Course Overview
Hi, everyone. My name is Jeremy Jarrell, and welcome to my course Scrum Master Fundamentals - Becoming a Great Scrum Master. I'm an Agile coach who helps teams get better at doing what they love. Whether you're new to the Scrum Master role, or you already have your feet wet and are ready to take this role to the next level, this course will show you how to help your team get the most out of each piece of the scrum framework. In this course we'll discuss the Scrum Master's responsibility to each piece of the scrum framework as well as better understand each piece's true purpose. Some of the major topics that we'll cover include what traits and habits do to the most successful Scrum Masters have in common. How you can facilitate each scrum ceremony in a way that helps your team stay engaged and productive throughout the entire session. How you can better understand the subtle dynamics that are intended between each role in the scrum framework, so you can coach each member of the scrum team to contribute to their highest potential, and how you can avoid common pitfalls that can befall both new and experienced Scrum Masters as you navigate the details of the scrum framework. By the end of this course, you'll know the practices and techniques necessary to perform the Scrum Master role in a way that helps your team deliver their best work. I hope that you'll join me with the Scrum Master Fundamentals - Becoming a Great Scrum Master course at Pluralsight.

Kicking Off the Sprint
My name is Jeremy Jarrell and welcome to Kicking Off the Sprint, part of the Becoming a Great Scrum Master course of the Scrum Master Fundamentals course series. In this module, you'll learn now to properly begin a Sprint in the scrum framework using the Sprint Planning ceremony. You'll learn the format and the specific goals of each portion of this ceremony and you'll learn tips for getting the most out of this ceremony to help your team get started on the right foot. As a reminder, a Sprint is a timeboxed unit of work in which a scrum team works together to deliver a potentially releasable product increment. We discussed Sprints in detail earlier in this series so we won't revisit that discussion here but feel free to return to module two of the Scrum Master Fundamentals Foundations Course, which is the first course in this series, if you'd like to revisit the topic in more depth including better understanding the concept of a product increment, timeboxing, or choosing the right Sprint length for your team. Now that Globomantics has chosen their first scrum master, it's time for their scrum team to start their first sprint.
