Professional Scrum Master Dublin, May 3-4, 2018


Course Overview

Professional Scrum Master (PSM) is a 2-day course that covers the principles and (empirical) process theory underpinning the Scrum framework, and the role of the Scrum Master in it. This course is a combination of instruction and team-based exercises.

Over an intensive 2 days, students will see why PSM is the cutting-edge course for effective Scrum Masters and for anyone coaching a software development team toward increased efficiency and effectiveness. 

Throughout the course, students are challenged to think in terms of the Scrum principles to better understand what to do when returning to the workplace. The PSM course is interactive, experiential, and uses techniques from "Training from the Back of the Room". In this course, students work on real-life cases with other class-mates together as a team. This course is made up of discussions and hands-on exercises based upon real-life cases.

The course covers all the topics related to Professional Scrum Master I (PSM I), Professional Scrum Master II (PSM II) and Professional Scrum Master III (PSM III) certification assessments.
