Tired of being treated like a Scrum administrator?

Ok this isn’t project management. At least as a PM you made decisions. Now it’s booking meetings, taking notes, and keeping the work-tracking tool updated. There’s more to you and this framework and you’re ready to prove it.

Show your mastery with Scrum

Enhance your ability to deal with the detractors and those who just want to play the devil’s advocate. Help organizations evaluate different scaling approaches. Build trust with your team and be seen as an effective collaborator. Bring in better ways to organize and manage product backlogs.

And get ready to have fun

This course relies on your participation. The focus is on the participants learning from each other and the two days are packed with activities.
