Guide your Team to Success

This course is built around a Scrum Lego® City simulation that provides vivid and memorable experiences that tightly mirror those new teams experience when adopting Scrum in real life. It offers an intensive, highly interactive introduction to the principles and practices of Agile and the Scrum framework.

This two-day course is taught by the only Certified Enterprise Coach (CEC) and Certified Scrum Trainer (CST) and CAL educator in Canada. Participants receive the Certified ScrumMaster credential from the Scrum Alliance upon completion of the course and passing an online exam, as required by the Scrum Alliance.

This course is designed for ScrumMasters, project managers, product owners, and managers, and development teams (e.g., development, QA, DBAs, UI/UX) new to Agile and Scrum. Ideally, the cross-functional team attends together with their managers.

The UBC Certified ScrumMaster course is delivered in partnership with IncrementOne.


IncrementOne is a professional services firm that enables organizations to unlock and achieve rapid and sustainable performance improvement based on the application of a lean and agile mindset. We believe that your delivery capability is only as good as the results it delivers. Results are how you learn and steer your product delivery teams to exceed customer expectations. In a dynamic, complex and unpredictable environment the ability to respond quickly to emerging customer needs defines business agility. Companies that get this right stand out in the marketplace. IncrementOne brings together a proven team of agile consultants with a unique approach to change management and problem solving based on seeing results from the outset.

This course enabled me to understand why this proven Methodology is useful and the responsibilities that each role plays.

Associate Certificate in Agile Leadership

After using Agile for over 20 years, I was glad to learn in 2019 about the UBC Sauder School, Agile Leadership Certificate offering. This course enabled me to understand why this proven Methodology is useful and the responsibilities that each role plays.

The instructors were enthusiastic, and provided a huge number of real-world examples to supplement course materials. I gained a greater understanding of the challenges adapting the Agile methodology, and how team work can overcome those challenges. I experienced many “a-ha” moments and was immediately able to apply the material to benefit my organization. The online platforms used worked well and felt similar to in-class courses taken in the past. I highly recommend this program.
