What to expect


“Thank you again for a great class last week! I came back excited to share what I'd learned with the rest of the company - I'd argue that's not something that can't be said for most classes. Loved the small class size and open communication. Would definitely recommend to others at my organization.”

“A good balance between theory and examples vague enough to elicit great discussion and interactions, but relevant enough to get concrete knowledge to take home.”

“Busting some of the myths of what is and isn’t scrum was helpful. Lots of good guidance on how to maximize our use of scrum. Good clarification on the purpose of many of the scrum concepts.”


The Professional Scrum Master course is for anyone involved in software development using the Scrum Framework. It is particularly beneficial for those people within an organization accountable for getting the most out of Scrum, including:

  • Scrum Masters

  • Managers

  • Scrum Team Members


Attendees make the most of the class if they:

  • Have studied the Scrum Guide (required).

  • Have been closely involved or have a high interest with a project that builds or enhances a software product or application.


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.

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.

Students learn through instruction and team-based exercises, and are challenged to think in terms of the Scrum principles to better understand what to do when returning to the workplace.


Students are challenged to think within the Scrum Framework and the underlying values and principles to better understand what to do when returning to the workplace and facing complex decisions.

Theoretical and experiential training to provide:

  • The “WHY” and rules of Scrum through the empirical foundation of Scrum

  • The ability to effectively start up Scrum or increase its effectiveness if already underway.

  • The ability to navigate the “grey areas” of a Scrum implementation
