Event Details


After successfully training and certifying over 500 Scrum Masters worldover (UK, USA and rest of Europe), UNICOM is now proud to be in India.

In UNICOM's two-day Certified Scrummaster course, you will apply the Scrum framework to build a new product. You will learn what it feels like to be on a Scrum team—experiencing many of the challenges you're likely to face—while being coached by someone involved with the application of Scrum at many organizations. This “learning by doing” style of instruction demands your open mind and active participation.

We will apply the experiential activities to discussion of advanced topics such as how to use Scrum in multiple-team organizations, how to measure progress empirically at a macro level, release planning to maximize ROI, and why such a simple framework disrupts organizations to be the best they can be.

Upon successful completion of the course, attendees will receive official designation as Certified Scrum Masters by the Scrum Alliance along with a  two year membership to the Scrum Alliance.


There is no prerequisite to attend the training, except for a 60-minute reading assignment which must be completed in advance of the course (full details are sent about 2 weeks prior to the course date).

Who should take this training course?

This course is useful for anyone who wants to be successful using Scrum. It's not just for ScrumMasters – but will benefit anyone who is involved in a Scrum Project and in any of the Scrum roles.  It’s strongly recommended for Product Owners, Product Managers, Project Managers, Functional / Departmental Managers, Development Team Members (including Architects, Designers, Coders, Testers, and others), and Executives involved in transitioning to Scrum within their own organization


These courses are conducted by Scrum Alliance-authorized Certified Scrum Trainers.
