The 2-day Professional Scrum Master IIcourse is an advanced course helping students to understand the stances that characterize an effective Scrum Master and servant-leader. The class 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.

What You Will Learn

Over the 2 days, students will learn about areas critical to growing as a successful Scrum Master. They'll learn how the principles and values of Scrum help guide Scrum Masters in the decisions they make and how the Scrum Master can help change the environment of Scrum Teams, creating an environment for agility to thrive. The Scrum Master role is complex and often, a Scrum Master must be able to apply different stances in order to be effective, such as:

  • 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 need to be able to identify, and effectively apply which stance would benefit your team the most depending on the situation.

As a Scrum Master, part of your role is to help management and other stakeholders across your organization understand the benefits of Scrum and Agile. Therefore, it is imperative that you have the information and background that is needed to gain credibility in order to be an effective change agent.  Throughout the class, your Professional Scrum Trainer (PST) will provide stories, exercises, facilitation techniques (such as “Liberating Structures”), resources and more. There will also be time in class for the PST to provide coaching on challenges that you and your classmates may be experiencing today.

Course Objectives

  • What practices, tools, skills and stances make an effective Scrum Master

  • How the Scrum principles and values help guide Scrum Masters in the decisions they make

  • How the Scrum Master acts as a servant-leader and improves their ability in this role

  • What the Scrum Master can do to support Development Teams and Product Owners to become more effective

  • Ways that the Scrum Master can help to change the environment making it more conducive for Scrum Teams to be successful with greater agility

  • Provide tips and techniques for the Scrum Master to work with the rest of the organization in support of their Scrum Teams

Certification

All participants completing the Professional Scrum Master II course will receive a password to attempt the Professional Scrum Master II (PSM II) assessment. Students attending Scrum.org training classes learn the importance of inspection, adaptation, and fast feedback cycles. To reinforce these concepts, students who attend a class, and achieve less than 85% on the corresponding assessment within 14 days from when their initial password e-mail is sent, will be given a 2nd attempt at no cost.

Participants are also entitled to a 40% discount on the PSM III assessment.

These industry-recognized PSM certifications require a minimum passing score.

Premise

Becoming an agile organization is a profound transformation that requires senior leaders, middle managers, and agile team members to change the way that they organize their work, manage that work, and measure the results of the work. Agile teams cannot do this on their own; they need help from the entire organization. The changes for all involved are profound, but so are the results when everyone's goals and ways of working are aligned.

Expected Outcomes After Attending the Workshop

You will understand where and how agility can help your organization improve, by addressing challenges you can solve in no other way. You will also understand how agile teams work and what you, as a manager or leader, can do to help them to improve. You will also be able to quantify the benefits of improving the agility of your organization through concrete measures. 

This class can be delivered on-site, in a specific organization, to help its leaders understand their important role in transforming their organization, or in a public class setting.

Professional Agile Leadership Certification

All participants completing the Professional Agile Leadership - Essentials course will receive a password to attempt the Professional Agile Leadership I (PAL I) certification assessment. PAL-E class participants who attempt the PAL I assessment within 14 days of receiving their free password and do not score at least 85% will be granted a 2nd attempt at no additional cost..

What You Will Learn
