Differentiate yourself. Differentiate your mindset.

 

Taking Certified Scrum Master® training from Innovel is fun and engaging. Participants learn by doing activities, discussing real scenarios and collaborating with team members on exercises. Unlike most corporate training, Innovel’s Certified Scrum Master® uses proven adult learning methods that improve retention by stimulating the rational, physical, emotional, and social facets of participants. Innovel Certified Scrum Master uses techniques that Innovel trainers are very highly regarded experts who have been using Scrum since 2002 and teaching it since 2006.

Over 90% of all Innovel students “definitely recommend” Innovel’s training to their colleagues. In fact our our biggest business is repeat customers getting training for others within their company.

The course covers more than the basics of Scrum as outlined by the Scrum Alliance, in fact we give away the Certified Scrum Master Study Guide for the exam. Our goal is to provide you with concrete ideas you can implement the day after in your company. Our students learn how to implement Scrum with an Agile mindset, so they can adapt to the many possible issues that will arise. When you leave an Innovel Certified Scrum Master course you will have a new set of tools and a more effective way to do work and complete projects wherever your career takes you.

The vast majority of attendees do obtain certification. There are a few reasons someone may not achieve CSM status after a course:

  • They did not meet the trainer’s expectations of attendance so they are ineligible for CSM status.
  • They did not complete the homework assigned to make up for missed course time to the trainer's expectations.
  • After the training they did not follow directions in the Welcome email from the Scrum Alliance inviting them to set up a profile to gain access to the online CSM test.
  • After setting up a profile, they did not complete and/or pass the online CSM test administered by the Scrum Alliance.
