Birmingham, AL (PRWEB) September 12, 2014
The Braintrust Consulting Group, a worldwide leader in Agile transformations, will offer two scrum certification classes: Certified ScrumMaster (CSM) and Certified Scrum Product Owner (CSPO) October 27-30, 2014 at Staybridge Suites – West Des Moines location. The certification classes are intended to teach attendees how to learn, plan, and implement Agile processes with the goal of increasing predictability of delivery, decreasing time-to-market, and improving overall client satisfaction.
Certified ScrumMaster (October 27-28) 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.
