Birmingham, AL (PRWEB) January 27, 2014
The Braintrust Consulting Group announced that they will host a Certified ScrumMaster class February 11-12, 2014 in Des Moines, IA. 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 ideal for 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 Iowa because of the state’s reputation as one of the best places for business and careers, according to Forbes Magazine. Braintrust President, Brian Rabon said, “Our decision to host classes in Iowa was based on Des Moines’ commitment to the growth of technology-based companies. Through the efforts of the Technology Association of Iowa, Des Moines boasts a strong and talented ecosystem of technology professionals. We are proud to participate in their technology industry by bringing our world-class training to Des Moines.”
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.
As a takeaway, participants will receive a printed class manual, Scrum reference card and thumbdrive loaded with articles, class exercises, whitepaper, and more.
