Professional Scrum Master I
Professional Scrum Master (PSM) is a two-day course that covers the principles and (empirical) process theory underpinning the Scrum framework and the role of the Scrum Master in it. The course is a combination of instruction and team-based exercises, and teaches what is at the heart of the Scrum and Agile movement.
PSM is the cutting-edge course for effective Scrum Masters and for anyone coaching a 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 on real-life cases with other classmates together as a team. This course is made up of discussions and hands-on exercises based upon real life cases.
