A Team Based Training to Solidify Your Knowledge Through Practice

Professional Scrum Foundations™ (PSF) is a 2-day course that provides the foundational knowledge needed to work with Scrum in a highly practical way. The course is a combination of instruction and team based exercises where students experience how the Scrum framework improves product development efforts. The course also includes a free attempt at the globally recognized Professional Scrum Master I certification exam (PSM I).
What You Will Learn
Over the 2 days, students are introduced to the mechanics of Scrum, gaining insights into overcoming complexity, dealing with team based collaboration and self-organization as essential elements in mastering Scrum. Students work together as a team in a series of Sprints to build a software application, thereby facing real-life problems. The mechanics, roles, and principles of Scrum are leveraged during the exercises. From its emphasis on the practical application of Scrum, the course exposes common missteps and misunderstandings so students grow a higher awareness of the associated symptoms. The course provides prescriptive guidance to avoid going off track and keep Scrum healthy.

Professional Scrum Trainer, Agile Coach
An experienced Agile Coach with over 13 years of experience in IT/Software development, including 7 years in leadership and coaching roles. My experience as Director of QA became increasingly frustrating, as I found my teams responsible for only the ‘end of the line’ of large waterfall projects. This lead me to ‘discover’ agility, and I quickly worked to shed the management title, and become a full-time Scrum Master.
Since then, I’ve also played the role of Coach, Development Team Member and Product Owner at a diverse set of organizations – from bootstrapped technology start-ups to 150 year old incumbent Financial Institutions. Along the way, I’ve developed a high level of respect and empathy for both the technology and human elements of organizational transformation. I love working with teams and individuals, helping them each along the way in their agile journey.
