Birmingham, AL (PRWEB) January 21, 2014
The Braintrust Consulting Group announced today that they will hold a Certified ScrumMaster class February 3-4, 2014 in Tampa, FL. 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 Scrum. 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 Tampa because of the vibrant software development industry that resides in South Florida. Braintrust President, Brian Rabon said, “Our decision to host classes in Tampa was based on Tampa’s commitment to the growth of technology-based companies. Through the Tampa Bay Technology Forum, they are creating a friendly environment for encouraging tech talent. We are proud to participate in their technology industry by bringing our world-class training to Tampa.”
Lonnie Weaver-Johnson, CST, will teach the class. Weaver-Johnson is the Agile Practice Lead for The Braintrust Consulting Group. She obtained a degree in communications and then went on to a 20+ year career implementing IT projects and leading people through change. Lonnie enjoys transforming people through coaching, conflict resolution, performance management, and imparting knowledge. Since 2006, Lonnie has worked with Scrum and her experience has taken her across the United States and to foreign lands such as India and Canada.
Participants will receive a printed class manual, Scrum reference card and thumbdrive loaded with articles, class exercises, whitepaper, and more.
