Applying Professional Scrum
Spokane, November 8-9, 2018
Professional Scrum Foundations™ (PSF) is a two-day course that provides the foundational knowledge needed to work with Scrum in a highly practical way. The course is a combination of instruction and team-based exercises where students experience how the Scrum framework improves product development efforts. The course also includes two free attempts (details below) at the globally recognized Professional Scrum Master I (PSM I) certification exam.
What You Will Learn
Over the two days, students are introduced to the mechanics of Scrum, gaining insights into overcoming complexity, dealing with team-based collaboration and self-organization as essential elements in mastering Scrum. Students work together as a team in a series of Sprints to build a software application, thereby facing real-life problems. The mechanics, roles and principles of Scrum are leveraged during the exercises. From its emphasis on the practical application of Scrum, the course exposes common missteps and misunderstandings, so students grow a higher awareness of the associated symptoms. The course provides guidance to help keep Scrum habits healthy while equipping students with the tools needed to avoid going off track.
Professional Scrum Foundations is excellent training for teams and anyone wanting to experience the way of working in Scrum. The course also provides the foundation of knowledge needed for role-focused training for Product Owners, Scrum Masters and Developers.
Professional Scrum Master Certification
All participants completing the Professional Scrum Foundations course will receive a password to attempt the Professional Scrum Master I (PSM I) assessment. If you attempt the PSM I assessment within 14 days and do not score at least 85%, you will be granted a second attempt at no additional cost.
