Frequently asked questions

  • Is this certified scrum master training?Open or Close

    Scrum Master training has two options. DVT presents the official international Certified Scrum Master training course as well as SCRUM training (this course) which is certified locally. Both are valuable courses however SCRUM training is more cost effective for teams due to it being locally certified.

  • How is a Scrum Master course different to a PMI project management course?Open or Close

    SCRUM is still one of the most popular frameworks used in Agile today. Most Agile courses (including PMI) focus on Agile and Agility, whereas this course is specific to the SCRUM framework used in Agile.

  • Does the SCRUM course cover Kanban principles?Open or Close

    The SCRUM course does not cover KANBAN. DVT does, however, combine SCRUM and KANBAN in a 3-day course that includes both. SCRUM and KANBAN can be combined to form an Agile framework specific to your environment. Agile Coaching is a vital part in customising an Agile framework to work for your unique environment and unique challenges.

  • Should I consider SAFe certification?Open or Close

    The Scaled Agile Framework is a brilliant and detailed framework referred to when Agile is used in larger organisations. SAFe is a good framework to understand since it adds a few additional roles and ceremonies to KANBAN and SCRUM, forming a framework that can scale for large teams and organisations. If you are looking for answers to scaling an Agile implementation or Agile for larger cross-functional teams, SAFe is a good course to consider.

    The SCRUM framework also has many scaling options for instance by introducing SCRUM or SCRUM ceremonies or by looking into due track SCRUM.

  • Does the course cover Lean?Open or Close

    The core idea of Lean is to maximise customer value while minimising waste. All Agile Frameworks (including SCRUM and KANBAN) are based on the Lean principle with regards to value-driven focus and minimising any waste. Lean is more focused on the mindset and thinking which overlaps brilliantly with any Agile framework as both are based on the same principles and values.

  • Is this good project management training?Open or Close

    Project Managers can certainly benefit from Agile training as well as training in the most popular frameworks, SCRUM and KANBAN. Project Managers can specifically benefit from the mindset changes required to excel in Agile.

    Requirements gathering is facilitated in a different manner, and the focus is shifted to the team who are customer value driven. We would recommend the following courses in sequence as a general path to gain Agile knowledge:

    • Agile Fundamentals course – An excellent introduction to Agile and a few Agile frameworks
    • SCRUM training – Still the most commonly used framework in Agile
    • KANBAN training – A very popular Agile framework that can be applied to any area or work stream (including HR, Marketing and Finance)
    • Certified SCRUM Master training – geared towards the Scrum Master role, yet extremely valuable for any member of the Scrum Team.
    • Certified SCRUM Product Owner training – geared towards the business and management role within the organisation yet valuable for the Project and Program Management role within the organisation. We would also recommend the training to innovation driven teams.
