This comprehensive course contains a series of several training sessions that bring together a set of knowledge of what a good Scrum Master should know. Experienced Scrum Masters will introduce you to Scrum and share their experiences in agile transformations. You’ll get to try a number of things hands-on and simulate working in sprints with the help of Lego.
Scrum is quite widespread here, but many people don’t have much experience with Kanban anymore. Still, Kanban is still preferable to Scrum for large teams. This is especially true for teams where you have frequent changes in priorities and frequent changes in assignments break up your sprints. In our course, you’ll learn how to use Kanban practically. You’ll find out that it’s not just a whiteboard, which many people incorrectly associate it with, and how to know when Kanban is right for you. You’ll also learn how to identify sources of waste in your team and how Value Stream Mapping can help you do that.
In the next part you will learn how to write proper user stories assignments for agile development teams. In the course, we will practice writing user stories and provide feedback on them. You’ll learn where the most common mistakes are made when writing so you can help your teams with their writing as well. You’ll learn how to spot a user story that’s too big, and we’ll try splitting it into several smaller ones using splitting patterns.
You can arrange to add content to the course on topics that interest you, for example focusing on how to do retrospectives with your team to make them useful to the team. The Scrum Master course is comprehensive and therefore it is of course possible to split this course into multiple parts.

- Types of tests in agile teams
