Professional Scrum Master™ is a 16 hours class where students are challenged to explore the Agile and Scrum principles to understand better what to do when applying Scrum to support their teams and organisations. The course uses a combination of instructor-led and activity-based learning, where students work together in teams. In addition, trainers bring their own Scrum Master experiences and stories to the class and use their skills to deliver the material using their unique delivery style. The result is an engaging, enjoyable learning experience where students gain a deep understanding of Scrum theory and principles, the Scrum Master accountabilities and why each element of the Scrum framework is important.
Students leave this course with an appreciation for professional Scrum, the Agile mindset and how to deal with common myths and impediments to agility. In addition, they gain the knowledge and understanding about how to choose and apply the appropriate practices and techniques that will be most beneficial for their Scrum Teams.
There are no set prerequisites to attend the course. However, knowledge of Scrum in a real-world context or experience working in Scrum are helpful.
