Sliger Consulting, Inc. offers both classes and coaching:
Certified ScrumMaster (CSM) – a two-day course that explains the Scrum framework, its principles, and practices. Actual certification is awarded later, after students pass a test given by the Scrum Alliance. A more in-depth three-day CSM course is also available, which satisfies the 21 contact hour prerequisite for the PMI-ACP® credential.
Certified Scrum Product Owner (CSPO) -- a two-day course that focuses on Scrum from the viewpoint of the Product Owner. The Product Owner is the individual on the Scrum Team that speaks for the end-user community and has the authority to make decisions about the product. This class will help aspiring Product Owners learn about the importance of vision, product roadmaps, and the creation and maintenance of the product backlog. Certification is awarded upon successful completion of the course.
Agile Project Management – a three-day course designed for traditionally trained software project managers who are familiar with the Project Management Institute’s A Guide to the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK® Guide) and want to learn more about their new role in an agile environment. This course satisfies the 21 contact hour prerequisite for the PMI-ACP® and includes test topics.
Additional courses, such as Introduction to Lean-Agile, Introduction to Scrum, Getting Started with Kanban, and Introduction to Agile for Executives are also available as private workshops held in your own facilities. We can also customize a course based on your needs. For information on private and/or customized training, contact us.
