Event Details

Start Realizing the Benefits of Agile

 

The Madison Henry Group delivers Scrum.org’s Professional Scrum Master (PSM) Course, which teaches Scrum principles and provides information and tools to help ensure Scrum is well understood and practiced. Through a combination of instruction, case studies and exercises, you will learn and be challenged to better understand and apply in your workplace.

.

The PSM Course was initially designed by Ken Schwaber, co-creator of Scrum, in 2009 as a significant update to the Certified ScrumMaster (CSM) Course that he developed with the Scrum Alliance back in 2002. Since 2009, the PSM Course has been maintained and regularly enhanced by Scrum.org, where it has evolved into the industry’s highest quality and most consistently delivered Scrum Master training.

 

 

                        

 

Assessment & Certification

Professional Scrum Master I (PSM I)

PSM I Assessments measure fundamental knowledge and application of the Scrum Framework, along with an understanding and interpretation of the Scrum Guide. Upon completion of a Professional Scrum Master Course, you will receive credentials for taking an assessment up to two times within a 14-day period. After achieving a minimum score, you will earn the industry-recognized PSM I Certification and be recognized on Scrum.org. Achieving PSM I is the minimum demonstration of knowledge any Professional Scrum Master should be able to make.

 

Professional Scrum Master II (PSM II)

Once you’ve earned PSM I Certification, the PSM II Assessment is available to demonstrate a high-level of understanding of the Scrum framework, its practices  and values and its application in the real world. The PSM II Assessment is incredibly challenging and incorporates a combination of multiple-choice questions, case study questions and essays. Achieving the PSM II Certification is a significant accomplishment and you will be recognized within an exclusive group on Scrum.org.
