Scrum Master Learning Areas

The typical areas where a Scrum Master should excel are not carved in stone. However, there are a few areas where we recommend that Scrum Masters become experts. Here’s an overview of our recommended expertise levels.

People & Teams

Motivated individuals are the core enablers for mature Scrum teams. The Scrum Master helps People & Teams to continuously develop themselves and get the best out of the Scrum Framework

We recommend the Scrum Master to be an expert
in Self-organizing Teams, Facilitation, Leadership Styles, Mentoring and Coaching.

Scrum Framework

Understanding and helping others understand Scrum is a main responsibility of the Scrum Master. The Scrum Master facilitates the team, the Product Owner and the organization in creating a successful implementation of Scrum.

The Scrum Master needs to have a close collaboration with the Agile Leader, who can help to get more impact with Scrum on an organizational level.

Product Management

The Product Owner is accountable for the Product Management Learning area.

 

We recommend that the Scrum Master supports the Product Owner in his efforts to create a good Product Backlog and stakeholder collaboration.

Organization

Scrum Masters focus on supporting teams and the entire value chain of the product be effcient in their work. While the Product Owner is mostly the expert in the Portfolio Planning and building value, the Scrum Master needs a thorough understanding on how to influence the team and organization culture.

That is why we recommend Scrum Masters to be experts in Organization Design and Culture.

Product Development & Delivery

Unlike many organizations believe, the Scrum Master does not need to be the strongest technical person in the team. It is more important that Scrum Masters are capable of building teams that share the technical responsibilities.

A basic to average understanding of how to develop products helps to support team members and can make a very effective Scrum Master.

Scrum Master Learning Journey Syllabus

& frequently answered questions

This syllabus is an abbreviated guide with details on the kind of teaching and learning you can expect, as well as provide a small FAQ section.

A Learning Journey contains a number of modules.

Each module is kicked off by either a training or a workshop.

After each training\workshop you will be invited to implemented your learnings in your own, practical environment.

Each module is closed with a 1hr coaching session, aimed to guide you in your first practical learnings with the subject.

A Learning Journey can be completed within a year, provided that you invest on average, at least 4 days each month on upgrading your knowledge.

The Scrum Master Journey is designed for Scrum Masters who are responsible to lead teams, Product Owners and the organization to a mature implementation of Scrum.

If you’re a Scrum Master or coach who is responsbile to create mature Agile teams this journey will help you learn the skills and capabilities to do so. We strongly believe that you do not need Agile Coaches when Scrum Masters reach their full potential.

While there are many paths towards becoming a mature Scrum Master, the Scrum Master Journey is our recommendation to

help you develop the Leadership skills to create mature Agile teams and unleash a Culture of creativity in your organization.

Although it is not impossible to complete the Journey in a different order, we recommend to apply the order in which we designed it. This is because each module in the Journey assumes that you have knowledge on the adjective modules. It will probably take longer to complete the Journey if you use a different order.

Unlike our training classes, our Learning Journeys are guided: you will receive coaching, feedback and active guidance in working towards your personal learning objectives.

On average you will gain a monetary advantage of about 15% by attending all sessions in the Journey as compared to attending all modules and guidance separately.

Our mission is to help you develop a leadership style that stimulates, creativity, greatness and engagement. Our Leadership Journeys help you become an independent body of knowledge and skills, able to help your organization towards Agility.

From the start of the Journey you will get the opportunity to define your explicit learning goals in becoming a body of knowledge in your preferred area. We will challenge and help you in accomplishing this in an explicit way. Some examples:

  • Guiding you to become a trainer at Scrum.org or
  • Preparing a presentation for an event\seminar or
  • Helping you to develop a new training or
  • Writing a paper on a preferred subject

Each of our Journeys has a number of formal milestones built in, to assess if you have correctly absorbed the acquired knowledge. The confirmation of these milestones are performed by our renowed partners:

Note that PDU's can be claimed for attending any of our Scrum.org classes.

 

General F.A.Q.

This class will be taught by one of these trainers:

Ron Eringa

Founder of Agile Leadership School,
Interim Manager & Trainer for Scrum.org

Traditional Classes are held at a specific physical location. Participants will get the opportunity to meet the trainer and other participants face to face, but also have to make their travel and\or sleeping arrangements.


Naturally we will continue to provide these kind of classes to our Students at various locations across the world.

Live Virtual Classes have proven to be a good alternative to attending Traditional Classes:

  • They offer the same content with the same Learning Objectives
  • Assessment Result Scores for Live Virtual Classes are similar to Traditional Classes
  • Exercises are explicitly designed to be run in a Live Virtual environment. In this way we can guarantee the same level of collaboration, engagement and learning opportunities then a Traditional class.
  • They are hosted by the same trainers as the Traditional Classes
  • Due to the lack of location restrictions or travel restraints we are able to deliver classes worldwide, so there is no need for Students to leave the comfort of their home in order to participate
In order to successfully participate in our Live Virtual Classes, there are several additional requirements for our Students:
  • Students will require either a computer or a laptop with a working microphone and camera of their own to enter our Live Virtual Classrooms
  • We require all students of our Live Virtual Classes to enable both their microphone as well as their camera at all times during the class, in order to communicate as best as possible with their teacher and other students
  • To enable optimal interaction and learning experience we use the latest state of the art online collaboration tools. Before each class, participants will receive an email with detailed preparation instructions to fully participate in the Live Virtual Classes. None of the applications used require additional costs.

The (Virtual and Traditional) In House Trainings are perfectly suited to those who require a group from 8 to 12 students to attend the same class. While the content and learning objectives are exactly the same as a public class, there are more opportunities for alignment and exploring organization specific topics.

 

By booking our In House Trainings, you can save up to 44.5% on the total price.

 

When you book one of our In House Trainings, we will contact you personally to schedule the date for the training which suits you best.  We will also discuss any specific situations or cases of your organization which we can use to customize the training where possible or needed.
