Objectives
The purpose of the PSM course is to give participants a solid grounding in Scrum and its core principles, from which they can make opportunistic decisions about how to use it best. Participants learn why certain decisions are better than others as well as why some support Agility while others ultimately lead back to a waterfall model. They will also learn how to use Scrum productivity metrics to monitor the results of their decisions and how to optimize those results.

Getting the most out of Scrum requires a solid knowledge of how it works and why. Pyxis’ ‘Professional Scrum Master’ course will cover these as well as several advanced topics, like managing risk and optimizing total cost of ownership, that build on Scrum’s underlying Agile principles.

Target audience
The course is primarily targeted at those responsible for the successful use and/or rollout of Scrum in a project or enterprise.

Content

  • Scrum theory
    Why does Scrum work and what are its core principles? How the Scrum principles are different from those of more traditional software development approaches, and what is the impact?

     
  • Scrum and change
    Scrum is different: what does this mean in regard of my project and my organization? How do I best adopt Scrum given the changes that are expected?

 

  • Scrum teams
    Scrum teams are self-organizing and cross-functional; this is different from traditional development groups. How do we start with Scrum teams and how do we ensure their success?

     
  • Scrum planning
    Plan a project and estimate its cost and completion date.

     
  • Predictability, risk management, and reporting
    Scrum is an empirical process. How can predictions be made, risk be controlled, and progress be tracked using Scrum.

     
  • Scaling Scrum
    Scrum works great with one team. It also works better than anything else for projects or product releases that involve hundreds or thousands of globally dispersed team members. How is scaling best accomplished using Scrum?
