Do you want your team to be the best it could be?

In a world that is complex and complicated, a resilient organization that can adapt quickly will succeed where others fail. When teams have the skills and agility to overcome challenges, they can work with anything thrown at them.

As one of Canada’s leading Agile and Scrum trainers, Mark Levison is committed to helping you adapt to this world of frequent change and grow better, high-performing teams.


In this two day course you will use Scrum to build a new application, learning how it feels to be part of a Scrum team and how Scrum works. The course is a mix of exercises, lecture and open discussion. Along with the exercises, the course itself is run using a Scrum-like process with a product backlog, estimates, and even acceptance criteria giving students a chance to see how we handle changing requirements in Scrum.

"This course helped me understand the principles of Agile and how to implement it to achieve better performance with any team while having a good time. Really like the balance between the exercises and the theory." ~ P. Lebrun

"There was not a single bit of content that wasn't helpful." ~ B. Paquette

Key Concepts 

After completing this course you will:

  • have an excellent understanding of the Scrum Basics (principles, roles and meetings)

  • know how to go from Release Planning to Project Completion using Scrum

  • know the value of User Stories and Relative Estimation

  • understand how to build a high performance team

  • know how to reduce time to market and increase quality

  • know how to create a culture of learning and continuous improvement

  • fulfill the requirements of the Certified ScrumMaster Program including preparation for the CSM Exam

Finally, this is one of the few CSM courses where the neuroscience and psychology of teams is discussed as applied to managing Scrum and building effective teams.

This course qualifies for 14 PMI PDUs for PMP renewal. Pre-paid exam fee and two years ScrumAlliance membership are included in the course cost. Course attendees receive electronic copies of all seminar materials (including free updates to course materials as they become available). 

"Being engaged in activities with a group gave valuable insight into the problems we might face in our organizations. This course was great! I was never bored and enjoyed working with others. The course instructor was approachable, clear, and great at proving points." ~ D. Boyko

"Great! Fun! And I learned something too! Seriously, one of the best training sessions for my personal growth." ~ P. Versailles
