Understand the Scrum framework basics.
List all core Scrum elements (Roles, Artifacts, Events, Values) and explain their meaning.
Point out the differences between the agile and waterfall approaches.
Become a successful Scrum Team member.
Avoid the most common mistakes and scrum anti-patterns.

Understand the Scrum Poker estimation technique.
Approach the Professional Scrum Master certificate.

A complete Scrum course divided into multiple modules. Each module consists of multiple sections ending with a quiz that helps solidify the knowledge.

The course covers all core Scrum framework elements such as:

  • Scrum Events

  • Scrum Roles,

  • Scrum Artifacts

but also comes with additional modules devoted to Scrum values (a new segment added to Scrum Guide in 2016), differences between the agile and waterfall approaches (to help the student get the broader perspective) and the Professional Scrum Master certification.

All of those modules, combined with a one on one support, Q&A section and additional materials provided by the course authors form a complete package. This Scrum encyclopedia can serve as a knowledge base for those who are already working with Scrum or agile, those who have only heard about it and want to fully understand its principles and to those who are preparing for the PSM certification.

The course was created by two agile enthusiasts who work with Scrum teams and experience Scrum every day. Jarek and Paweł are Scrum Masters who started their adventure with IT projects in a waterfall environment, then worked with multiple teams on introducing the agile change and are currently working as Scrum Masters. Their professional experience allowed them to obtain the „full image” of the agile methodology (and the Scrum framework in particular) and how it relates to the waterfall approach.
