Our remote Certified Scrum Professional ScrumMaster (CSP-SM) training class is a learning experience for Advanced Certified ScrumMasters who already have at least two-years experience and need to take a further step in learning, scaling, facilitating and coaching, in order to become true experts. The CSP-SM program is the last step in the Scrum Alliance Path to CSP program and it is designed to build on your previous knowledge and experience and further enhance your skills in the service of the Team, the Product Owner and the whole organization.

The class is presented in a highly interactive and collaborative format with elements of lecture, classroom discussion, exercises, games and simulations, smoothly blended throughout the class. We will approach the class at a sustainable pace and endeavour to take breaks often, to allow our brain to stay focused and our body to recharge when necessary.

Upon completion of the class, students who have at least 2 years experience as a Scrum Master will be eligible to become a Certified Scrum Professional ScrumMaster (CSP-SM).

Training Topics:

  • Lean Thinking
  • Facilitation and Graphic Facilitation
  • The Scrum Master as a Coach
  • The Scrum Master as a trainer
  • Coaching the Product Owner
  • Team Development Models
  • Improving Team Effectiveness
  • Starting new Scrum Teams
  • Organizational Development
  • Scaling Scrum
  • Your way to Scrum Mastery

Who should attend

The CSP-SM course is appropriate for Advanced Certified ScrumMasters with at least 2 years experience as a Scrum Master. This is the perfect opportunity to develop into a true expert in the principles and practices of Scrum within an Agile team or organization, whilst completing your journey towards becoming a Certified Scrum Professional.

You can still attend the class if you are short of your required experience. You will only receive certification after the full 2 years is completed.

Your virtual environment:

In order to ensure a collaborative, engaging and fun environment even virtually, we are going to use a number of digital platforms.

  • We will use Zoom as a video conferencing platform. You can access Zoom through your browser or download the desktop application. We recommend you access through a PC/laptop with a webcam and mic or headphones.
  • We will use Slack as an additional messaging channel. You will get an invitation to our class Slack channel. If you do not have a Slack account, please go to https://slack.com and create one using the same mail address you used to register to the training. If you already have a Slack account with another email address and you want to use that one, let us know.
  • We will use Miro https://miro.com as an online whiteboard for digital collaboration. You will soon also get an invite to access the platform. The access is included in the training fee you paid, so it will be free of charge for the 4 days of the training.

You will receive further information and specific instructions before the training.

"I can honestly say this was hands down the best training class I have ever attended. You guys do an amazing job facilitating and keeping people interested. I am so excited to use the new tools in my toolbox for my sprint planning on Monday, and easily passed the CSM test with the knowledge I obtained in your class."
-- Stephanie C., Project Manager

"Eleven months later, what has stuck with me the most is that the training provided an expansive tool belt of techniques and concepts. I feel I can draw on the tool belt any time I need."
-- Mitchell F., Program Management Consultant

"The training reinforced for me the paradigm shift from the waterfall approach in a monolithic organization to Agile’s concept of servant leadership. Yes, I’m leading the team, but I’m here to enable your success."
