More Information

Language: English


This class is not the same as other Professional Scrum classes as it uses the innovative Scrum Lake* ecosystem to support the training. Scrum Lake is a metaphorical ecosystem for Agile practitioners to learn, explore and thrive within. Importantly, it creates an environment of safety for participants to access at any level of their Scrum journey, such that they can access the support they need to develop their practice. Fundamentally, the ecosystem is built upon the concept of Shu (experience the rules), Ha (learn and challenge the rules) and Ri (transcend the rules). More information on this approach to Scrum learning can be found here.


Whilst Scrum Lake: Professional Scrum Master I Training is still accredited and assessed by, the differentiator with this training is that student learning is supported and embodied by the Scrum Lake ecosystem. This is seen in themed activities that flow from one concept to another instead of independent learning opportunities - the training is a journey that is, in part, co-created by the participants as they experience it. All of the same learning objectives and core activities from the Professional Scrum Master class are met (and exceeded), but this class is delivered in a different way.

You will begin your exploration of Scrum Lake by landing at Ken Schwaber Airport and taking a trip to the local ScrumHOTEL. There, you will drop off your baggage and hear more about the excursions you will be experiencing throughout your stay, but importantly, you will also drop off your baggage and meet your fellow travellers. From there, it's over to Scrum Lake where you will spend the majority of the class exploring the Scrum framework through innovative themed activities. When you're all scrummed out, we'll leave Scrum Lake for your check-out. You will leave Scrum Lake feeling refreshed, energised and empowered.
