We also suggest that you read through the PSM Subject Areas.

Product Delivery with Scrum Framework
Learning by doing is the key factor here. Participants work in a group like real scrum teams. They learn by practicing Scrum on a live project. Small Scrum team plays roles, creates artifacts to understand transparency, and uses inspection and adaptation events.
Working with People And Teams
Since Scrum is a process framework and makes processes work, the organization has to strive hard to resolve problems from the people and the team. There will be numerous group discussions around challenges faced by the majority of these organizations while adopting Scrum.
Working with Organizational Challenges
It is more like an assessment to understand what organizations do good or not while practicing Scrum. People identify areas that need further improvement to gain from Scrum.
The Role of Scrum Master
An empowered Scrum Master can bring in positive change, but change becomes difficult when the change agent is not pragmatic.

Let’s understand the advantages and disadvantages of the agile way of working.
We will also discuss the various models for organizational agility and ways to adopt them. The focus will be on owning a roadmap for organizational agility vs. renting processes.
