Professional Scrum MasterTM II (PSM II) course is a 2-day advanced Scrum Master class designed to support Scrum Masters in professional development. The PSM II course is intended for Scrum Masters with at least one year of experience 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 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 a better Scrum Masters.
Over the 2 days, students will learn about areas critical to growing as a successful Scrum Master such as 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 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, identifying and effectively applying which stance would benefit your team the most depending on the situation or circumstance could prove to be the key to your team’s success.
As a Scrum Master, part of your role is to help management and other stakeholders across your organization understand Scrum and Agile’s benefits. Therefore, you must have the information and background needed to gain credibility to be an effective change agent. Your PST will provide stories, exercises, facilitation techniques (such as “Liberating Structures”), resources, and more throughout the class.
There will also be a time in class for the Professional Scrum Trainer (PST) to coach on challenges that you and your classmates may be experiencing today or may in the future.
