The PSM course material was interesting and challenging, he did a great job making it relevant. There is real world applicability.
Gave a lot of real world/life scenarios… I truly understand the role of Scrum Master.
Specific situations and how a Scrum Master should handle them were pinpointed in the course… it was very informative.
