Certified Scrum Professional – ScrumMaster®

qualification for the entire crew

Dear customers,

Since our CSP-SM training is designed as a remote blended learning program, it is NOT affected by the current developments around Covid-19 (Coronavirus) and takes place as usual.

However, we consider the current situation not only as a challenge, but also as an opportunity: Therefore, we will additionally discuss possibilities and examples of remote collaboration within a team. In this way you as a participant build up additional know-how that is particularly useful at the moment.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.

This is the last step of the training series “Path to CSP” of the Scrum Alliance with the goal to become a “Certified Scrum Professional – ScrumMaster® (CSP-SM)”.
This is an innovative blended learning program, where you decide on your own path and the order of the contents. You will work on 14 main topics from a broad spectrum, from initiating agile transformations, lean thinking and Kanban to executive coaching.

Unlike many other CSP-SM courses, this program accompanies you for many months if you like, and allows you to seriously pursue continuous development, at the pace that suits you, but with personal and qualified feedback from your trainer. Bring questions from your everyday life to the live sessions. Get involved in practical challenges that not only help you but also your team.
