Scrum.org Professional Scrum Master II - Boston - July 2019 - Guaranteed to Run
An Advanced Scrum Master Class Professional Scrum Master II™ (PSM II) course is a 2-day advanced Scrum Master class designed to support Scrum Masters in their professional development. The PSM II class is intended for Scrum Masters with at least one year of experience who are looking to grow their knowledge and abilities as a Scrum Master. This course is one step in that journey. The course also includes a free attempt at the globally recognized Professional Scrum Master II (PSM II) certification exam. This PSM II class at the Scrum.org Boston HQ in Burlington, MA is presented by Yuval Yeret, PST at AgileSparks and is Guaranteed to Run. Unlike the Professional Scrum Master (PSM) course which focuses on how to use Scrum, the Scrum framework and the role of the Scrum Master, PSM II is an advanced course helping students to understand the stances that characterize an effective Scrum Master and servant-leader while diving deep into how they serve the Scrum Team, Product Owner, and organization. The class then teaches students about related practices and skills to enable them to have the right types of conversations and how to apply them to become better Scrum Masters. IS THIS PSM II TRAINING FOR ME? The Professional Scrum Master II course is an advanced course specifically designed for experienced Scrum Masters who have a thorough understanding of the Scrum framework. It is particularly beneficial for those people with at least one year of Scrum Master experience. TELL ME MORE. WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT? Over the 2 days, students will learn about areas critical to growing as a successful Scrum Master such as how the principles and values of Scrum help guide Scrum Masters in the decisions they make and how the Scrum Master can help change the environment of Scrum Teams, creating an environment for agility to thrive. The Scrum Master role is complex and often, a Scrum Master must be able to apply different stances in order to be effective, such as: The Scrum Master as a Teacher The Scrum Master as a Coach & Mentor The Scrum Master as a Facilitator The Scrum Master as a Change Agent As a Scrum Master, being able to identify, and effectively apply, which stance would benefit your team the most depending on the situation or circumstance could prove to be the key to the success of your team. As a Scrum Master, part of your role is to help management and other stakeholders across your organization understand the benefits of Scrum and Agile. Therefore, it is imperative that you have the information and background that is needed to gain credibility in order to be an effective change agent. Throughout the class, your PST will provide stories, exercises, facilitation techniques (such as “Liberating Structures”), resources and more. There will also be time in class for the Professional Scrum Trainer (PST) to provide coaching on challenges that you and your classmates may be experiencing today or may in the future. WHAT WILL I GET OUT OF THIS COURSE? What practices, tools, skills and stances make an effective Scrum Master How the Scrum principles and values help guide Scrum Masters in the decisions they make How the Scrum Master acts as a servant-leader and improve their ability in this role What the Scrum Master can do to support Development Teams and Product Owners to become more effective Ways that the Scrum Master can help to change the environment making it more conducive for Scrum Teams to be successful with greater agility Provide tips and techniques for the Scrum Master to work with the rest of the organization in support of their Scrum Teams ASSESSMENT AND CERTIFICATION All participants completing the Professional Scrum Master II course will receive a password to attempt the Professional Scrum Master II (PSM II) assessment and are also entitled to a 40% discount on the PSM III assessment. These industry-recognized PSM certifications require a minimum passing score. WHY SCRUM.ORG TRAINING AND CERTIFICATION? Scrum.org is run by the co-creator of Scrum, Ken Schwaber. He also maintains the Scrum Guide. The organization is run by folks who eat, sleep and breathe Scrum and it shows in the carefully crafted curriculum and examinations. It ain’t easy. Your Scrum.org certification will hold more credibility with employers because you don’t receive it automatically after taking a course. You must pass the certification exam. Your PSM training gives you an excellent shot at achieving certification. Scrum.org’s courseware is uniform and rigorously updated and fine-tuned to ensure every participant receives valuable and actionable training from Professional Scrum Trainers. To be clear, uniform doesn’t mean boring! It means quality!

Conflict Management Training in Burlington, MA on July 23rd 2019
Course Description: Disagreements, differences of opinion and conflicting perspectives on key issues inevitably arise in any context where people are working together. Research has shown that workplace conflicts can become highly destructive. Negative emotions may be stirred up, poisoning team morale, creating stress and destroying relationships. Conflict may emerge between managers and their staff, between team members or departments. Conflict may be expressed openly, but it may also be hidden, in the form of irritation, resentment, loss of morale and lack of commitment. Hidden conflict is easy to miss and therefore can be particularly damaging. Ultimately, this is likely to have an adverse effect on team and company performance, costing time and money. It is therefore vital to manage conflict constructively. As an team member and leader, your ability to deal with and resolve conflicts defines your success in the longer term. Our one day workshop in Conflict Management and Communication Skills immerses you in the most advanced conflict management tools, strategies and practices applicable today. You will gain hands on practice on proven frameworks, go through simulations and exercises that will train you to be highly effective professional and leader, starting day one.
