What is this course?

Utilising live video, alongside online collaboration tools, we’re able to replicate the interactive nature of our face-to-face training within a virtual environment. As such, individuals can undertake this training from their home or any other remote location.

Online Delivery Method
This online course will be delivered over 3 days between 09:30-16:30 (UK times). In addition, each delegate will receive one complimentary 1 to 1 coaching session.

Course Content
The Certified Scrum Professional® for ScrumMasters (CSP-SM®) is for practicing ScrumMasters and Agile Coaches with 2 years’ experience and those who have already attained the Scrum Alliance Advanced Certified ScrumMaster™ (A-CSM™) qualification. It is part of the Scrum Alliance’s Agile Coaching Pathway; this step in the journey is a combination of workshop, applied learning on the job and reflection.

This programme allows ScrumMasters and Agile Coaches to develop skills such as facilitation and coaching, and build knowledge to better serve Development Teams, Product Owners and the wider organisation. It focuses on developing you as an organisational change agent and will further deepen your coaching and facilitation skills.

The workshop builds on a combination of interactive exercises, practical real-life examples, and lively discussion and will equip you with the knowledge required to be a professional ScrumMaster.  However, the real learning happens through application and reflection, so after the workshop, in order to achieve the CSP-SM®, there is an applied practice and written reflection element.  Through the written reflections you will demonstrate that you meet the learning objectives for the Certified Scrum Professional®.

• Facilitating Learning
• Coaching
• Facilitation
• Serving the Team and Product Owner
• Serving the Organisation and yourself

On completion of the programme and validation with your coach that you have met the learning objectives, you will become a CSP-SM®.

Each delegate will receive one complimentary 1 to 1 coaching session; further coaching support may also help enhance the learning experience.
