Professional Scrum MasterTM II (PSM II) course is a 2-day* advanced Scrum Master class designed to support Scrum Masters in their professional development. The PSM II course is intended for Scrum Masters with at least one year of experience who are looking to grow their knowledge and abilities as a Scrum Master. This course is one step in that journey. The course also includes a free attempt at the globally recognized Professional Scrum Master II (PSM II) certification exam.
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 while diving deep into how they serve the Developers, 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.
The course also includes a free attempt at the globally recognized Professional Scrum Master I (PSM I) certification exam.
I typically teach the PSM-II as part of an agile/scrum boost engagement – either as a standalone class or an immersive program for practicing Scrum Masters and people who lead Scrum Masters. This class also equips these participants with advanced facilitation techniques they can leverage beyond the Scrum events/meetings.I’m interested in bringing in the PSM-II workshop for my team
