Scrum is a framework that helps teams and organisations achieve the best possible output from their efforts. Scrum is simple and effective, making it one of the most common and widely used agile methods for working with complex problems and projects.
The framework is simple to understand, but complicated to implement successfully if you do not have insight into the agile values and principles that lie behind it.
In this course, you learn the core of the agile mindset, and how the Scrum framework can support teams and organisations in their agile development.
The course prepares you for the official certification exam “Professional Scrum Master® I (PSM I)” from Scrum.org. With a passed exam, you are a certified Professional Scrum Master® from Scrum.org.
This course is held over 2 consecutive days.

Before the physical course, you will gain access to preparatory materials. This ensures that all participants have a similar starting point in terms of knowledge regarding the agile mindset. In that way, we ensure optimal learning for all.
We use ”Action Learning”, which consists of participatory approaches and varied teaching methods, where you experience an engaging and challenging method of learning through presentations as well as individual and group-based work.
Throughout the course, there will be cases, simulations, and training sessions that will put you as a participant in appropriate practice situations that affect your thinking, reflection, and action.
Through involvement, you will experience a dynamic and energetic teaching space where knowledge and experiences are applied as active resources in the process.
Feedback will be used to improve performance and create positive experiences to learn and find motivation to apply the new competencies in everyday life.
Through challenges in group exercises, we explore the practical implementation of the agile principles and the application of the elements in Scrum. All this is to create an understanding of how you can create an effective and high-performing Scrum team.
The course is for everyone who wants to increase their agile insight and competencies and would like to achieve an internationally recognised certification of their skills.
Whether you work with management or development, this course provides you with a better starting point for working in an agile context.
The course is relevant for new Scrum Masters who want an improved understanding and a solid agile toolbox, but also for experienced Scrum Masters who seek inspiration and wish to sharpen their competencies.
