About the Book

Part of the ScrumMaster role is to ensure that everyone on their team is educated about Scrum and to evangelise Scrum to their organisation. Over the past few years we have come across many ScrumMasters who have great intentions of running training but then get bogged down in the planning and preparation and don't ever get round to actually doing it.

We have been training teams in Scrum for about three years. Over the past year we have trained Certified ScrumMaster classes worldwide. During this time we have spent many hours preparing training plans and creating workbooks, flipcharts and slides. Our materials have been continually refined from feedback after each course. All our training uses Training from the Back of the Room principles.

This book is a collection of all of our materials. It will help you plan and deliver interactive, fun Scrum training for anything from a short workshop on a particular topic to a full two-day course. If you buy the book you will also get access to our slides, participant workbook, exercise handouts and training plans.
