Are you a manager working with one or more Scrum Teams and want to gain deep understanding how to best facilitate these teams so they can deliver valuable software every 30 days or less?

Then Professional Scrum Master (PSM) is the training you want for you or your employees. In the past few years our trainers have helped hundreds of participants to start or refresh their Agile way of working with this training.

The course teaches the mechanics of Scrum, as well as provides insights into complexity, team-based collaboration and self-organization as essential elements in mastering Scrum. Students will experience how the Scrum framework improves product development efforts.
