The Scrum Framework provides a lightweight yet powerful approach to developing great products. Scrum Masters are the people who help teams and organisations increase their effectiveness within the framework. In the Professional Scrum Master course you'll learn how to launch, lead, and develop agile delivery teams using Scrum.
This four half-day course is a combination of instruction and team based exercises. It has been designed to challenge how you to think in terms of the Scrum principles, develop a deeper appreciation of product development with Scrum, and learn how you, as a PSM, can help self-organising teams perform at their best. You'll also learn advanced tools for servant-leadership relating to behavioural shifts, working with people and teams, coaching and facilitation techniques, and addressing the organisation.
There are no prerequisites for attending this course, however to get the most from the course we recommend reading the Scrum Guide and completing the Scrum Open Assessment prior to attending.

The PSM course from Elabor8 was truly a game changer for my career. I would like to thank Lachlan the trainer that facilitated the training. The training is not your ordinary textbook lecturing kind of training, but it was packed with a lot of encouragement in various aspects such as active engagement with participants, sharing knowledge, challenges, and creative ways of overcoming them. I also do deeply appreciate that Lachlan spends time to listen to your specific challenges and provide pointers and encouragement on how to possibly overcome those challenges. With some of the key take away I was able to progress well in my career moving from a scrum master role now to a senior scrum master role. Highly recommended that you engage Elabor8!

The PSM course run by Elabor8 was excellent. A great cross-section of participants from different industries and a really engaging facilitation style by Erwin Van Der Koogh and the Elabor8 team. I was able to validate my practical experience throughout the 2 days but also picked up so much more knowledge and practical advice on the application of Scrum in the workplace. I would highly recommend the course to others who are looking to develop in or move into Scrum Master roles and wanting to prepare themselves well for their PSM certification.

Elabor8’s training courses are an excellent balance between theory and practice – providing a solid understanding of Scrum with a strong focus on how it applies in the real world, with practical examples and discussions around specific scenarios. One benefit was the new insights, tools and language that were useful the next day in the office and continue to be today. Highly recommended.

I enjoyed the fact that the course was not focused on memorising slides of information, but rather relevant discussion. Our trainer was great at relating course content back to real-life examples from his previous industry experience in other large financial institutions. The course not only taught us about Agile (Scrum), but also how the role of the Scrum Master works together with the rest of the team. We learnt about the change in mind-set that organisations like NAB will require to fully adopt Agile.
