Professional Scrum Master

Live Virtual Class, May 23-24, 2024

Class Overview

💣⭐   ✳  𝐆𝐮𝐚𝐫𝐚𝐧𝐭𝐞𝐞𝐝 𝐭𝐨 𝐑𝐮𝐧 ✳⭐💣

In this two-day class* students are challenged to explore the Agile and Scrum principles so they can better
understand what to do when applying Scrum to support their teams and organizations.


The course, developed by Scrum.org, uses a combination of instructor-led and activity-based learning where
students work together in teams. Professional Scrum Trainers (PSTs) bring their own Scrum Master experiences
and stories to the class and use their skills as professional trainers to deliver the material using their own unique
delivery style. The result is an engaging, enjoyable learning experience where students deeply understand Scrum theory and principles, the Scrum Master accountabilities, and why each element of the
The Scrum framework is essential.


Students leave this course with an appreciation for Professional Scrum, the agile mindset, and how to deal with
common myths and impediments to agility. They gain knowledge and understanding about choosing and applying the appropriate practices and techniques that will be most beneficial for their Scrum Teams.

Course Learning Objectives

• Help Scrum Teams deliver value to their organization
• Understand the theory and principles behind Scrum and empiricism
• Understand how each part of the Scrum framework ties back to the principles and theory
• Understand uncertainty and complexity in product delivery
• Understand the meaning and importance of the Scrum values
• Learn what Done means and why it is crucial to transparency
• Know how to use the Product Backlog to plan with agility
• Understand the importance of self-managing teams, interpersonal skills needed, and the Scrum Master role
• Clarify the leadership role a Scrum Master plays on the team
• Learn the skills, traits and behavior shifts required to be a Scrum Master

In general, Scrum Masters face two significant challenges:

  • The misinterpretation of the role of Scrum Master as an ‘Agile project manager’ or personal coach.
  • The misinterpretation that Scrum is a delivery method mainly for IT people, teams, and departments.

Common myths debunked during class:

  • ‘Doing math’ is a way to predict the future.
  • A product cannot be released until the end of a Sprint.
  • Velocity is a measure of team productivity.
  • Scrum Master is an administrative assistant, team lead, Agile project manager, and individual coach.
  • Sprint Review is a demo or where the business approves or rejects the work. 
  • The main purpose of Agile is to deliver the same things as a traditional approach but faster and cheaper.
  • When Scrum Masters become more effective, they should be given more teams.

The overall goal of this course is to equip the student to master Scrum. It is a deep and holistic survey of the Scrum framework: how and why the roles and rules interact.  The course provides essential knowledge for anyone responsible for effective Scrum application.
