Advanced Scrum Master

Professional Scrum Master II™ (PSM II) course is a 2-day advanced class designed to support Scrum Masters in their professional development. The course is intended for Scrum Masters with at least one year of experience who are looking to grow their knowledge and abilities as a Scrum Master. This course is one step in that journey.

The Home of Scrum

Over the two days you will learn about areas critical to growing as a successful Scrum Master. For instance, you will learn how the principles and values of Scrum help guide Scrum Masters in the decisions they make and how the Scrum Master can help change the environment of Scrum Teams, creating an environment for agility to thrive. The Scrum Master role is complex and often, a Scrum Master must be able to apply different stances in order to be effective, such as:

  • Teacher
  • Coach & Mentor
  • Facilitator
  • Change Agent

As a Scrum Master, being able to identify, and effectively apply which stance would benefit your team the most depending on the situation or circumstance is an essential skill of an effective Scrum Master.

OBJECTIVES

By the end of the course, attendees will:

  • Understand what practices, tools, skills and stances make an effective Scrum Master
  • Understand how the Scrum principles and values help guide Scrum Masters in decisions they make
  • Know how the Scrum Master acts as a servant leader and improve their ability in this area
  • Improve their knowledge on what Scrum Masters can do to support Development Teams and Product Owners to become more effective
  • Learn ways that the Scrum Master can change the environment making it more conducive for Scrum Teams to be successful with greater agility
  • Have knowledge on tools and techniques for the Scrum Master to work with the rest of the organisation in support of their Scrum Teams

AUDIENCE AND PREREQUSITES

Unlike the Professional Scrum Master (PSM) course which focuses on how to use Scrum, the Scrum framework and the role of the Scrum Master, PSM II is an advanced course helping students to understand the stances that characterize an effective Scrum Master and servant-leader while diving deep into how they serve the Development Team, Product Owner and organisation. The course then teaches students about related practices and skills to enable them to have the right types of conversations and how to apply them to become better Scrum Masters.

For those who do not already have the Professional Scrum Master I we also offer this course; more information can be found here.
