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