Who Should Attend?
Anyone wanting to increase the speed and efficiency of their processes
Organizations and product development teams are often overwhelmed with contrasting programs and competing priorities. They assume customer requirements are known and static—when they never are. Their workflow is full of delays, handoffs, rework and other forms of waste, extending lead times beyond what’s reasonable to compete or to meet strategically important deadlines. Not with Lean Agile.
The Certified Lean Agile Scrum Master for Project Management course teaches teams to produce products or complete projects in much shorter periods of time, with fewer errors, by managing the development cycle in a collaborative environment with customers and stakeholders.
Lean Methods Group has partnered with Peopleside, a SCRUMstudy approved Authorized Training Partner, to offer this unique course. Taught by SCRUMstudy Certified Trainers(SCT™) and Agile coaches, this course differs from other Agile methodology courses because of its focus on the value-oriented discipline of Lean and the need to drive adoption in using these approaches. You won’t learn to automate waste nor will your knowledge be limited to simply what the steps are. Instead, you learn how to lead teams to think differently, prioritize value and remove waste from processes and requirements.
In this course, participants not only learn the Scrum Master role, but how to run a successful Scrum team and all its roles. You’ll also learn how to lead multiple teams working concurrently on a development project. Plus, through hands-on simulations, you will complete two cycles of creation, practically applying the knowledge learned about Lean Agile and leading Lean Agile teams.
