16 hours – On-site or Virtual with live certified trainer

There being so many Scrum Master courses and certifications in the market, Global Lynx, in partnership with Carmel Rush, Inc., offers a unique training program that will equip you with everything you need to become a Scrum Master, not only in theory, but also in practice.

Beyond what is covered in most traditional Scrum programs, this Scrum course offers a pragmatic approach to the topics covered, at the highest level of delivery quality, being built on the experience that Carmel Rush has obtained throughout many years of practice in agile, lean, training, and coaching, and the many years of experience that Global Lynx has in the IT consulting and training fields.

About Scrum and the Scrum Master

Scrum is the most popular Agile framework. It is an adaptive, iterative, fast, flexible, and effective method designed to deliver significant value quickly and throughout a project.

Scrum Masters are facilitators who ensure that the Scrum Team is provided with an environment conducive to completing the project successfully. The Scrum Master guides, facilitates, and teaches Scrum practices to everyone involved in the project, clears impediments for the team, and ensures that Scrum processes are being followed.

Every implementation of Scrum is different.

Teams and organizations apply Scrum within their context, but the fundamental framework always remains the same.

Goal of this course

The goal of this course is to prepare the student to:

  • Retake the Scrum Alliance Certified ScrumMaster (CSM) exam (e.g. 2nd try)
