Welcome to this course, or welcome again to this course, where we are going to be presenting the Scrum Master Certification practice or hands-on practice, which will solidify everything that we have learned so far on our journey to being certified as a Scrum Master. The first course we looked at was Scrum Master training. Then we did a deep dive on the Scrum Master methodologies. Then we did scaling of Scrum with a team-of-teams approach. We combined Scrum with other Agile methodologies to create our own unique Agile solution. Here we are now at the hands-on sections, so the Certified Scrum Master practice. Then after this course, there also is a Scrum Master exam preparation. I encourage you, if you haven't yet, to complete all of the previous first four classes, complete this course, and then go on and complete the Scrum Master exam preparation. Everything that we've been doing here is 100 percent relevant for all of the Scrum Master Certification bodies. You probably know by now there are several certification bodies, whether it's a vendor, whether it's a host, it really doesn't matter. They all use and presents and test on the topics that we have covered in this course series. Again, please take a look at the material or review the material or complete the material that we've presented in this course series. This is just one exam. This is a good representation of what is on all the exams from all of the Scrum Master certification bodies. They will touch on and require knowledge of the Agile Manifesto, the definition of Scrum, and how Scrum relates to Agile. We know Scrum is an Agile methodology. They will also discuss the three pillars of Scrum. Talk about how Scrum is incremental and iterative and also the Scrum values. We know the Agile Manifesto has values, but Scrum also has its own values of commitment, courage, focus, openness, and respect. All the certification bodies will discuss Scrum teams and how they're cross-functional and self-organizing, the accountabilities of the Scrum team, and identify the Scrum team and their relationship to the Scrum Master, the product owner, the development teams, and the testers. Every certification body will look for the responsibilities and characteristics of the Scrum Master and how the Scrum Master interacts with the greater organization, the development team, and the product owner. Every exam, as you can imagine, will focus on the characteristics of a sprint. The sprint planning meeting event, the daily Scrum or the daily stand-up event, the sprint review event, and the sprint retrospective event, also the scrum artifacts. Every certification board will look for knowledge, demonstrate knowledge on the Scrum artifacts such as the Product Backlog, the sprint backlog, sometimes called the sprint plan, the product increment. That is that working increment of software, software hardware or a solution at the end of the sprint. Again, according to the Agile Manifesto, it should be a working increment. An understanding of transparency and the artifacts, when we evaluate the increment, and how we manage risk with that. Maybe the downsides of a lack of transparency, definitely the Definition of Done and the characteristics of Backlog items. We are going to incorporate all of these into the upcoming exercises here for the hands-on. If you need a little more work on these topics, please look back to the previous courses. They'll also be some topics discussed, and some additional detail discussed in the exam preparation. You are encouraged to whatever body you are working with for your certification to take a look at their exam topics, their exam outline and get an idea of what percentages, what weight each of the topics have on their exam. Thank you for taking this course. We look forward to presenting to you.
