Certified ScrumMaster (CSM) Course. Melbourne, Australia (October 21st & 22nd)


In this two-day course, you will apply the Scrum framework to build a new product. You will learn what it feels like to be on a Scrum team—experiencing many of the challenges you're likely to face—while being coached by someone involved with the application of Scrum at many organizations. This “learning by doing” style of instruction demands your open mind and active participation.

We will apply the experiential activities to discussion of advanced topics such as how to use Scrum in multiple-team organizations, how to measure progress empirically at a macro level, release planning to maximize ROI, and why such a simple framework disrupts organizations to be the best they can be.

Participants who complete the course will be eligible to complete their CSM certification with the Scrum Alliances' multiple choice examination.

Cancellation Policy

Full refunds are available up until 10 business days before the scheduled event date. Cancellations made within 10 business days of the event will be credited toward future events. However, no refunds will be issued. No refunds or credits will be available for "no-shows." Substitutions will be accepted at any time prior to commencement of the course.

As an added value to course participants, I reserve two seats at each of its public courses for individuals who have already taken a course from me, and would like to take it a second time. This allows participants to brush up on their Scrum basics. The offer is provided on a first-come, first-served basis and must be used for the same course as the original (i.e., an individual who completed a CSM course may enroll in another CSM course, but not a Product Owner course). In addition, this offer is only available within the first six months following the original course. Please contact me as early as possible to reserve your seat.
