Target groups

Target group

The course is aimed at future Scrum Masters and others who need good knowledge of how the different parts of Scrum work, e.g. project managers, clients, managers, team leaders and developers.


Over the years, we have noticed that those who get the most out of the course are those who have acquired the basic knowledge of Scrum even before the course. We therefore recommend that you have read a book about Scrum before the course, or (if you have less time left over) at least read The Scrum Guide.
