Description

Scrum.org Professional Scrum Master (PSM) I - Exeter New Hampshire

** GUARANTEED TO RUN **

Learn Scrum From Those Who Created and Maintain It

Scrum.org’s Professional Scrum Master™ (PSM) is a 2-day course that covers the principles and (empirical) process theory underpinning the Scrum framework, and the role of the Scrum Master in it. This course is a combination of instruction and team-based exercises, which teaches what is at the heart of the Scrum and Agile movement.

Over the 2 days, students will see why PSM is the cutting-edge course for effective Scrum Masters and for anyone coaching a software development team toward increased efficiency and effectiveness. The course includes advanced thinking for servant-leadership and behavioral shifts.

Target Audience

The Professional Scrum Master course is targeted to Scrum Masters and anyone else responsible for the successful use and/or rollout of Scrum. Any team member, team manager, or person who is looking to know how to lead in an agile organization can benefit from this course. We have found this very valuable for:

  • Project and Product Managers
  • Development and QA Managers
  • Existing Scrum Masters who want to improve their skill set
  • Business Analysts
  • Product Owners
  • Developers, QA / Testers
  • Team Leads and Architects

Prerequisites

There is no required prior certificate, educational background, or work experience needed to participate in this PSM I course or to take the PSM I exam. The PSM I course is designed to introduce you to the fundamentals of the Scrum framework, and the role of the Scrum Master in it. As such all backgrounds are welcome to join and achieve Professional Master Certification (PSM) I.

What You Will Learn

Over the 2 days, students will explore the mindset and practices they need to coach a team toward increased efficiency and effectiveness in a world of uncertainty. Throughout the course, students are challenged to think in terms of the Scrum principles to better understand what to do when returning to the workplace.

The PSM I 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.

What's Included:

  • Two intense days of experiential learning.
  • 1 free attempt to earn your PSM I certification. If you attempt the PSM I assessment within 14 days and do not score at least 85%, you will be granted a 2nd attempt at no additional cost.
  • Access to full slide deck and complementary materials used during the course.
  • Digital version of Course Workbook.
  • 40% discount on an attempt to earn your PSM II certification.
