Professional Scrum Master Chicago, Aug 20-21, 2018


Course Overview

Learn Scrum from Gary Pedretti, a Professional Scrum Trainer that Ken Schwaber, co-creator of Scrum, describes as,

"…one who knows Scrum, agile, and software development with deep knowledge of how to create value and good outcomes...If you need help, want to talk with someone, and want facts rather than spin, talk to Gary."

The Professional Scrum Master (PSM) is a two-day course that teaches Scrum – the most popular framework under the Agile umbrella – in a practical, experiential way. It prepares students – and includes one free assessment voucher – for the Professional Scrum Master (PSM) certification. The course is designed for anyone using Scrum – especially Scrum Masters and others championing Scrum in the organization.

The class goes beyond just the Roles, Events, and Artifacts of Scrum, and explains the theoretical underpinnings and “whys” behind the framework. It also 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.
