Who Should Attend?

This PSM Certification is particularly beneficial for those people within an organization accountable for getting the most out of Scrum, including Scrum Masters, Agile Coaches, Change Agents, Leaders and Managers.

Course Topics

Scrum is an agile framework that exposes inefficiencies in existing workflows. By promoting transparency, Scrum allows teams to continuously inspect and adapt their processes for improvement. This course dives into the role of the Scrum Master, who fosters a thriving Scrum Team environment, facilitates communication across the organization to avoid hindering the team, and guides the organization towards successful Scrum adoption for better business outcomes.

Traditional management styles can stifle creativity in complex product development environments. This course dives into the Scrum Master's role as a servant leader, empowering teams to solve problems through an agile and iterative approach.

Building a cohesive team takes time. Tuckman's model describes this journey, but with diverse individuals, conflict is inevitable. This course explores different conflict levels, the Scrum Master's role in resolving them, and how to navigate these challenges to achieve business goals.

The Scrum Master plays a vital role in ensuring the Scrum Team's success. According to the Scrum Guide, the Scrum Master is responsible for removing impediments that hinder the team's progress. This course will delve into the different types of impediments a Scrum Team might encounter, explore which ones the Scrum Master should address and which ones the team can handle themselves, and provide tips on how to avoid becoming a roadblock for the team.

Scrum Masters leverage facilitation skills to assist teams in overcoming various roadblocks, be they technical challenges, business problems, or even conflicts. This guide explores various facilitation techniques to empower Scrum Masters to effectively guide their teams.

Scrum is all about consistently delivering a "Done" increment at the end of each sprint. This means all work within the sprint is completed and ready for use. It explores what constitutes a "Done" increment, how teams can define their own standards for "Done", and the role of the Scrum Master in facilitating this process.

Many Scrum teams struggle with a lack of understanding around the purpose behind their tasks. This course equips you with the knowledge to bridge that gap. You'll gain a solid understanding of Sprint Goals, how they tie to team commitment, and the Scrum Master's role in crafting meaningful goals that keep everyone aligned.

Scrum events are designed for continuous improvement, but they can fall into routine check-ins. We will help you re-focus on the true power of these events: inspection and adaptation. Learn techniques to make your Scrum ceremonies meaningful and drive real change.

While the Scrum Guide doesn't define specific management roles, successful Scrum implementations still require effective management within the organization. This course explores how these seemingly disparate concepts coexist. We'll delve into the distribution of management tasks within Scrum, the concept of self-managing teams, and how the Scrum Master fosters an environment that enables this self-management.

Scrum acts as a magnifying glass, revealing inefficiencies within your existing system. This course dives deep into achieving successful product delivery despite these challenges. We'll explore what constitutes a successful product, how Scrum Masters empower Product Owners, and strategies to navigate the inherent complexities of product development. You'll also learn how to leverage an empirical approach to guarantee successful product delivery.

Scrum teams thrive on continuous improvement, but how do you know what to improve? This course equips Scrum Masters with the knowledge to measure what truly matters. We'll explore the difference between outputs (what gets done) and outcomes (the impact of that work) to help you focus on metrics that drive value and team growth.

The Scrum Master plays a crucial role in supporting the Product Owner, who may face limitations in time availability or experience with the iterative nature of Scrum. This course dives into three key areas where the Scrum Master empowers the Product Owner. Firstly, you'll learn how to guide the Product Owner towards embracing "empirical product development," an approach that emphasizes learning through short sprints and adapting based on real-world feedback. Secondly, we'll explore techniques for effective Product Backlog management, ensuring it's prioritized and reflects the evolving needs of the product. Finally, the course equips you with strategies to help the Product Owner deliver maximum business value through strategic backlog refinement and a focus on high-impact features.

Traditional management styles can clash with Scrum's collaborative approach. This course tackles that head-on! Learn how to navigate management's role in Scrum adoption. We'll address their concerns, explore shared accountabilities within the Scrum Team, and empower everyone for a smooth Agile transition.

We dive deep into the role of the Scrum Master as a key driver of positive change within an organization. We'll explore how Scrum Masters can cultivate habits and behaviors that empower teams to thrive in complex environments. You'll gain the skills to promote a culture that embraces Scrum principles, identify and remove obstacles hindering change, and understand the different levels at which a Scrum Master can operate as a powerful change agent.
