Professional Scrum Master Chicago, Aug 16-17, 2017
The Professional Scrum Master (PSM) course is a 2-day course that covers the principles and (empirical) process theory underpinning the mechanics, rules and roles of the Scrum framework. Professional Scrum Master is THE cutting-edge course for effective Scrum Masters and anyone supporting a software development team's efficiency and effectiveness.
Responsive Advisors is committed to a holistic approach to agility and scrum. Instructor, Robert Pieper is the founder and Principal Consultant of Responsive Advisors.
How We Do It:
- Our advisors help make Scrum stick by fully explaining the “why” behind Scrum (we don't just throw charts and graphs at you).
- We have deep and broad industry experience and can uniquely apply it to real-world problems.
- We address the sticky issues of interpersonal communication and team dynamics. We find that many Scrum problems are actually people problems.
- We know how to communicate difficult-to-grasp agile concepts to technical and non-technical audiences alike.
Price: USD 1495
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.
Advanced tools for servant-leadership are provided to increase a Scrum Master’s effectiveness. These tools relate to behavioral shifts, working with people and teams, coaching and facilitation techniques, and addressing the organization.
Students learn through instruction and team-based exercises, and are challenged to think in terms of the Scrum principles to better understand what to do when returning to the workplace.
Students are challenged to think within the Scrum Framework and the underlying values and principles to better understand what to do when returning to the workplace and facing complex decisions.

WHAT THEY'RE SAYING ABOUT OUR INSTRUCTORS
"Thank you again for a great class last week! I came back excited to share what I'd learned with the rest of the company - I'd argue that's not something that can't be said for most classes. Loved the small class size and open communication. Would definitely recommend to others at my organization." PSM student 3/16/17
“Busting some of the myths of what is and isn’t scrum was helpful. Lots of good guidance on how to maximize our use of scrum. Good clarification on the purpose of many of the scrum concepts.” PSM student 2/17/17
"“A good balance between theory and examples vague enough to elicit great discussion and interactions, but relevant enough to get concrete knowledge to take home.” PSM student 2/17/17
