The Professional Scrum Master II course is an advanced course specifically designed for experienced Scrum Masters who have a thorough understanding of the Scrum Framework. It is particularly beneficial for those people with at least one year of Scrum Master experience.
Over two 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 in order to be effective, such as:
As a Scrum Master, part of your role is to help management and other stakeholders across your organization understand the benefits of Scrum and Agile. Therefore, it is imperative that you have the information and background that is needed to gain credibility in order to be an effective change agent. Throughout the class, your Professional Scrum Trainers will provide stories, exercises, facilitation techniques (such as “Liberating Structures”), resources and more.
There will also be time in class for the Professional Scrum Trainer (PST) to provide coaching on challenges that you and your classmates may be experiencing today or may in the future.
The training is divided into different modules. Of course we will inspect and adapt based on your questions and experiences. The training consists of:
To maximize your learning experience, we advise you to read the Scrum Guide (at least once) and write down your questions and remarks. You can also take the free online Open Scrum assessment on the Scrum.org website.
After the training, you will have access to the classroom page which will have a lot of material to be able to review and read more in-depth information.
Additionally, you will receive an invite to the Scrum Facilitators Slack community where you can ask other professionals for help and also receive discounts for products and other courses.
After the training, you will receive an assessment code from Scrum.org support to take the PSM II assessment. There is no expiration date on this assessment code. However, when you take your first attempt within two weeks after the training and do not pass the 85% marker, you will automatically receive a new code to do a second attempt.
