Description

Scrum.org Accredited Professional Scrum Trainers, Barry Overeem, Christiaan Verwijs, and Ryan Ripley will co-train this highly anticipated Advanced Scrum Master II Class at Scrum.org headquarters in Burlington, MA - The Home of Scrum.

Professional Scrum Master II™ (PSM II) course is a 2-day advanced Scrum Master class designed to support Scrum Masters in their professional development. The PSM II class is intended for Scrum Masters with at least one year of experience who are looking to grow their knowledge and abilities as a Scrum Master. This course is one step in that journey. The course also includes a free attempt at the globally recognized Professional Scrum Master II (PSM II) certification exam.

Unlike the Professional Scrum Master (PSM) course which focuses on how to use Scrum, the Scrum framework and the role of the Scrum Master, PSM II is an advanced course helping students to understand the stances that characterize an effective Scrum Master and servant-leader while diving deep into how they serve the Scrum Team, Product Owner, and organization. The class then teaches students about related practices and skills to enable them to have the right types of conversations and how to apply them to become better Scrum Masters.

IS THIS PSM II TRAINING FOR ME?

The Professional Scrum Master II course is an advanced course specifically designed for experienced Scrum Masters who have a thorough understanding of the Scrum framework. It is particularly beneficial for those people with at least one year of Scrum Master experience.

TELL ME MORE. WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT?

Over the 2 days, students will learn about areas critical to growing as a successful Scrum Master such as how the principles and values of Scrum help guide Scrum Masters in the decisions they make and how the Scrum Master can help change the environment of Scrum Teams, creating an environment for agility to thrive. The Scrum Master role is complex and often, a Scrum Master must be able to apply different stances in order to be effective, such as:

  • The Scrum Master as a Teacher
  • The Scrum Master as a Coach & Mentor
  • The Scrum Master as a Facilitator
  • The Scrum Master as a Change Agent

As a Scrum Master, being able to identify, and effectively apply, which stance would benefit your team the most depending on the situation or circumstance could prove to be the key to the success of your team.

As a Scrum Master, part of your role is to help management and other stakeholders across your organization understand the benefits of Scrum and Agile. Therefore, it is imperative that you have the information and background that is needed to gain credibility in order to be an effective change agent. Throughout the class, your PST will provide stories, exercises, facilitation techniques (such as “Liberating Structures”), resources and more.

There will also be time in class for the Professional Scrum Trainer (PST) to provide coaching on challenges that you and your classmates may be experiencing today or may in the future.

WHAT WILL I GET OUT OF THIS COURSE?

  • What practices, tools, skills and stances make an effective Scrum Master
  • How the Scrum principles and values help guide Scrum Masters in the decisions they make
  • How the Scrum Master acts as a servant-leader and improve their ability in this role
  • What the Scrum Master can do to support Development Teams and Product Owners to become more effective
  • Ways that the Scrum Master can help to change the environment making it more conducive for Scrum Teams to be successful with greater agility
  • Provide tips and techniques for the Scrum Master to work with the rest of the organization in support of their Scrum Teams

ASSESSMENT AND CERTIFICATION

All participants completing the Professional Scrum Master II course will receive a password to attempt the Professional Scrum Master II (PSM II) assessment and are also entitled to a 40% discount on the PSM III assessment. These industry-recognized PSM certifications require a minimum passing score.

Why Our Class?

  • Together with Scrum.org, we created and continue to develop this PSM-II class. As Scrum.org Course Stewards for the Scrum Master curriculum we work hard to improve the materials and ensure the highest quality;
  • With tons of exercises and energizers we will keep you from dozing off during two high-energy days. No boring PowerPoints. In fact, we will not even be using a beamer;
  • Every course will be facilitated by three (!) experienced trainers that have coached numerous Scrum Teams over the years;

About The Liberators

As The Liberators, Barry Overeem and Christiaan Verwijs take a radical approach to organizational change. Rather than taking the lead, they empower people within organizations to drive change themselves. As facilitators, they create space where people can tackle difficult challenges together while also having fun. Inspired by the fields of complexity science and organizational psychology, they use frameworks like Scrum, Lean Change Management and Liberating Structures to deliver fast-paced interactions, high involvement, and creative destruction.

With a strong focus on radical transparency, an experiential approach and creating a shared purpose, they put organizations in a position to thrive on complexity rather than being defeated by it. Are you ready to leave your comfort zone and unleash your superpowers?
