Improving Enterprises is offering the 2-day Scrum.org Professional Scrum Master (PSM) certification course. This is the first significant update of the Certified ScrumMaster (CSM) course that Ken Schwaber introduced and shared in 2002. As in the original, the framework, mechanics, and roles of Scrum are covered. The course then goes further by teaching how to use Scrum to optimize value and productivity. Students will learn through instruction and team-based exercises, and will be challenged to think on their feet to better understand what to do when they return to their workplaces.
May 16th and 17th 8:30am - 4:30pm
