The advanced Professional Scrum Master II class is the cutting-edge course to deepen your understanding of the accountability of the Scrum Master as intended and designed in the Scrum framework. It is the class for awesome Scrum Masters and for anyone aspiring to grasp the nature and implementation of servant-leadership.
A professional Scrum Master offers various ‘services’ to the peer roles within the Scrum Team (team of Developers, Product Owner) and to the organization (stakeholders and -ultimately- anyone beyond the Scrum Team who wants to know more about Scrum). The advanced Professional Scrum Master II class introduces not just the type of services that are offered by a professional Scrum Master, but also tools and approaches to deliver these different services. The advanced Professional Scrum Master II class thus goes to the essence of the role of Scrum Master in the sense of being accountable to support and facilitate an eco-system with a focus on product delivery with Scrum, and to work, coach and facilitate people, teams and the wider organization.
The advanced Professional Scrum Master II class is an interactive experience in which Gunther Verheyen, independent Scrum Caretaker and Scrum practitioner since 2003, collaboratively explores with you what mastering the Scrum Master role entangles, thereby drawing on nearly two decades of practical experience. All materials used in the class are in line with the 2020 version of the Scrum Guide.

What to expect in an online setting?
Our online workshops and classes are very much case-driven with plenty of room for interaction and conversation. We keep them as low-tech as possible:
- We will connect on Zoom and use Zoom break-out rooms for discussions in teams.
- We will use Google Jamboard in a virtual team space on Google drive.
- The workshop facilitator might occasionally use a PowerPoint slide deck and a physical flip chart.
