Birmingham, AL (PRWEB) January 20, 2014
The Braintrust Consulting Group announced today that they will hold a Certified ScrumMaster class January 28-29, 2014 in Memphis, Tennessee. This announcement was part of Braintrust’s unveiling of their national class schedule for 2014.
The two-day Certified ScrumMaster class offers attendees an in-depth immersion into the world of Agile Product Management. Scrum is a simple yet incredibly powerful set of principles and practices that help teams deliver products in short cycles, enabling fast feedback, continual improvement, and rapid adaptation to change. As the leading Agile development framework, Scrum has predominantly been used for software development, but it is also proving to be effective in efforts far beyond. This class is full of practical, real world techniques that can be implemented immediately at your workplace. Hands-on exercises demonstrate key concepts and let you experience the benefits of Scrum firsthand.
The class is targeted to IT Professionals (Architects, BAs, DBAs, Developers, Testers, etc.), IT Leadership (Managers/Directors/VPs/CIOs/CTOs), and Project Managers. Members of the Project Management Institute will earn 14 Professional Development Units (PDUs) toward maintaining their existing credentials by attending this class.
The Braintrust Consulting Group chose Memphis because of their recent public and private sector investment in technology and software development. Braintrust President, Brian Rabon said, “Our decision to host classes in Memphis was based on the city’s commitment to investing in the technology sector. Through EmergeMemphis, they are currently promoting their efforts to be an entrepreneurial hub for technology-based companies. We are proud to contribute to their technology industry by bringing our world-class training to Memphis.”
Tom Mellor, CST, will teach the class. Mellor is a seasoned professional who has been actively involved in business and IT for over 36 years, working in both large and small companies. A Certified Scrum Trainer since 2008, he is passionate about the adoption and use of agile-based product development approaches.
The class will be held at the Holiday Inn Express-Memphis location and participants will receive a printed class manual, Scrum reference card and thumbdrive loaded with articles, class exercises, whitepaper, and more.
