About the Course

We equip leaders to form and support Agile teams and be at the forefront of cultural and behavioral shifts necessary for successful agile transformationClick here for curriculum details.

Am I going to be bored?

No way!! Our classes are small, highly interactive, and feel just like being in a room of colleagues having a discussion. We joke around, keep the mood light, but are all business when it comes to the facts about Scrum and getting you prepared for the assessment. We were first in the virtual Professional Scrum training space and have tons of experience making virtual classes engaging and interesting.


With our strong business and technology backgrounds, we love showing you in class how you can apply Scrum in your world. We’ll ensure you leave understanding how to connect the dots at the office.

Many Responsive Advisors’ alumni are also interested in certification to validate their knowledge of Professional Scrum. We’ve got you covered.  During class we offer numerous study tips on how to pass the assessment. We also give our alumni a unique test preparation tool which will help you more deeply understand Scrum and thus be more likely to pass the assessment.

What Should I Expect in class?

Our courses at Responsive Advisors are much more than a static powerpoint presentation with a monotone instructor. Students learn through a mix of discussion, lecture, and hands-on activities designed to reinforce the classroom learnings. Afterwards you’ll feel confident applying what you’ve learned in the workplace. Check out this video we made to get a sense of how a class goes!
