A-CSM Program

You will be able to put the historical evolution of Agility into perspective and understand it beyond Scrum. As an experienced Scrum Master, you will be able to identify and communicate how this mindset gave rise to different frameworks that are now considered practically complementary.

You will learn why Scrum is designed the way it is. The purpose behind the existence of each artifact and event with respect to empirical process control. You will be able to identify not only the most typical anti-patterns but also incorporate concepts that allow you to identify those not so well-known.

You will know how to facilitate any of the Scrum meetings and add some spice to them. All Scrum Teams will be grateful to you for efficiently facilitating their meetings.

You will discover the secret behind coaching. You will also learn training techniques and be able to differentiate facilitation, coaching, and training, knowing when to use which discipline as an advanced CSM.

You will learn the typical characteristics of high-performance teams, an actionable model for their development, and the different stages they generally go through and how to act in each of them. We will explore different technical excellence practices that you must know at least to perform successfully as a Scrum Master. From this, you will know how to foster self-management in the Scrum Team and how to provide coaching to maximize their potential and effectiveness as a team.

You will learn how to support Product Owners in the effective performance of their role. You will know how to involve them in Product Backlog refinement and the creation of a compelling vision. We will also discuss the implications of the latest modifications to the Scrum Guide regarding the product and sprint goals.

You will develop a systemic view of Organizational Agility. You will learn to interpret the dynamics of an organization in terms of product development and the adaptability of the system. With your advanced knowledge as a Scrum Master, you will be able to recognize localized optimization patterns that can hinder an organization's ability to achieve greater levels of agility.

You will become aware of the aspects that make up servant leadership and conflict resolution. You will put all the topics learned into perspective and be able to evaluate your level of expertise in each of them, charting a future personal development plan that shows you the way to continuous professional improvement.

What you will learn?

Agile facilitation, training and coaching skills that expand Scrum Masters' impact.

Techniques to build and improve robust Definitions of Done (DoD), increasing the quality and transparency of the Agile delivery process.

Agile scaling frameworks' foundation and the reasons why an organization might decide not to scale.

Organizational impediments to Scrum recognition and how to decide the best way to address them as an advanced Scrum Master.

What is the Advanced Certified Scrum Master course (A-CSM) about?

If you are reading this, it is very likely that you have already completed your certification as a Scrum Master (CSM) and are facing one or more of these scenarios:

1. As Scrum Master you are pursuing a professional career in Agile Coaching and would like to take a leap by incorporating more advanced approaches and techniques.

2. You serve as a Scrum Master, and you would like your interventions to be much more assertive and memorable for your clients.

3. You want to explore deeper approaches in your practice as a Scrum Master, such as the organizational view of the A-CSM.

Whatever the case, you are in the right place to start your path to advanced CSM.

In this online Advanced Scrum Master certification (A-CSM) course, you will find comprehensive content which is kept up to date with the most modern approaches and techniques of team facilitation, coaching, scale agility, and support to Scrum Product Owners and Developers so that you can be that Scrum Master who leaves nothing to chance.

Unfortunately, many Scrum Masters do not have the opportunity to receive quality agile frameworks education and continue to manage teams based on deadlines and evaluations. They spend most of their time monitoring user stories' progress and acting as intermediaries between developers and clients with the best intentions. But unfortunately, this is an absolute waste of time and effort.

You shouldn't be one of these Scrum Masters.

With this advanced certification course you will join a group of professionals that is taking their Scrum Mastering knowledge to deeper dimensions.

Sign up for the Advanced Scrum Master (A-CSM) certification online course and take off your career with the new toolset that is waiting for you.

Testimonials

I take with me a lot of knowledge. I loved the dynamics of the course, the techniques to assimilate knowledge, and the group/collaborative meetings. A very rewarding experience!
Fernando Diaz , Sierra de La Ventana
Advanced Certified Scrum Master (CSM)
I was looking for a certification course that would allow me not just to earn a certification, but would open the door to a wide range of tools, techniques, knowledge and experiences, that would lead me beyond my comfort zone. The course met my expectations and made me go beyond what I expected...experience is not gained by reading books alone, rather by "rolling up your sleeves," and this is what I was looking for.
Mauricio Rodriguez Cascante
Advanced Certified Scrum Master (CSM)
This course allows you to delve into framework topics and provides you with a broader vision of what a Scrum Master should know. All these while being coached by Martin who is an excellent and true expert. Step by Step learning and also learning how to unlearn old biases.
Fernando Alayo Vásquez , Lima
