The Braintrust Consulting Group will offer Certified ScrumMaster (CSM) and Certified Scrum Product Owner (CSPO) training classes in Minneapolis, Minnesota at Country Inn & Suites - Vadnais Heights, April 21-24, 2014.
Certified ScrumMaster (April 21-22) class is an in-depth two-day 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 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.
