Professional Scrum Foundations

The purpose of the PSF class is to introduce the participants to Scrum, give them a foundation in the mechanics, teach the Scrum values and empiricism and to have the students leave the class with enough knowledge that they can return to work and begin implementing Professional Scrum.


All participants completing the Professional Scrum Foundations course will receive a password to attempt the Professional Scrum Master I (PSM I) assessment.

You will learn

The students learn the framework by practicing the events, roles and artefact creation during a Sprint where they create a website as part of a self-organizing, cross-functional Scrum team. Students repeat Sprints so they can inspect and adapt how they use the framework to build a potentially releasable Increment.

This interaction may be as a member of the Scrum team or as a person overseeing or supporting the team. Based on this constraint, the course assumes the participant has no experience with Scrum.

Retrospect to FAIL fast and OFTEN

16 January 2016

Some teams steadily come to a state in which their retrospectives result in less and less improvements. They have been continuously improving in small steps and improved quite a bit since their start, but eventually they stopped learning. The thing is that you can learn from things you do right but you can also learn […]
