Professional Scrum Master - Advanced

Amersfoort, October 7-8, 2024

Class Overview



Professional Scrum Master II (PSM II) course is a 2-day advanced Scrum Master class designed to support Scrum Masters in their professional development. The PSM II course is intended for Scrum Masters with at least one year of experience who are looking to grow their knowledge and abilities as a Scrum Master. This course is one step in that journey. The course also includes a free attempt at the globally recognized Professional Scrum Master II (PSM II) certification exam.

Unlike the Professional Scrum  Master I (PSM I) which focuses on how to use Scrum, the Scrum framework and the role of the Scrum Master, PSM II is an advanced course helping students to understand the stances that characterize an effective Scrum Master and servant-leader while diving deep into how they serve the Development Team, Product Owner and organization. The course then teaches students about related practices and skills to enable them to have the right types of conversations and how to apply them to become better Scrum

What You Will Learn

Over the 2 days, students will learn about areas critical to growing as a successful Scrum Master such as how the principles and values of Scrum help guide Scrum Masters in the decisions they make and how the Scrum Master can help change the environment of Scrum Teams, creating an environment for agility to thrive. The Scrum Master role is complex and often, a Scrum Master must be able to apply different stances in order to be effective, such as:

  • The Scrum Master as a Teacher
  • The Scrum Master as a Coach & Mentor
  • The Scrum Master as a Facilitator
  • The Scrum Master as a Change Agent

As a Scrum Master, being able to identify, and effectively apply, which stance would benefit your team the most depending on the situation or circumstance could prove to be the key to the success of your team.

As a Scrum Master, part of your role is to help management and other stakeholders across your organization understand the benefits of Scrum and Agile. Therefore, it is imperative that you have the information and background that is needed to gain credibility in order to be an effective change agent.  Throughout the class, your PST will provide stories, exercises, facilitation techniques (such as “Liberating Structures”), resources and more.

There will also be time in class for the Professional Scrum Trainer (PST) to provide coaching on challenges that you and your classmates may be experiencing today or may in the future.  


During this training we'll also be introducing practical coaching techniques, methods and practices to help you think, listen, talk and act as a coach to help your team and organisation.

Who Should Attend

The Professional Scrum Master II course is an advanced course specifically designed for experienced Scrum Masters who have a thorough understanding of the Scrum framework.  It is particularly beneficial for those people with at least one year of Scrum Master experience.

More Information

Sjoerd Kranendonk

Cartoon figure of a white male with short light brown hair, a blue blouse and a orange circle as a backgroundSjoerd Kranendonk is an active Scrum practitioner who started as a full-stack software developer. In those early days, he was already trying to support collaboration and improve stakeholder interactions (circa 2012).

From there, things escalated quickly. After discovering Scrum and seeing the challenges and potential of the Scrum Master role, Sjoerd promptly grew in the role and became licensed as a Professional Scrum Trainer in 2017. From the outset, Sjoerd collaborated with(in) teams, building valuable products while collaborating with stakeholders beyond the team. Sharing knowledge and helping others share theirs is his favourite way of learning and assisting others to learn. This approach can be found in his Scrum Master and Agile Coaching assignments, his projects and the classes, like the one you are looking at now.

Sjoerd has always had a keen interest in the human side of Product Management and applying empiricism to discover what is valuable to the relevant Stakeholders involved. Scrum and empiricism help us get assumptions clear and validate or dispel them as a team. This helps us make better decisions, improve our work, and effectively create valuable products and services.
