Professional Scrum Master (PSM 1)
Course Description: This 2-day course covers the principles and (empirical) process theory underpinning the mechanics, rules and roles of the Scrum framework.
The 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.
Advanced tools for servant-leadership are provided to increase a Scrum Master's effectiveness. These tools relate to behavioral shifts, working with people and teams, coaching and facilitation techniques, and addressing the organization. Like all Scrum.org courses, students learn through instruction and team-based exercies and are challenged to think in terms of the Scrum principles to better understand what to do when returning to the workplace.
