Our Professional Scrum Master (PSM) training experience uses a unique blend of self-paced learning, live classroom hands-on activity-based exercises, and community-based aftercare where students explore Professional Scrum and develop an understanding of the critical role that the Scrum Master plays on the Scrum Team. Throughout the class and between sessions, students learn a number of practices that they can use once they leave the classroom while also receiving an introduction to Scrum Mastery. After the class, they get to connect with peers and thought leaders to empirically and incrementally develop their skills in Agile Product Management.

  • Session 1: Theory and First Principals
  • Session 2: The Scrum Framework & Done
  • Session 3: Product Delivery with Scrum
  • Session 4: People, Teams, and the Scrum Master

Each session includes WARMUP activities to be completed before the session and WRAPUP activities to be completed after each session. Before, during, and after the class students can interact with other students and thought leaders in our Lean-Agile Community.

You can see our example courseware for all our programs on our community network.

The Professional Scrum Master (PSM) Flipped Learning Experience with Certification is delivered as a flipped learning experience divided into learning blocks, each with presentations and lectures in the form of videos, reading material, and writing activities that are provided for self-study complemented by 1/2 day live virtual sessions delivered online using Microsoft Teams and Mural.

Learning Experience

Flipped Learning Experience

Flipped Learning Experience

Flipped learning is an alternative format that moves some or all of the learning of theory away from the classroom, and reflecting and practising is done in the class (hence the name "Flipped Learning").

Benefits of flipped learning

  • Consuming content in smaller iterations helps learning stick
  • Multiple reflection cycles make the practical application of learning more impactful
  • Variations of learning environment cater better for personal learning styles
  • Continued access to learning materials

Flipped Learning Experience Overview

This class comes with 16 hours of live virtual classroom experience. The course content is divided into learning blocks, each with presentations and lectures in the form of videos, reading material, and writing activities that are provided for self-study complemented by 1/2 day live virtual sessions delivered online using Microsoft Teams and Mural. These live interactive workshops create a dynamic and interactive environment where we dive into the core concepts of Professional Scrum and the Scrum Masters accountability through group activities, interactions, and sharing experiences, all with the guidance of an expert Professional Scrum Trainer.

Obtaining new knowledge through self-study materials along with having an in-depth, rich engagement in a class allows students to enjoy learning that sticks. Students will complete the course ready to take the globally recognised Professional Scrum Master I (PSMI) certification exam which is included in the course fee.

Student will leave this course with an application for Professional Scrum.

Prerequisites

  • Computer - Your computer will need to be fast enough to run both Microsoft Teams and Mural. We recommend 2 monitors so that you can see everyone and the work easily.
  • Webcam - Please consider your staging and presence; what others see when you are on video. Try to avoid backlighting that renders you in shadow, the up-nostril, the baldie, or the half-head. 80% of human communication comes from body language and other visual queues. Consider your camera angles and try to have a view that is as close to what you would expect in person across a table.
  • Internet - We recommend a strong internet to support high fidelity video both from you and with us.

Supporting people with disabilities

We do our best to support people with disabilities. Please ask us about what we can do. Closed Captioning - For persons who are deaf or hard-of-hearing, live captions allow to see what others are saying. Class Recording - A meeting recording can be helpful for people with cognitive difficulties, for example. You can go through the recording at your own pace as well as go back to double-check anything you might have missed.

This course is made up of discussions and hands-on exercises based upon real-life cases.
