This programme is aimed at practicing ScrumMasters, allowing them to grow skills such as facilitation and coaching, and build knowledge to better serve Development Teams, Product Owners and the wider organisation. It focuses on growing ScrumMasters as organisational change agents and will further deepen their coaching and facilitation skills.The 2 day workshop build 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.
