Professional Scrum Master II (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.
I’m personally excited about this course. PSM-II is a mind changer and is what’s needed for the world to get to the next level. I am excited for how much I will learn by teaching this course and for the immense impact it will have on improving the profession of software delivery.
