Professional Scrum Master (PSM) – Burlington, MA – August 2019 – Guaranteed to Run

August 6 @ 9:00 am - August 7 @ 5:00 pm

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 and teaches what is at the heart of the Scrum and Agile movement.

The class is Guaranteed to Run. You can register and plan your travel/schedule with the confidence that it will take place. We already have more than enough participants registered to make sure it runs. 

Scrum Master Training

Who Should Attend

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, and Scrum Team members.

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. The course includes advanced thinking for servant-leadership and behavioral shifts.

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 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.
