We offer a variety of Scrum Training courses (including assessments and certifications), as well as focused workshops on various agile topics, facilitated events, and team building exercises. 


Scrum Training

Professional Scrum Foundations

The Professional Scrum Foundations (PSF) course is a 2-day course that teaches Scrum in a highly practical way. Working in a series of Sprints, teams of students build a software application, thereby facing real-life problems. The mechanics, roles, principles and (empirical) process of Scrum are demonstrated. Common missteps and misunderstandings are discussed so students grow a higher awareness of their symptoms. PSF is excellent training for teams and anyone wanting to experience the Scrum way of working.

Professional Scrum Master

The Professional Scrum Master (PSM) course is THE cutting-edge course for effective Scrum Masters and anyone supporting a software development team's efficiency and effectiveness. Students learn through instruction and team-based exercises, and are challenged to think in terms of the Scrum principles to better understand what to do when they return to their workplaces.

 

Professional Scrum Product Owner

The Professional Scrum Product Owner (PSPO) is an advanced course for Product Owners, Agile product managers, and anyone responsible for a software product’s success. The 2-day PSPO course teaches how to maximize the value of software products and systems, the ultimate way to be successful in turbulent markets. Students develop and solidify this understanding through instruction and team-based exercises. 

 

Professional Scrum Developer

The Professional Scrum Developer (PSD) course is a 3-or-5-day course that teaches how to create great software using the Scrum framework. Working in a series of Sprints, teams of students collaborate, apply modern engineering practices, and use the Scrum framework to develop increments of potentially releasable functionality.
