If you want access to PDF files of the deck we used, contact Julia at Julia.Hill@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  Scrum Guide


Again, the Scrum Guide is the main source for questions on the CSM Evaluation.  Here is a page that talks about the CSM Evaluation.  I believe it to be accurate. http://scrumcommunity.pbworks.com/CSMEvaluation  I recommend that you not worry very much about the CSM Evaluation.  


You are certainly welcome to read here (this wiki), at my blog Agile & Business (see http://agileconsortium.blogspot.com/), and at a special Yahoo group called AgileBusiness (http://finance.groups.yahoo.com/group/AgileBusiness).  Please also contribute, even if only with questions.


We also particularly recommend:

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

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

The Agile20xx Conference (http://agile2010.agilealliance.org/)

The next ScrumGathering (next one in North America, probably in the US, will be around March 2011).


See Agile Info, here: http://leanagiletraining.com/AgileInfo/Agile%20Info.htm

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:

Agile Ottawa - http://agileottawa.wordpress.com/

This group also has a Yahoo presence and a LinkedIn presence.  And perhaps other ways of communicating.

There are also other agile groups in Ottawa.


This group also has a yahoo group, meetup and LinkedIn presence.


If you want to look at other groups, see:



Here are some other useful documents:

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 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.


Whether you believe it now or not, you can change the world. Or at least your organization.

The group of you together, if allied with the Truth, have great power.

"Go confidently in the direction of your dreams" is what Henry David Thoreau said.


Bon courage!
