Scrum Foundations - An Introductory Scrum Course Pilot per the Scrum Alliance

One-day introduction to Scrum & Agile, focused on standard core Scrum, as defined by the Scrum Alliance and The Scrum Guide. This private (on-site internal) training covers the same Scrum Foundations learning objectives as required for that portion of the Certified ScrumMaster (CSM) class and Certified Scrum Product Owner (CSPO) class. This course adds an electronic test for students to assess their understanding. This course also includes some special benefits and review of materials by the Scrum Alliance

The Scrum Alliance recognized a need to offer high-quality, private, introductory trainings. To best understand how to meet this need, the Scrum Alliance is conducting an experiment in delivering a Scrum Alliance approved Scrum Foundations offering. SourceCell is one of a small number of trainers and training organizations approved to offer this special course. Approval required review of instructor's skills and course material. This program is expected to last into late 2019.

Test: eLearning assessment (1 hr)

The Scrum Foundations assessment is available as an eLearning module. This assessment has been built with accessory content that will allow participants to continue their foundational Scrum learning after they finish with your course. It contains 20 assessment questions that will measure knowledge components related to each of the learning objectives. Additionally, this eLearning module will provide readings, activities, and videos that will help participants improve upon knowledge gaps they may have when it comes to Scrum.

This self-paced self-assessment tool will allow students to see to see a score for how well they perform on the 20 questions. However, since this is purely a learning tool and this offering is not certified, there is no minimum score students must obtain in order to “pass” the course. This can be completed in person, or participants can choose to complete on their own. For now, the eLearning assessment is only available in English.
