Chances are that you aced your CSM test (if you went on the 2-day course), but how well do you really know the Scrum Guide?
I’m not talking about how well could you implement Scrum, just how well you know what is written on the 17 pages written by Ken Schwaber and Jeff Sutherland, the originators of Scrum as we know it.
I’m going to propose that you don’t actually know it as well as you think.
Now I’m not saying that you have to be able to recite it backwards in order to use the Scrum framework, but one could argue that your chances of success in using the framework are reduced if you don’t know the basics.
So we have created a short, free quiz for you to take to test yourself. It is based on the latest version of the Scrum Guide (July 2016) and consists of 20 questions. You have 20 minutes to complete the quiz.
The test is anonymous, so don’t worry about being shamed.
Want to swot up on your knowledge?
Well, the great news is that we are now running our hugely popular 2-day course in the beautiful Oxfordshire countryside. Set in 90-acres, Howbery Park has more greenery than you could possibly need!
Through games, hands-on practice and project simulations, you’ll be armed with the knowledge of how to use Scrum on a day-to-day basis and apply it to your context. The course is aimed at all members of a Scrum team, as well as managers and execs wanting to know more about this popular approach.
Breakfast and lunch, as well as morning and afternoon refreshments, for both days is all included in the course price. And, of course, there’s ample free parking because you’re in the countryside!
