Get a deeper understanding of the accountabilities of the Scrum Master and continue your professional journey. Explore the challenges that Scrum Masters face, how to handle them by applying the principles and values of Scrum to help support the Scrum Team, and dive deep into how Scrum Masters serve the Scrum Team, Product Owner and the organization.
The 2-day Professional Scrum Master II (PSM II) course is an advanced class, designed to support Scrum Masters in their professional development, and in their journey to help their teams and organisations adopt Scrum.
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 dives deep into how Scrum Masters serve the Scrum Team, the Product Owner, and the broader organization. The scenarios explored will help participants understand what characterises the Scrum Master as a host-leader and as a change agent.
Participants 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 the conditions for agility to thrive. Participants will also explore numerous complementary practices and skills which will enable them to have the right types of conversations and how to apply them to become better Scrum Masters.
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 - all of which participants will be able to take back into their workplaces as part of their own toolkit. 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.
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.
