BECOMING A GREAT SCRUMMASTER

You are a ScrumMaster or aspiring ScrumMaster who wants to unleash your teams in this new Agile world! You know what The Scrum Guide says and you’ve been overseeing the team’s events and updating their Scrum board. But surely there must be more to it? How do you facilitate the team’s growth through their events? How do you coach them to self organization and reach high-performance? What about Agile processes? And where does project management fit in?

Becoming a Great ScrumMaster is an interactive, virtual course. Zoom in from the office, home or wherever you are. The 6-month program consists of weekly 2-hour interactive sessions hosted by experienced practitioners who have helped many aspiring ScrumMasters reach their potential. In each class you will learn and practice skills and tools in a safe setting and receive impact feedback. You will then apply these new learnings and techniques with your teams between sessions in the real world. Professional coaches will guide you through your journey through individual coaching.

Go from Good to Great.
