Scrum 101- A fundamental look at the agile Scrum Master role

via Udemy


A simple grounding in Scrum Master basics. A first step in your Scrum certification for agile project management newbies

What you'll learn:
  • A fundamental understanding of Scrum theory, definitions and the Scrum Values as per the Scrum guide
  • A thorough review of the 3 roles, the 5 events and the 3 artifacts that make up Scrum
  • An A to Z of Scrum and the role of the Scrum Master, 100% focused on the current Scrum Guide,the definitive guide to Scrum. Anything else just isn't Scrum!
  • This new course, developed in 2019 is specifically designed around the latest Scrum guide.
  • Learn how to get a Certification in Scrum without paying out thousands of dollars
  • A deep dive into the history of Scrum focusing on topics like Lean, Waterfall and the emergence of Agile
  • Combination of animated videos, audio, fact-sheets and quizzes to breakdown Scrum /Scrum Master and present it in a way that helps you to fully understand Scrum

Let me be up front about this course. I cannot teach you everything about being a Scrum Master in an hour or two. I doubt if anyone can. But what I have done is taken the Scrum guide, which is the core of Scrum, stripped it down to the bone and rebuilt it, trying to give lessons that cover all the Scrum basics in a simple and easy to understand set of lessons.

That being said, it is comprehensive in covering all areas of Scrum basics, starting with the history of Scrum, moving onto definitions, theory and values, before a deep dive into the the 3 Scrum roles, the 5 Scrum events and the 3 Scrum Artifacts.

I have cross referenced this course with a number of the popular Scrum master certifications like the PSM1 and the CSM to make sure it covers all the areas needed.

You should take this course if you want a thorough understanding of what Scrum is, either as a beginner, perhaps joining an agile environment for the first time or as a Scrum Master who wants to improve their core knowledge of Scrum.

If you are taking your first scrum master certification, I have also designed another course which provides over 120 exam questions and answers. We believe that these two go hand in hand. The aim is that, at the end, you will be able to pass an exam (like the professional Scrum master (PSM1) exam*)

This new course is developed in Sept 2019. We use a combination of animation videos (not just power-point with voice-overs), audio, fact-sheets and quizzes to breakdown Scrum and the Scrum Master role and present it in a way that helps you to fully understand Scrum

So, if this what you need, I hope you enjoy!
