Scrum Master training with PSM certification


As ‘The Scrum Guide’ puts it: “Scrum is easy to learn, but difficult to master.” The same goes for the complex role of Scrum Master. This two-day foundational Scrum Master Training, however, will get you to the point where you can crush the Professional Scrum Master (PSM) Certification exam! Passing the PSM Certification exam qualifies you to function as Scrum Master, a key leadership role within the Agile domain.

 

The Scrum framework is based on teamwork, and as an efficient Scrum Master you will solve impediments, and facilitate a team to reach optimal workflow – the support that enables teams to reach higher levels of performance.

Course content includes an update on what is happening with Agile and Scrum right now; and a thorough background on the Agile manifesto, and where Agile comes from.

 

Your expert trainer will address:

  • Scrum roles, rituals and artefacts
  • Coaching the team in self-organizing and multidisciplinary working
  • Supporting the Product Owner
  • Increment planning
  • And many other essential topics.

 

During this course, you will gain insight into the roles and responsibilities in a Scrum team,
and will learn to:

  • Organize and facilitate Scrum meetings
  • Manage such tasks as Agile planning and visual management
  • Think according to Scrum principles, then apply them
  • Lead an optimal implementation of Scrum
