Professional Scrum Master (PSM) - English

"Informatief en superleuk aangekleed door Michel. Hij zorgde voor een goede sfeer en had slimme maniertjes om basis Scrum concepten uit te leggen. Je wist nooit echt wat het doel van een oefening was tot je er mee klaar was, dat vond ik wel clever gedaan en werkte goed voor mij. Wel weinig ruimte voor discussie over de toepasbaarheid in de realiteit. De theorie is leuk, maar kan niet werken in de praktijk als het zo rigide toegepast wordt. Kan me voorstellen dat dat echt bij de PSM I hoort, in tegenstelling tot II of III. Scrum theorie in ieder geval sterk uitgelegd." - 18-02-2024 12:31

Learn Scrum from those who created and maintain It

Professional Scrum Master (PSM) is a 2-day course that covers the principles and (empirical) process theory underpinning the Scrum framework, and the role of the Scrum Master in it. This course is a combination of instruction and team-based exercises, and teaches what is at the heart of the Scrum and Agile movement.

What you will learn

Over the 2 days, students will see why PSM is the cutting-edge course for effective Scrum Masters and for anyone coaching a team toward increased efficiency and effectiveness. The course includes advanced thinking for servant-leadership and behavioral shifts.

Throughout the course, students are challenged to think in terms of the Scrum principles to better understand what to do when returning to the workplace.

The PSM course is much more than just a set of slides and an instructor. In this course, students work on real-life cases with other classmates together as a team. This course is made up of discussions and hands-on exercises based upon real-life cases.

PSM course topics

  • Scrum theory and principles
  • The Scrum Framework
  • The Definition of Done
  • Running a Scrum project
  • Working with people and teams
  • Scrum in your organization
  • The role of the Scrum Master

Who should attend

The Professional Scrum Master course is for anyone involved in product delivery using the Scrum framework. It is particularly beneficial for those people within an organization accountable for getting the most out of Scrum, including Scrum Masters, Scrum Team members, and managers.

Professional Scrum Master certification

All participants completing the Professional Scrum Master course will receive a password to attempt the Professional Scrum Master I (PSM I) assessment. PSM class participants who attempt the PSM I assessment within 14 days of receiving their free password and do not score at least 85% will be granted a 2nd attempt at no additional cost.

What my former students say

“The course was given in an extremely professional way both on the material that was taught, the way it was taught and time management. All Scrum principles were explained in a very clear way using multiple examples from the daily routine of a Scrum Master. Matthijs was very knowledgeable in the agile world in general and in the Scrum world in particular and although I already practiced Scrum for a few years as a Scrum Master, the amount of knowledge I gained in those few days is priceless. Furthermore, Matthijs is a great person who teaches the material in a very positive and friendly environment which gave me as a student lots of motivation to explore more in the agile world.”
Moti Geva – Director Project Management at Comscore

"Matthijs was engaged to provide Scrum Master and Product Owner training for Dutch Central Bank where my role was Senior Agile Coach. Matthijs demonstrated a high level of flexibility and creativity and was able to engage the attendees by running the training like an agile project. A lot of very colourful posters were giving the training a distinct “Matthijs” flavour. Matthijs has a lot of real-life experience and knows in depth where the real challenges in agile adoption exist. Matthijs provided excellent demonstrations and cases for the training. We were solving real problems and dealing with day-to-day issues. That made the training really “stick” with the audience."
Davorka Ruskac – Senior Agile Coach

Your trainer: Matthijs de Booij

My mission: inspiring others to discover new ways of working. Over the years, I have provided 100+ training courses and workshops in the fields of Scrum, Agile Product Development, Kanban, and personal leadership. I have advised and coached 15+ different organizations within various industries like banking, healthcare, and retail. Before becoming an external consultant, coach, and trainer, I have been 5+ years part of different Scrum Teams as a Development Team member, Product Owner, and Scrum Master.

As a Professional Scrum Trainer and Accredited Kanban Trainer, I am trusted by the creators of Scrum and the Kanban Method to create the best possible foundation you can build upon in practice. As a by-product of your learning you will increase the chance of becoming certified.

My training courses are characterized by minimizing use of Powerpoint slides, and maximizing iterative and incremental creation of visualizations on flip charts. These visualizations will help you recollect the lessons learned through the exercises we did, the conversations we had, and the reflections throughout the training course.

I believe that the best way to deliver a training course is by applying the values and principles from Scrum and the Agile Manifesto on the training course itself. I practice what I preach.

Small class sizes

My training courses have a maximum of 10 students. This has the following benefits for you:

  • A more personal experience for you as a student
  • Contributes to an environment of trust and openness
  • Easier for everyone to feel comfortable
  • More space to bring in your own challenges from your workplace
  • More space to learn from the experience of the other students

"The course was well structured and accompanied with lots of colourful visuals on flip charts, which for me - as a very visual person - was great!
The order of topics was clear and there was enough diversion to keep focused. (no long "monologues" to listen to).
What I missed a bit were more practical examples to connect the theory with practical situations.
Overall a very pleasant experience and Michel certainly knows what he is doing as a trainer! :)" - 17-04-2023 09:55
