  • Certified ScrumMaster Workshop
    12/08/2016 - 12/09/2016
    Location To Be Determined ,CO

    Even projects that have solid, well-defined project plans encounter some degree of change and waste. Shifting market conditions, budget cuts, staff restructuring, or any number of influences will disrupt the best plan while contributing to customer dissatisfaction and staff discouragement. Moreover, projects that begin with changing or unclear requirements make it difficult to even establish project expectations.

    Scrum is the agile development process that allows teams to deliver usable software periodically throughout the life of the project, absorbing change and new requirements as the project proceeds.

    Beginning with the history of agile development and moving through the disciplines promoted by Scrum, you will gain a comprehensive understanding of the Scrum methodology while specifically reviewing the behaviors expected of a ScrumMaster.

    Certification:

    Upon completion of the class, your information will be submitted to the Scrum Alliance and you will become eligible to take the Certified Scrum Master (CSM) online exam. To be eligible for the exam, you must be present for the full duration of the two days of training and participate during the training session. Passing this exam will earn you the Certified Scrum Master designation.

    Bringing about the reaction you want from others and expanding your influence require insights that go beyond the actual process of influencing and into the psychology of what truly prompts us to say "yes" or "no."

    This two-day course explores these psychological triggers and how you can use this knowledge to bring about not only for compliance but also for mutually desirable outcomes. You'll uncover persuasion techniques that most people don't even know exist, and you'll learn how to build your influence by applying these principles to any number of business interactions-from managing, mentoring, and negotiating, to conversing, writing, and presenting. In addition, you will learn how to choose the best principle for any given situation and avoid being manipulated by others.

    You will also cover:

    • The psychological foundation to the laws of persuasion
    • Differentiating the psychology of persuasion from the process of influencing
    • The relationship of triggers to the laws of persuasion/influence
    • The two paths of persuasion: conscious and subconscious
    • Using the Pre-Persuasion Checklist to determine the appropriate law(s) of persuasion for a given business situation
    • Applying the laws of persuasion back on the job

    Conflict is all around us, especially during tough business periods where resources are tight and tempers are shorter, but most people lack basic conflict management skills.

    With this conflict management training, you will learn to recognize the causes of interpersonal conflict, and you will become aware of your emotional triggers to prevent explosive situations. You will learn new strategies of conflict management that will improve your communication performance and, ultimately, increase the success of your business initiatives.
