Who Should Attend this CSM Training Course

  • This course has the highest value for practicing ScrumMasters, but can also be useful to Product Owners, members of Scrum Development teams, managers, Human Resource (HR) specialists and anyone else who needs to appreciate the role and competencies required of a ScrumMaster.

Course Preparation
