Desc: This is a 2 day, in-depth lecture style class. Attendees will earn their Scrum.org Professional Scrum Master Certification. This class is a joint effort between CODE Training and Improving Enterprises.
This class is the Scrum.org Professional Scrum Master (PSM) certification course. This is the first significant update of the Certified ScrumMaster (CSM) course that Ken Schwaber introduced and shared in 2002. As in the original, the framework, mechanics, and roles of Scrum are covered. The course then goes further by teaching students how to use Scrum to optimize value, productivity, and total cost of ownership of systems and products. Students will learn through instruction and team-based exercises, and will be challenged to think on their feet to better understand what to do when they return to their workplaces.
The instructor for this class will be Don McGreal, Director of Learning Solutions at Improving Enterprises., is PSM I, PSM II and PSMT certified. As a consultant and Scrum.org Professional Scrum Master II, he has fulfilled many roles while ensuring that the clients get the most from each engagement: developer, business analyst, and agile coach.

- Have read one of the Scrum books.
- Have studied the Scrum Guide at www.scrum.org
- Understand the basics of project management
- Understand requirements and requirements decomposition.
- Have been on or closely involved with a project that builds or enhances a product.
- Want to know more about how Scrum works, how to use it, and how to implement it in an organization.
- Scrum Basics – What is Scrum and how has it evolved?
- Scrum Theory – Why does Scrum work and what are its core principles? How are the Scrum principles different from those of more traditional software development approaches, and what is the impact?
- Scrum Framework and Meetings – How Scrum theory is implemented using time- boxes, roles, rules, and artifacts. How can these be used most effectively and how can they fall apart?
- Scrum and Change – Scrum is different: what does this mean to my project and my organization? How do I best adopt Scrum given the change that is expected?
- Scrum and Total Cost of Ownership – A system isn’t just developed, it is also sustained, maintained and enhanced. How is the Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) of our systems or products measured and optimized?
- Scrum Teams – Scrum Teams are self-organizing and cross-functional; this is different from traditional development groups. How do we start with Scrum teams and how do we ensure their success?
- Scrum Planning – Plan a project and estimate its cost and completion date.
- Predictability, Risk Management, and Reporting – Scrum is empirical. How can predictions be made, risk be controlled, and progress be tracked using Scrum.
- Scaling Scrum – Scrum works great with one team. It also works better than anything else for projects or product releases that involve hundreds or thousands of globally dispersed team members. How is scaling best accomplished using Scrum?
