Professional Scrum Master Baku, Oct 8-9, 2020
Important: If Covid-19 travel restrictions are NOT lifted, this class will be provided VIRTUALLY on the same training days.
PSM is the cutting-edge course for effective Scrum Masters and for anyone coaching a software development team toward increased efficiency and effectiveness. The course includes advanced thinking for servant-leadership and behavioural shifts and teaches what is at the heart of the Scrum and Agile movement.
The Professional Scrum Master I training is intended for people who work with Scrum and need to shape up their knowledge to better collaborate in a scrum team as a development team member or a Scrum Master. This training will provide a theoretical background and many, many practical experiences. The course also includes a free attempt at the globally recognised Professional Scrum Master I (PSM I) certification exam.
Throughout the 2-day course, students are challenged to think in terms of the Scrum principles to better understand what to do when returning to the workplace. When you leave the training, you will be able to assess if your Scrum implementation is tailored in a correct way. We aim for people to understand “the why” and help you develop yourself, your teams and your company.
The PSM course is much more than just a set of slides and an instructor. In this course, students work on real-life cases with other classmates together as a team. This course is made up of discussions and hands-on exercises based upon real-life cases.
Good training structure, understandable delivery, lot of examples and practical activities. Thanks for training!
