Then this Scrum study group I’m hosting might be something for you.

Guidance from an experienced Scrum Master (me).

An open and constructive learning environment, focused on your learning experience.

Constructive feedback from me as well as from your peers.

Experienced and knowledgeable peer participants.

What NOT to expect from this group

This study group is not affiliated with, Scrum Alliance, Scrum Inc or any other certification body.

You do not get a free exam when participating in this group.

I am not a professional Scrum trainer.

This group will not provide you with answers to all of your questions.

Session outline & Logistics

Each group will participate in 3 to 5 sessions, depending on the needs of the group.

In this study group we will create and publish our own Advanced Scrum Master Exam; one that reflects our learning journey. After each session we will release a new increment of our exam.

The first session will focus on the boundaries Scrum provides and how these can enhance agility. We’ll pay special attention to the use of language, the Scrum values and the principles underlying Scrum.

We’ll adapt the content of subsequent sessions to the needs of the group.

You need to prepare for each session. Expect one hour preparation time per session.

All sessions will be online. You need a decent laptop and a good internet connection to participate. We’ll use, Google Forms and Mural. All are free of charge for you, since I’ll be hosting the session from my paid accounts.

We’ll run at least one session per week.
