Course Overview

If you are Polish resident please contact me before you register for the class: info@magdalenafirlit.com

.

Professional Scrum Master II (PSM-II) is a 2-day advanced class for practicing Scrum Masters to support their further professional development.

Unlike the Professional Scrum Master (PSM) course which focuses on how to use Scrum, the Scrum framework and the role of the Scrum Master, PSM II is an advanced course helping students to understand the stances that characterize an effective Scrum Master and servant-leader while diving deep into how they serve the Development Team, Product Owner and organization. The course then teaches students about related practices and skills to enable them to have the right types of conversations and how to apply them to become better Scrum Masters.

A worldwide recognized certification assessment Professional Scrum Master II is included.

Who should attend

Scrum Masters with a thorough understanding of Scrum framework who are looking to grow their knowledge and abilities as a Scrum Master. It is particularly beneficial for those with at least 1 year of experience.

In 2008, during my postgraduate university course, I discovered Scrum as an effective
framework and from that time I have been successively learning how to apply Scrum, spread
it and improve software development. I work worldwide with big companies (+10 000) as
well as with medium and small size ones, helping them improve their empirical approach,
value delivery and business agility. I cooperate with the whole organization, from decision-
makers to Scrum Teams, to better understand their needs and be more effective in terms of
consulting and training.


I also share my experience widely as an international speaker at conferences and business
events. As a creator of Agile Series at Women in Technology, I provide workshops and teach
all people interested in Scrum and Agility. I’m also helping organize Agile conferences, for
instance I was involved in Scrum Days organization. I’m a co-organizer the first Liberating
Structures meetup in Poland.
