Due to COVID-19, this class will be held virtually.

Professional Scrum Master™ (PSM) is a two-day, easily accessible virtual 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).


What You Will Learn

Over two 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 behavioral 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 virtually on real-life cases with other classmates together as a team. This course is also made up of discussions and exercises based upon real-life cases.
