Pre-course Reading: A-CSM

This 2-days workshop is part of the advanced Great ScrumMaster Academy program so you are expected to spend significant time to prepare yourself before the class, where we validate your learning and practice situations from the ScrumMaster journey. Certification is an optional part of this program and in order to get certified you have to: 

  1. Demonstrate your knowledge/skills/experience as described in the Learning Objectives and get them validated by the trainer during the class.
  2. Demonstrate at least 12-months of ScrumMaster experience by uploading your role-specific experience to your Scrum Alliance Profile (any time after the class).

Some topics may be well known and internal part of your day-to-day work, some others may be new or bring a different perspective. Join the class with an open mind, the ways of learning are unexpected. 

Note that, an important part of the class is trainer learning validation. In case of gaps, you get feedback so you can inspect and adapt on that part and demonstrate your learning. If the gaps are too big to inspect and adapt in two days, it may end up with some recommended follow-up learning/coaching followed by trainer validation. However this is a possibility, it is not expected to happen too often and most of the active ScrumMasters will make it if they do the class preparation well

Please spend time to read through given concepts and reflect on them. You are encouraged to join local meetups and work on specific learning objectives with a group of Agile enthusiasts there.

The questions in italic shall help you to cross-check your understanding.
