If you want access to PDF files of the deck we used, 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.

http://www.infoq.com/minibooks/scrum-xp-from-the-trenches

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

 

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

 

You are certainly welcome to read here (this wiki), at my blog Agile & Business (see http://www.leanagiletraining.com/blog/), 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 Agile2014 Conference (http://agile2014.agilealliance.org/) is... next August.

The next ScrumGathering is in New Orleans.

 

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.

 

You may download my short book, Joe's Agile Release Planning, by clicking there.  And using coupon code Charlotte.  To get it for free.

Please give me some feedback.

 

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

You should be aware of Agile Carolinas.

http://agile-carolinas.pbworks.com/w/page/61205612/Engaging%20with%20Agile-Carolinas

Or, contact Cassandra Wagner and 'join' the group; it is free.

There are speakers or discussion groups at the monthly meetings.

 

You may also be interested in other Agile User Groups. Try:

http://groups.yahoo.com/neo/search?query=Agile

http://scrumcommunity.pbworks.com/Local+Groups

 

If you are interested in PMI PDUs, that will depend on how much you were in class.  Just tell Cassandra that you are interested (via email), and she will explain further.

We are not an REP, but obtaining the PDUs is still very easy.

 

Here are some other useful documents:

CSM PDU Claim Process-3.pdf

 

Scrum-checklist-prio1.pdf

 

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.

Suggestions: 

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 knew. 

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.
