Learn Scrum From Those Who Created and Maintain It

The Scrum Master as envisioned by Ken Schwaber and Scrum.org is a Lean-agile Practitioner. Learn Scrum from those that created and maintain it with the Professional Scrum Master™ (PSM) 2-day course that teaches what you need to know to be a Teacher, Mentor, Coach, & Facilitator for your Scrum Team.

PSM | 2 Days | Advanced | Scrum Masters

Course Overview

Professional Scrum MasterTM (PSM) is a 2-day course that covers the principles and (empirical) process theory underpinning the Scrum framework, and the role of the Scrum Master in it. This course is a combination of instruction and team-based exercises and teaches what is at the heart of the Scrum and Agile movement. The course also includes a free attempt at the globally recognized Professional Scrum Master I certification exam (PSM I).

  • The Scrum Framework – See that each part of Scrum ties back to the principles and theory, while exposing waste; Focus on the accountability of the rolls, the transparency of the artefacts, and the feedback loops of the Events.
  • Done & Undone – It is fundamentally imposible to get transparency without Done
  • Product Delivery with Scrum – Understand how to organize Product Backlog; Practical tips to deal with estimates and value on a Product Backlog; Be confronted with ingrained, old habits like calculating, promising certainty, & predicting the future
  • People & Teams – To understand how Scrum Teams are formed and become effective and the productivity and creativity that can be gained through self-organization.
  • The Scrum Master – Skills and traits of a Scrum Master; The challenges for a Scrum Master in helping teams and the organization in using Scrum to become Agile; The behavioural shift in being a Scrum Master.
  • Clear understanding that the Scrum Master is a Lean-agile Practitioner that is there to guide the Scrum Team and the Organisation to a better degree of agility.
  • Act as Scrum Masters for Scrum Teams and stakeholders from an in-depth understanding of servant-leadership
  • Effectively start using Scrum
  • Increase the effectiveness of Scrum underway

The Professional Scrum Master course is for anyone involved in software development using the Scrum framework. It is particularly beneficial for those people within an organization accountable for getting the most out of Scrum, including Scrum Masters, managers, and Scrum Team members.  We also suggest that you read through the PSM Subject Areas. If you are new to Scrum and are interested in getting started then the Certified Professional Scrum Foundations Training is more relevant. This class is perfect if you are studying for the Professional Scrum Master II assessment.

What You Will Learn

Over the 2 days, students will see why PSM is the cutting-edge course for effective Scrum Masters and for anyone coaching a software development team toward increased efficiency and effectiveness. The course includes advanced thinking for servant-leadership and behavioural shifts. Throughout the course, students are challenged to think in terms of the Scrum principles to better understand what to do when returning to the workplace. The PSM course is much more than just a set of slides and an instructor. In this course, students work on real-life cases with other classmates together as a team. This course is made up of discussions and hands-on exercises based upon real-life cases.

Schedule for this Workshop

If you have more than 5 people to train it can be more cost-effective to have Martin come onsite and deliver a private course just for you. You can request a private course to be delivered onsite at your offices.
