Advanced ScrumMaster

I’ve often said that the introductory Certified ScrumMaster course isn’t enough for anyone beyond the most simple scenario of a single, co-located, cross-functional, dedicated team. It’s a start. We have needed a pathway for an advanced scrum master role.

The new Advanced Certified ScrumMaster training is the next step on deepening your skills and abilities around the most common questions and issues raised in the CSM class, such as:

  • Scaling
  • Conflict
  • Helping the Product Owner
  • Improving Team Performance
