Customer Voices:

“Very hands-on class with lots of concrete takeaways to help in real world scenarios. Reinforced practices and highlighted things that helped in passing the PSM II exam but that was merely a bonus as the content of the class is so useful – certifications or not. Stefan Wolpers is an excellent trainer with broad practical and theoretical knowledge on the subject and his classes seem to have very good working atmosphere (this was a second class by him that I have taken).” (Link.)
“It was a second time I attended a training led by Stefan and I strongly recommend. Stefan puts a strong emphasis on liberating structures and students interactions. He’s an excellent trainer and his classes are highly engaging. Overall – one of my best learning experiences. I felt very confident taking my PSM II assessment two days after the class and passed on my first attempt.” (Link.)

“Outstanding PSM II experience: Having looked forward to attending this class, literally for years, it was everything I expected, hoped for and then some. I am so grateful that this was an online virtual class, as it added an additional dimension to the learning, and was incredibly insightful. The trainer did an outstanding job of taking us through the learning plan, facilitating discussions, guiding the outcome and believing in the structures. Whether the learning was tangible curriculum, or intangible observation, it was excellent – made even more solid by the open sharing from my classmates and willingness from everyone to participate.” (Link.)

“Thank you Stefan Wolpers for the great Scrum [PSM II] workshop and everyone else for the amount of great conversations we had. Definitely learnt a lot!” (Link.)

“Excellent course and excellent trainer. [The PSM II class] was a lot of fun and we exchanged a lot of experience among advanced class mates. @Stefan: keep rocking!” (Link.)

“First of all, thanks to Stefan Wolpers for hosting a truly, truly amazing PSM II class with spirited, passionate individuals and exciting discussions.” (Link.)

“It was absolutely wonderful experience with this (4 days, 4 hours each) class facilitated by Stefan Wolpers. I am very much impressed on how the [4-day] agenda was planned and executed especially using the Liberating structures. There was a not of sharing and learning in the group and real thought process tackling real time issues as a scrum master. I would recommend his session without a doubt.” (Link.)

More Information

Who Shall Attend the Training?

This advanced Scrum Master training class focuses on furthering the participants’ understanding of the role of the Scrum Master, what makes a Scrum Master successful, and the mindset that is needed to become an effective servant leader. The class is hence well-suited for practicing Scrum Masters who want to advance their professional development and take the next career step.

Please note that the Professional Scrum Master II class is not suited for beginners. The PSM II training requires an advanced level of Scrum knowledge from attendees as well as hands-on experience in supporting Scrum Teams for at least 6-12 months. It is also recommended attending a PSM I training class in advance.

Learning Objectives of the Advanced Scrum Master Training Class

The class covers in detail the stances that Scrum Masters need to adopt when dealing with complexity, organizational debt, outdated technology, challenging market conditions, or difficult people, namely:

  • The Scrum Master as a Teacher
  • The Scrum Master as a Coach & Mentor
  • The Scrum Master as a Facilitator
  • The Scrum Master as a Change Agent.

As a Scrum Master, you are regarded as the go-to-person for all things “agile and Scrum” in your organization, as the prime change agent. You will hence need to be expertly familiar with techniques, tools, and practices that allow you to support your management, your stakeholders, your Product Owners, and Scrum Teams on their journey to achieve business agility.

This PSM II class provides you with an excellent starting point for your journey to Professional Scrum. In the class, we will share tools; our lessons learned, exercises, and stories that will help you to become more proficient in Scrum. Also, we will explore the most potent facilitation techniques available to Scrum Masters to date — Liberating Structures — extensively.

PSM II Training Focus

The Professional Scrum Master II training will focus on:

  • Effects on the organization of a successful Scrum Master
  • Dealing with complexity and servant leadership
  • Dealing with team conflict
  • Removing impediments
  • Facilitation techniques
  • The Importance of a “Done” Increment
  • The Sprint Goal
  • Refresh the purpose of the Scrum Events
  • The role of management in Scrum
  • Successful product delivery
  • Measurement in Scrum
  • How to support the Product Owner
  • Understanding the challenges of middle management
  • Scrum Master as a change agent.

What Will You Take Home with You?

This Advanced Professional Scrum Master training will provide both the PSM II class manual as well as the PSM II certification code. (Including an additional complimentary code within the first 14 days after the completion of the class if the trainee does not achieve 85 % the first time.)

Additionally, you will also receive a book and several ebooks from Stefan that provide proven hands-on tactics to excel at your position of Scrum Master, thus furthering your career potential.

Please note that while the Professional Scrum Master II class includes the PSM II certification, the class is not directly linked to this certification. The class is not about passing the PSM II certification but focused on making attending Scrum Masters more successful in their profession.
