Simply the best I've attended yet
Marco's 2 days course is simply the best I've attended yet, for few reasons: Marco is engaging from the first minute to the last, you won't fall asleep and you won't need coffee. He's an expert, you will learn and feel confident to apply the skills by the end of his course. His course is delivered in the most effective possible way, I won't ruin the surprise: you'll have to attend. Let's just say he walks the talk and 'applied' Scrum on improving his own course!

One of the most valuable courses I have ever attended
Just coming back fully charged from Marco’s CSM course and ready to bring more agility to our team. Marco’s approach combined with his broad experience and background made this training one of the most valuable courses I have ever attended. I especially loved the way he applied the Scrum framework to the course schedule - which was a great example itself for what it really means to be “agile”. Thanks again for all the good insights and this great learning experience!

Lively and incredibly interesting
Marco just hosted Certified ScrumMaster® training, and literally within 24 hours I was able to pass the Scrum Alliance's exam. He did an awesome job handling lots of diverse questions, challenges from the group and he kept the entire experience lively and incredibly interesting. Great job, Marco!

Jeff Sutherland: "I strongly recommend Marco Mulder as a Scrum Trainer"
For the past several years I have worked with Marco Mulder leading Certified ScrumMaster courses in the Netherlands. Marco has an excellent understanding of Scrum and has deep knowledge of XP engineering practices. Marco has also been a ScrumMaster, as well as team member, on hyper productive distributed teams. In addition to his work with Scrum training and consulting, Marco has taken on leadership in the Agile Netherlands community and helped expand its membership and its focus on Scrum.

The training itself is a Scrum project!

The content of our two-day CSM training is partly determined by the specific challenges of the participants in their own organization. We use Scrum to train Scrum. Participants go through two sprints of a Scrum project including prioritization, estimating stories, sprint planning and burn-down. Participants group their learning objectives in groups that form the basis for the planning of the sprints. In this way we optimally match the training needs of the participants. In addition, we demonstrate Scrum in action. Of course there is plenty of room for discussion and for dealing with specific questions, such as:

  • Approach work with an Agile mindset
  • Scrum roles and responsibilities
  • Facilitating Scrum events: backlog refinement, sprint planning, daily scrum (stand-up), sprint review (demo), retrospective
  • Creating and maintaining a product backlog
  • Effectively estimate work in story points using planning poker
  • Get a grip on short term and long term planning
  • Get a grip on the quality of deliverables
  • Dealing with real world challenges as a Scrum Master
  • How to continuously initiate and encourage improvements
  • How to get people in an organization on board to work in a more Agile ways
