The course


By building upon the core Scrum framework, we will help you move towards a professional and practitioner ScrumMaster 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 ScrumMasters 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 ScrumMaster.
  • 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.


The delegate

To be eligible for the A-CSM accreditation, attendees must have undertaken CSM training or have the equivalent knowledge. The class is kept small – no more than 16 people. You are encouraged to co-own and mould the agenda by bringing your own challenges, questions and areas of interest to the group to make the learning as personal as possible.

Prior to the course there will be a nutritious breakfast for all participants starting at 8.30am on both days.
