The VP of our Agile Innovation Practice, Todd Miller, will be teaching several public PSM & PSMII courses starting in January. As 1 of only 57 Scrum.Org Professional Scrum Trainers in the USA, Todd uses examples from his boots-on-the-ground practical experience to break down the most complex practices in a way that is actionable and easy to understand.

Professional Scrum Master™ (PSM)

Professional Scrum Master I™ (PSM) course is a 2-day course that covers the principles and (empirical) process theory underpinning the mechanics, rules and roles of the Scrum framework. Advanced tools for servant-leadership are provided to increase a Scrum Master’s effectiveness. These tools relate to behavioral shifts, working with people and teams, coaching and facilitation techniques, and addressing the organization. Like all Scrum.org courses, students learn through instruction and team-based exercises.

The Professional Scrum Master (PSM) course focuses on how to use Scrum, the Scrum framework and the role of the Scrum Master. PSM will cover: Theory and Principles, The Scrum Framework, Done and Undone, Product Delivery with Scrum, People and Teams and The Scrum Master.

Professional Scrum Master II™ (PSM II)

Professional Scrum Master 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.

PSM II is an advanced course helping students to understand the stances that characterize an effective Scrum Master and servant-leader while diving deep into how they serve the Development Team, 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.

Students will learn about areas critical to growing as a successful Scrum Master. They will discuss 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 the conditions for agility to thrive. Students will also explore related practices and skills which will enable them to have the right types of conversations and how to apply them to become better Scrum Masters.
