Certified Scrum Master

On Thursday and Friday I went on to a Scrum Master training, held by Jens Østergaard.

The training was very good and I've learned a lot. We've been trying to use Scrum at work for a while and the training clearly showed me the little (large) problems that we had with our attempts and the stuff I need to do to solve them. It's going to be a very interesting couple of months from now on, when I change the way I was working and get this in place.

If you haven't heard of Scrum, and you are interested in new and more effective ways to tackle the complexity of your projects, I *highly* recommend that you take a look at it. It's a simple framework that works very well with Agile engineering practices (Test Driven Development, XP, etc). Check it out!

BTW, we were the first class of publicly certified Scrum Masters in Australia. Thoughtworks has already quite a few certified Scrum Masters too.

I attended your CSM training in Bangalore. I must say that this was THE BEST training I have attended in the last many years. Your way of conducting the session and method of presenting the Scrum concepts was excellent. Examples/case studies were very good and very close to real-life scenarios.I have been practising Scrum since June 2009 and got the answer to many queries in this training. BTW, I passed the CSM exam with 97%."
