This course will be the brand new Advanced Certified Scrum Master class! After working with the Scrum Alliance for a while now in order to help improve the training pathway for ScrumMasters and Product Owners, we’re excited to announce that our Advanced ScrumMaster class has become the first in the world to be accredited as a Scrum Alliance approved, Advanced Certified Scrum Master class!
By building upon the core Scrum framework, we will help you move towards a professional and practitioner ScrumMaster level, allowing you to realise more of the untapped potential of you and your team.
This course is step 2 on the Path to CSP program, building on your CSM qualification and hands on experience as a Scrum Master. After completion of this course not only will you be a more effective Scrum Master but you will also be one step away from being a Certified Scrum Professional.
Please note to be eligible for the A-CSM certification you must satisfy the following criteria:
- Hold a previous or current CSM license
- Complete the pre-class assessment
- Be prepared to share your experiences of being in a Scrum team
- Attend the full two-day class
- Complete a short post-class questionnaire (within 60 days)
Our course has been endorsed by the Scrum Alliance based on teaching you:
- How to build the engagement, motivation and productivity of your agile team.
- How to coach product owners, project managers and others for buy-in.
- Techniques to energise your sprint planning sessions and retrospectives.
- How to deal with difficult situations as a ScrumMaster.
- How to increase the creative capacity of your Scrum team.
- Strategies to help you enable change within your organisation.
We always reserve some time to delve into topics and questions that you bring along with you – so come prepared!
This A-CSM course is aimed at people already experienced with Scrum and the ScrumMaster role. To be eligible for the A-CSM accreditation, attendees must have undertaken CSM training. The class is kept small – no more than 9 people. You are encouraged to co-own and mould the agenda by bringing your own challenges, questions and areas of interest to the group to make the learning as personal as possible.
