Learn Professional Scrum And How To Use Scrum To Raise Team Effectiveness
Our Professional Scrum Master™ (PSM) is an interactive, activity-based two day course where you gain a strong understanding of a professional use of the Scrum framework and the role of the Scrum Master. Through a combination of discussion and exercises, you develop a deep understanding of the underlying principles of Scrum and the Agile mindset while learning the practices applied by successful Scrum Teams.
Throughout the class, you learn a number of Scrum (MasterY) practices to use once you leave the classroom while also receiving an introduction to growing team effectiveness. After the class, you get the opportunity to connect with peers and thought leaders to empirically and incrementally further develop your skills in raising team effectiveness through Scrum.
- Module 1: Scrum First Principles
- Module 2: The Scrum Framework
- Module 3: Done
- Module 4: Product Delivery With Scrum
- Module 5: People & Teams
- Module 6: The Scrum Master
The course also includes a free attempt at the globally recognized Professional Scrum Master I (PSM I) certification exam.
What you will learn
In this two day class* you will be challenged to explore the Agile and Scrum principles so you can better understand what to do when applying Scrum to support your teams and organizations.
The course uses a combination of instructor-led and activity-based learning where you will work together with other participants in teams. As a Professional Scrum Trainer (PST), I bring their own Scrum Master experiences and stories to the class and use my skills as professional trainer to deliver the material using my own unique delivery style. The result is an engaging, enjoyable learning experience where you gain a deep understanding of Scrum theory and principles, the Scrum Master accountabilities and why each element of the Scrum framework is important.
You leave this course with an appreciation for Professional Scrum, the agile mindset and how to deal with common myths and impediments to agility. You gain the knowledge and understanding about how to choose and apply the appropriate practices and techniques that will be most beneficial for your Scrum Teams.
Over the two days, you will see why Professional Scrum MasterY is the cutting-edge course for effective Scrum Masters and their team members, and for anyone coaching a team toward increased efficiency and effectiveness.

Who should attend
The Professional Scrum MasterY course is appropriate for any industry where teams are working to solve complex problems. 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.
As collaboration is a key factor in the success of any initiative, it is equally important that Product Owners and other team members understand the role Scrum Masters play in making the entire Scrum Team more efficient and effective in delivering value for the organisation and its customers.
You will work in teams. You learn through team assignments, discussions and hands-on exercises.
Be ready to challenge and be challenged.
