SCRUM Master training with certification
Sprint, Backlog, Product Owner, SCRUM Master: These are terms a certified SCRUM Master should be familiar with. SCRUM is a popular model for project and product management, especially in agile software development. During a one-day workshop, the SCRUM coaches Felix Huschka and Julia Obermaier of Valiton, a IT service provider at Burda, introduced these terms to 15 students of the Elite Graduatre Program “Honors in Business, Economics and Information Systems“ and gave many practical exercises.
In a Lego simulation, SCRUM teams had to construct an office building. At first, the students had to agree on an estimate of the effort required for the individual customer requirements (SCRUM Planning). In subsequent hands-on sprints, the students gained knowledge about the use of SCRUM in everyday project work. The building’s construction was continuously optimized from sprint to sprint, taking into account the detailed customer requirements.
After the SCRUM Master workshop, the students had the necessary knowledge to successfully complete the examination at SCRUM.org to achieve the “Professional SCRUM Master I” certificate.
