Professional Scrum Master

Taught by Faisal Mahmood
September 13-14, 2012 in Ankara, Turkey

The Professional Scrum Master (PSM) course is the first significant update of the Certified Scrum Master (CSM) course that Ken Schwaber introduced and shared in 2002. As in the original course, the framework, mechanics, and roles of Scrum are covered. The course then goes further by teaching students how to use Scrum to optimize value, productivity, and the total cost of ownership of systems and products. Students will learn through instruction and team-based exercises, and will be challenged to think on their feet to better understand what to do when they return to their workplaces.

Description

The purpose of the Professional Scrum Master course is to give students a solid grounding in Scrum and its core principles, from which they can make opportunistic decisions about how to use it best. Students learn why certain decisions are better than others, and why some support Agility while others ultimately lead back to waterfall. 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. The 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 principles.
