Key reasons to give your Scrum Masters this training:

Prerequisites and format
This training program is designed for Scrum Masters with a few years of experience in their role. It consists of half-day modules, each of which is focused on a specific area of Scrum, Agile, and the Scrum Master’s role. You select which modules best suit your environment and needs. We can also customize the training modules and exercises if that is what you need.
We typically schedule the modules 1-3 weeks apart. This allows participants to put the skills into practice immediately before returning to learn more.
