Event description


Learn Scrum by building a revenue generating product in 15 weeks!

Join us for this novel course which leads to the Scrum Alliance Certified Scrum Master (CSM) certification. You will join a group of no more than eight like-minded people who will work together over the course of 15 weeks to create a revenue-generating product. As the Agile Manifesto says you will learn better ways of developing software by “doing it.”

We will begin by forming a team with a high degree of psychological safety, trust, shared understanding, and alignment. We will then proceed to brainstorm and validate revenue generating ideas. You will then build and launch a product (think Shopify store) and iterate on the product/market fit and the marketing/customer fit. You will encounter challenges and frustrations and learn how to work through them.

The course will be chaperoned by two experienced Scrum Alliance certified coaches who have collectively coached over 200 hundred teams and led agile transformations of several thousand people.


  • You will learn and live the Scrum five values.
  • You will practice the five Scrum events.
  • You will create the three Scrum artifacts.
  • You will experience the three Scrum roles.
  • You will learn and practice several common approaches to discovering and validating products.


  • Increased self-awareness
  • You will feel confident about your ability to work as a member of a Scrum team.
  • You will receive the CSM after you pass the Scrum Alliance certification exam.


  • Week 1: Getting to know each other
  • Week 2: Building a high trust, high safety team
  • Week 3: Introduction to key Scrum concepts
  • Week 4-5: Determining value
  • Week 6-7: Selecting a product
  • Week 8-10: Developing the product
  • Week 11-12: Launching the product
  • Week 13-15: Product refinement and pivots


No prerequisites except for a positive attitude, enthusiasm, and a willingness to do the work between the sessions.
