In the first week, there is a 90 minute training session, live, online with John McFadyen. 2 weeks later, you have a coaching and mentoring call with John where you talk about the things that you implemented at work, what worked, what didn’t work, and what needs work. So the blend of training, coaching, consulting and mentoring helps you master all elements of the Scrum Master accountability – at a foundational level – over a period of 6 months.

You can either pay the full, discounted amount upfront or you can select the subscription payment option over 6 months. Either way works for us.

Scrum is relatively easy to understand, but incredibly difficult to master in practice. The coaching calls are designed to help you explore the best approach to common challenges Scrum Masters face and provide you with expert coaching to help you overcome those challenges and transform your work environment.

A mentor is someone who has walked your path before, to an expert level, and so they are in a great position to provide you with answers, solutions, and design practices for you. A coach helps you discover the right answer, a mentor often provides you with a great answer and mentors you through it’s implementation and evolution.

Yes, that is exactly what they are designed for. A safe space for you to share some of the challenges you are facing with your team or organization, and receive coaching that helps you identify what the best, most appropriate next step would be. It isn’t about telling you what to do, it is rather an opportunity to create an environment where you can grow into the best version of a Scrum Master that you are capable of being.

The Advanced Certified Scrum Master program would be the next step. Building on the strong foundation of the beginner program, you now learn more advanced knowledge, skills and techniques and receive more advanced coaching and mentoring to help you thrive.

A Certified Scrum Trainer is someone who has demonstrated deep competence with Scrum in a technical environment. Someone who has lived and breathed Scrum values, in tough applications, and has demonstrated a successful track record with adopting, implementing, and improving with Scrum in the real world. After extensive training experience, their practitioner capabilities are augmented by their training capabilities, and verified by Scrum Alliance as a Certified Scrum Trainer.

If you complete each of the programs, from beginner to elite, you would be in the top 1% of Scrum Masters in the world. We hate to use the word ‘elite’, but in essence, you would be an elite performer in the realm of Scrum and agile coaching through the lens of Scrum.
