All CSM courses are taught by Certified Scrum Trainers.

This course also satisfies two elements of the CSD track: Scrum Introduction and Elective.


"Understand and apply an agile framework for project management – Scrum. This course allows delegates to gain an appreciation of the Scrum framework and how to apply it in their own context. A varied mix of both theory and practical exercises, makes this a popular choice for clients wishing to start a more agile journey towards a high-quality and frequent delivery structure. This course is aimed at all members of a delivery team, and will introduce the roles and responsibilities within an effective Scrum team."
