Certified Scrum Master

מק"ט: #8399 | משך קורס: 16 שעות אק'

As more and more companies find that the classic waterfall approach for project management does not fit their reality, Agile methodologies emerge as the best solution in the current dynamic project environment, where in many cases not all requirements are clear before the project starts and change requests are inserted often during development. Not less important is the fact that people have come to realize that the ability to estimate development efforts accurately is limited, at best. Scrum is the most popular practical way of implementing the Agile. The course covers the Scrum framework and includes real life situations simulations and exercises, through which Scrum principles are practiced and important insights are reached.
The course provides a formal ScrumAlliance certification as Certified Scrum Master (certification is subject to passing the ScrumAlliance test).
