Scrum Master Academy

Welcome to the Scrum Master Academy. The Scrum Master Academy provides all the practical tips, knowledge, experience and tools you need to perform effectively as a Scrum Master. Theoretical Scrum knowledge is not always enough. You know what to do but may struggle with knowing exactly how to do it. The Scrum Master Academy covers all the real-world essentials you need to optimize Scrum and excel in this vital role. Taught in Dutch or English by our excellent Professional Scrum Trainers, Evelien Roos and Jesse Houwing, you'll gain valuable insight from their many years of combined field experience.

For the five-month training period, you’ll play an active role in a consistent Scrum master cohort of 12 participants (max), learning and practicing together as a group one training day each month. This is your opportunity to reflect, ask questions and share real-life cases in a safe, encouraging environment. In between the training days, you’ll apply your new skills and complete homework assignments. During the entire five-month training period and beyond, your trainers will be available to answer your questions. Together, you'll learn how to put theory into practice, using Scrum to get better at Scrum, in the training and daily on the job.
