CSM via Online Coaching

Learn Scrum by building a revenue generating product in 15 weeks! By testing your Scrum skills, awareness, and knowledge in a real world situation you will emerge with the confidence to be successful in a wide variety of challenging situations. This program is being offered for the first time and is open to no more than eight people.

Learn Scrum by building a revenue generating product in 15 weeks!

Join us for this novel course which leads to the Scrum Alliance Certified Scrum Master (CSM) certification. You will join a group of no more than eight like-minded people who will work together over the course of 15 weeks to create a revenue-generating product. As the Agile Manifesto says you will learn better ways of developing software by “doing it.”

We will begin by forming a team with a high degree of psychological safety, trust, shared understanding, and alignment. We will then proceed to brainstorm and validate revenue generating ideas. You will then build and launch a product (think Shopify store) and iterate on the product/market fit and the marketing/customer fit. You will encounter challenges and frustrations and learn how to work through them.

The course will be chaperoned by two experienced Scrum Alliance certified coaches who have collectively coached over 200 hundred teams and led agile transformations of several thousand people.
