Course Overview
Hi everyone, my name is William W. Davis, and welcome to my course Scrum Essentials Exam Prep. I'm an avid Agilist and trainer, living and working in sunny south Florida. Agile product development has grown dramatically over the last decade and Scrum is the most popular Agile framework. Alright Scrum is very popular, many Scrum practitioners lack fundamental knowledge about what Scrum is and what it isn't. This course is for anyone who wants to demonstrate their fundamental knowledge of Scrum by earning the professional Scrum master level 1 certification by Scrum. org. In this course, you will validate what you already know about Scrum, plus fill in any gaps and correct any misconceptions you may have about Scrum. Some of the major topics we will cover include the certification differences between the Scrum Alliance and Scrum. org, the five Scrum events, and three Scrum roles, the three Scrum artifacts. You'll examine these and other topics, so by the end of this course you will be better prepared and have greater confidence to take the PSM-1 exam. Before beginning, you should be familiar with the Agile Manifesto and the Scrum Guide, and ideally, you should have several months of Scrum experience too. Please join me on this Scrum journey with the Scrum Essentials Exam Prep course, right here at Pluralsight.

Defining Essential Scrum Team Roles
Hello again, William Davis here, and welcome to this next module in my course Scrum Essentials Exam Prep. In the previous module you looked at the similarities and differences between the two most popular Scrum certifications for Scrum Masters. The certified Scrum Master from the Scrum Alliance and the Professional Scrum Master level 1 certification from Scrum. org. Beginning with this module, until the end of the course, you're going to focus on the material you need to understand before taking the Professional Scrum Master level 1 exam by Scrum. org. The PSM exam isn't a hard exam, but to pass the PSM exam, you need to be well prepared to answer 80 questions about Scrum in just 60 minutes. Even though it's an open-book, open-note, online exam, you'll not have time to Google answers on the internet. You've got to know your stuff. I'm going to help you with that. In this module, you're going to focus on the three Scrum roles, the Product Owner, the people on the Development Team, and the Scrum Master role. You'll also briefly look at the people outside the Scrum Team, those external stakeholders, including the CEO, that can either make your life a blessing or a curse. To pass the PSM level 1 exam, you need a very clear understanding of each Scrum role, what each role is responsible for, and what each role is not responsible for. Let's get started.
