Partner event - Certified Scrum Master (CSM) Training

Certified Scrum Master (CSM) Training
The PMI® Keystone Chapter and Harrisburg University

This certification course is an immersive exploration of the agile mindset, and associated buisness benefits.  The program is intended both for agile newcomers and experienced practitioners wanting a new perspective.  You learn the WHY behind agile methods, such as better customer satisfaction, better visibility, better morale, and other drivers.  You also gain hands-on experience using the Scrum framework, the most common approach to HOW to achieve agility.

Learn techniques such as:

  • Agile manifesto
  • Daily SCRUMs
  • Sprints and Scrum Masters
  • Definition of done
  • Backlogs and burndowns
  • Shippable increment


The Agenda is aligned to the certification learning objectives defined by the Scrum Alliance.  However, the course features a dynamic priortization based on the needs of the group.  This way, participants get double value of required core knowledge, as well as custom topics.

Monday, April 1 | 9:00 am - 5:00 pm

  • Required Topics
  • Agile Manifesto
  • Benefit of Increments
  • Iterative Thinking
  • SCRUM Framework
  • Roles and Responsibilities

Tuesday, April 2 | 9:00 am - 5:00 pm

  • Ala Carte Topics
  • Product Backlog
  • Forecasting Budget & Scheduling
  • Project Simulation
  • Efficient Productive Teams
  • Quality


The course uses multi-modal learning with video, story telling, dialog, and kinetic activities.  The use of hands-on practice and real-world examples boots knowledge acquisition and retention.


Case studies and research show agile methods promote more visibility, faster time to market with better quality products, while increasing adaptability and visibility at the same time.  But these results come from unconventional practices like self organization, cross-disciplinary terms, small increments, and frequent inspection.  These practices do not come naturally.  You need training.


With nearly 1 Million holders, the Certified ScrumMaster (CSM) program is the most popular beginner-level agile certification in the industry.


The course pricing includes all course materials, exam fees, and breakfast and lunch on both days.
