The course includes advanced thinking for servant-leadership and behavioural shifts.  Throughout the course, students are challenged to think in terms of the Scrum principles to better understand what to do when returning to the workplace. The Professional Scrum Master (PSM) course is much more than just a set of slides and an instructor. In this course, students work on real-life cases with other classmates together as a team. This course is made up of discussions and hands-on exercises based upon real-life cases.
