The course

By building upon the core Scrum framework, we will help you move towards a professional and practitioner Scrum Master level, allowing you to realise more of the untapped potential of you and your team. I have drawn on all of my experience coaching teams and mentoring Scrum Masters to create a highly interactive learning experience that promises to share best practice, explore real life problems, and practical techniques to take away and apply immediately.

What you will learn

  • How to build the engagement, motivation and productivity of your agile team.
  • How to coach product owners, project managers and others for buy-in.
  • Techniques to energise your sprint planning sessions and retrospectives.
  • How to deal with difficult situations as a Scrum Master.
  • How to increase the creative capacity of your Scrum team.
  • Strategies to help you enable change within your organisation.
  • PLUS we always encourage our attendees to tailor the agenda to meet their needs.

There will be plenty of time for discussions and specific questions too.


You can claim SEUs/PDUs by attending our ACSM course which you can use towards further Scrum adventures.
