The course delivery approach is unique. It is not based on cookie cutter approach you may find elsewhere. The end to end process, right from the first contact you make to find out about the course, all through to delivery, and post delivery of the course is user friendly..”

What You Will Learn on the CSP-SM course?

Participants will take a more in-depth look at the difference between a good Scrum Master and a great one, including the tools and practices they will need to help increase their teams’ agility and responsiveness.

Through the Certified Scrum Professional Scrum Master™ workshop you will learn to:

  • How to facilitate dialogue among the Product Owner, team members, customers, stakeholders, and executives
  • How to respond confidently when encountering resistance to change, lack of engagement, low motivation, and unavailability of key people
  • How to help your company adopt Scrum and support executives committed to agile values
  • How to remove impediments that prevent long-term, deep adoption of Scrum and agile methodologies by all parts of the business
  • How to explain the value of the agile Scrum framework and processes to sceptics
  • How to increase developer engagement to encourage greater accountability, commitment, and buy-in
  • How to leverage your learning to gain recognition and status as the agile expert in your company

Who should attend the CSP-SM training?

This course is designed for the Scrum Master who has the desire to grow their skill set and become more confident in the concepts and techniques necessary to progress their career.

For those looking to differentiate themselves from the pack, CSP-SM certification arms Scrum Masters with new skills, and also an industry-recognised distinction from other Scrum Masters. Agile coaches, consultants, program and project managers, facilitators, and technical leaders can all benefit tremendously by building on their A-CSM certification with the CSP-SM.

Everyone is welcome to take this course, and there are zero restrictions on registering for the class. However, to receive your CSP-SM certification from Scrum Alliance students must have an active A-CSM certification and satisfy the following requirements:

  • Complete the CSP-SM course, delivered by a Path to CSP Educator
  • Demonstrate at least 24-months of demonstrated Scrum Master experience by uploading your role-specific expertise to your Scrum Alliance Profile

What you will get on the CSP-SM Course?

How is the online training different to the in-person course?

The course structure and content itself is very similar. The Learning Outcomes are the same, as is the Certification. Being a live delivery, we include many more breaks. We have also amended the in-person course with exercises more appropriate and effective for an online/remote experience. Watch the short video below with trainer Karim Harbott to find out more about our live, online training.
