About the Event

When companies begin their Agile transformation, one of their first challenges is understanding the roles necessary to support the initiative; one of the most critical but often a new concept for many companies new to Agile delivery, is the role of the ‘Scrum Master’. The most frequently asked question is ‘What makes the Scrum Master role different from that of a Project Manager?’ The differences are important and, in our experience, understanding them is crucial to Agile success.

This two day workshop covers all the topics in the Programme Delivery as a Scrum Master Primer workshop but in greater detail. The workshop provides an in-depth introduction using practical exercises are case studies to get started in your career as an Agile Scrum Master within a relaxed and informal environment, without the impending pressure of having to pass a formal certification exam.
