What is this course?

The Advanced Certified ScrumMaster™ (A-CSM™) course is part of the Scrum Alliances Path to Certified Scrum Professional®.  This step in the ScrumMaster journey is a combination of workshop, applied learning on the job and reflective learning as part of online group coaching sessions.

This programme is aimed at practicing ScrumMasters. Growing skills such as facilitation and coaching, and building knowledge to better serve Development Teams, Product Owners and the wider organisation.  This programmes focus is on growing ScrumMasters as team coaches and change agents.

The two day 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 an effective ScrumMaster.  However real learning happens through application and reflection, so after the workshop in order to achieve the A-CSM™ there is the applied practice and reflection element.  There are two ways to complete the reflection:

Carol Kitchingman
