How to succeed with Scrum?

Scrum is a framework to deliver products and projects at minimal cost while maximizing delivered business value. Although many organizations are experimenting with Scrum, only few succeed in successfully implementing it and obtaining the real benefits. Leading a Scrum team is radically different to traditional project management. Rather than plan, instruct, and direct, the leader of a Scrum team (called a ScrumMaster) facilitates, coaches, and leads. In this 2-day ScrumMaster Certification course, we will cover the fundamental principles of Scrum, qualifying you as a Certified ScrumMaster. We will explore typical pitfalls and proven implementation approaches. We will add practice to theory through a variety of exercises and take-aways to use with co-workers …

How to become a Certified ScrumMaster?

Upon successful completion of the course, each participant is enrolled as a Certified ScrumMaster, which includes a two-year Scrum Alliance membership, where additional ScrumMaster-only material and information is available. More importantly, this course prepares you for a solid and successful implementation of Scrum in your team or organization. You will learn the Scrum framework and understand how all elements fit together into one of the most powerful project management tools around.

The training is given by one of the best certified Belgian Scrum coaches. He is a real expert in the Scrum domain and he takes you on a very engaging and fascinating Scrum journey.

All Scrum courses will run live online this spring. What makes our virtual trainings so powerful?

High quality experience

We are confident we can deliver a high quality experience similar to the one you would get in a face-to-face training. Our trainers have gained extensive experience in providing online training and workshops and they are supported by the Scrum Alliance (the accrediting organisation).

Small groups with large interactivity & fun

The training is highly interactive and we even use games (building houses, paper snowflakes …) to make it fun and interactive. Also we regularly have breaks in between the workshops so that you can stay focused during the training.

ZOOM for remote learning

This platform is perfectly suited for remote training and offers a lot of possibilities for interaction such as using a whiteboard and working in sub-groups. A few days before the start of the training, we provide you with the instructions so that you can prepare carefully for your online training. At the start of the training we run with you through the setup so that you are confident that everything runs smoothly during the training

Why is this virtual classroom so worthwhile according to our participants?

We have already received a lot of positive reactions from participants who followed an online Scrum training with us in the past few weeks. Here we listed a couple of testimonials:


"Just try and you will see how great it is. We ( team of 9 persons ) did this, you may like it too."


"Don't be hesitant (as I was). It went much better than I could ever expect and it was very interactive."


"The experience is different but the overall feelings and learnings of an online training are the same as an offline training."

I'm very pleased to have followed the CSM training and eager to use the method in my day to day work. For sure, one of the more useful trainings I've been to over the years. The training was prefectly built, with useful practicle exemples and interaction between trainer and students. Very clear, visible, ...

Pieter Persoons, Incept

Good practical training that goes well beyond the theoretical knowledge and shows the reasons why Scrum is effective instead of just explaining the theory.

Steven Switten, IT, Atos Worldline

Very practical and still to the point. All definitions were not given in a classical way but the students were forced to think about the theory before the theory was given. This enabled the students to better memorize when the theory was actually given. This course was to me the best course I ever had. It was never boring. We 'played' a lot and still we were able to see all theory this in a very practical way. I left the course with the feeling that I really understood scrum now and I got a lot of points that I will try to practice. The trainer Jef Cumps is even better than excellent !

Ingrid Van Hevel, Consultant, Green10

I would recommend it because it is very dynamic and easy to follow. You have fun while you learn which is the whole objective.
