized Scrum Master in two days. A Scrum Master ensures that a Scrum project is managed in the right direction. The Scrum Master is the facilitator of a good process.
The course Scrum Master starts with a discussion of the most important features of the Scrum software process. The role of the Scrum Master, which is of great importance for the success of Scrum, is discussed.
Then the roles, tools and meetings of the Scrum process are covered. It is explained how the Product Owner is responsible for the content of the project being worked on while the Scrum Master monitors the process.
The role of the Scrum Master in relation to the team is also treated. The training covers the tools available to a Scrum Master for guiding self-managing teams.
Next attention is paid to how the Scrum Master ensures that the Scrum sprint planning meeting really takes place. During the Scrum sprint planning, where the entire project team is present, the work that has to be done in a sprint is planned. The Scrum Master ensures that the goal is clear to everyone.
The implementation of the Scrum process can have far-reaching consequences for organizations and difficulties can arise as a result of which Scrum does not fully shows all its benefits. During the training you will learn to apply Scrum based on a practical case and you will learn how to coach a team in applying Scrum.
After the training you can take a Scrum.org exam online. This allows you to become a Professional Scrum Master. The exam is not included in the training and is optional.

All our courses are classroom courses in which the students are guided through the material on the basis of an experienced trainer with in-depth material knowledge. Theory is always interspersed with exercises.
We also do custom classes and then adjust the course content to your wishes. On request we will also discuss your practical cases.
The course times are from 9.30 to 16.30. But we are flexible in this. Sometimes people have to bring children to the daycare and other times are more convenient for them. In good consultation we can then agree on different course times.
We take care of the computers on which the course can be held. The software required for the course has already been installed on these computers. You do not have to bring a laptop to participate in the course. If you prefer to work on your own laptop, you can take it with you if you wish. The required software is then installed at the start of the course.
Our courses are generally given with Open Source software such as Eclipse, IntelliJ, Tomcat, Pycharm, Anaconda and Netbeans. You will receive the digital course material to take home after the course.
The course includes lunch that we use in a restaurant within walking distance of the course room.
The courses are planned at various places in the country. A course takes place at a location if at least 3 people register for that location. If there are registrations for different locations, the course will take place at our main location, Houten which is just below Utrecht. A course at our main location also takes place with 2 registrations and regularly with 1 registration. And we also do courses at the customer’s location if they appreciate that.
At the end of each course, participants are requested to evaluate the course in terms of course content, course material, trainer and location. The evaluation form can be found at https://www.klantenvertellen.nl/reviews/1039545/spiraltrain?lang=en. The evaluations of previous participants and previous courses can also be found there.
