Advanced Scrum Master
Scrum is deceptively simple: it can be taught in two days. Truly mastering Scrum requires a lot more practice. This one-day training teaches you to coach Scrum teams to reach their full potential, even in challenging environments. The training allows students to cherry-pick up to five topics from our Scrum Master Academy for in-depth coverage during the day. Part of the training is reserved to discuss open topics determined by the students at the start of the day. Taught in Dutch or English.
Through this training I am able to take my Scrum Master role to a higher level.
