Yes, Scrum Master has 2 options in terms of training. DVT presents the official international Certified Scrum Master training course (this one) as well as SCRUM training which locally certified. Both are very valuable courses with the SCRUM training being more cost effective for teams.
DVT try to be as cost effective as possible when it comes to international certified training. The training course itself is led by an international trainer who we believe has more experience in advanced/mature agile teams/organizations as appose to local coaches and trainers. These international trainers brings you expert training, advice and case studies from abroad.
SCRUM is still one of the most popular frameworks used in Agile today. Whereas most Agile courses (including PMI) focus on Agile and Agility, this course is specific to the SCRUM framework used in Agile.
The SCRUM course does not cover KANBAN. DVT does however combine SCRUM and KANBAN in a 3 day course that covers both. SCRUM and KANBAN can be combined in forming an Agile framework specific to your environment yet utilizing the best elements of two brilliant frameworks. Agile Coaching is a vital part in customizing an Agile framework to work for your unique environment and unique challenges.
The Scaled Agile Framework is a brilliant and detailed framework referred to when Agile is used in larger organizations. SAFe is a good framework to understand since it adds a few additional roles and ceremonies to KANBAN and SCRUM forming a framework that can scale for large teams and organizations. Should you be looking for answers to scaling an Agile implementation or Agile for larger cross functional teams, SAFe is a good course to consider.
The SCRUM framework also has many scaling options for instance by introducing SCRUM of SCRUM ceremonies or looking into due track SCRUM.
The core idea of Lean is to maximize customer value while minimizing waste. All Agile Frameworks (including SCRUM and KANBAN) are based on the Lean principle with regards to value driven focus and minimizing any waste.
