Course Synopsis

Please note that this course has been retired and is no longer available. Please see the RETIRED page for courses currently available in this subject area. Scrum.org has designed the Professional Scrum Master (PSM) program to have the utmost rigor. The program's courses, assessments, and certifications give participants the knowledge they need to use Scrum effectively and the credentials they need to communicate this ability in the marketplace. The Professional Scrum Master course is the first significant update of the Certified ScrumMaster (CSM) course that Ken Schwaber first created in 2002. This course covers Scrum basics, including the framework, mechanics, and roles of Scrum. But it also teaches how to use Scrum to optimize value, productivity, and the total cost of ownership of software products. Students learn through instruction and team-based exercises, and they are challenged to think on their feet to better understand what to do when they return to their workplaces. Scrum.org maintains a defined curriculum for the Professional Scrum Master courses and selects only the most qualified instructors to deliver them. Each instructor brings his or her individual experiences and areas of expertise to bear, but all students learn the same core course content. This improves their ability to pass the Professional Scrum Master assessments and apply Scrum in their workplaces.
