If you want access to PDF files of the deck we used, please contact Cassandra at Cassandra.Wagner@LeanAgileTraining.com .  (Note for public readers: You must also be a CSM/CSPO we trained.)


Read or finish reading the following:

Agile Project Management with Scrum by Ken Schwaber.


The Scrum Guide  http://agileconsortium.pbworks.com/w/page/23740731/Scrum%20Guide


Again, the Scrum Guide is a key source for preparing for the CSM Test.


You are certainly welcome to read here (this wiki), and at my blog Agile & Business (see http://www.leanagiletraining.com/blog/).  Please also contribute, if only with questions.


For the next week, you are welcome to a free copy of my book, Agile Release Planning.

I will send you a link to get it for free.


I also particularly recommend:

ScrumDevelopment (http://groups.yahoo.com/group/scrumdevelopment)

LeanDevelopment (http://tech.groups.yahoo.com/group/leandevelopment)

The Agile Alliance https://www.agilealliance.org/agile2017/ for scheduled events.

The next ScrumGathering https://www.scrumalliance.org/sgmps in the US is Minneapolis April 2018.


See Agile Info, here: http://www.leanagiletraining.com/resources.html

There is a whole LOT of info on and "beneath" this page.  It includes: books, articles, blogs, yahoo groups, "user groups", etc, etc.


Local Groups: You should join a "local" group.  Or start a local group or an "industry" group.

You should be aware of this Halifax Agile User Group

See: https://www.linkedin.com/groups?home=&gid=8112520&trk=anet_ug_hm&goback=.gmr_8112520

There is also a Meetup group, through which they hold meetings (invites and replies).



Scrum Canada is also on LinkedIn, but is a bit more Montreal based...still interested in all of Canada:



If you want to find groups in other cities, see:


http://www.meetup.com/cities/ And select a city and search on agile or scrum
https://www.linkedin.com/grp/  And search.

You may of course search the web too.  For example, some user groups may have some sort of web presence, and not be listed in Meetup, Linked-In or any of the other places above.



Here are some other useful documents:


Prioritizing projects.pdf


CSM PDU Claim Process-3.pdf




Scaling Whitepaper


Joe's Unofficial Scrum Checklist


Favorite Scrum Mistakes


A list summarizing Scrum   This list is useful as a review. And maybe useful as a starting point for defining Scrum or Agile for your group.




Agile 2010 Scrum excel spreadsheet:




We place the highest value on taking action and getting real results.

Put what you think you know into action.  Now.

Find out what you don't know as well as what you thought you did. 

Find out what you need to know the most. Now.

Learn more (for a bit). Act more.

Learn-Act.  Get into a tight cycle.  Like a PDCA cycle.


We want you to pursue this with perseverance and aggressiveness, and at the same time patience.
