Scrum.org Professional Scrum Master

COURSE OVERVIEW

This 2-day course covers the Scrum basics, including the principles and theory underpinning the mechanics, rules, and roles of the Scrum framework. Based on these foundational insights, attendees learn how to use Scrum to optimize value, productivity, and the total cost of ownership of software products. Advanced thinking tools are introduced to support servant-leadership and behavioral shifts, working with people and teams, coaching and facilitation, and addressing the organization.

Students learn through interactive 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.
