Japanese – Professional Scrum Master™, 1/2/2024 – 2/2/2024


Course Description

This course is taught in Japanese.

The Professional Scrum Master™ (PSM) training is a course that teaches the underlying principles, and theories of the Scrum framework and the role of the Scrum Master. It combines classroom lectures and team-based exercises to teach the core of Scrum and Agile.

Over the course of two days, you will learn effective mindsets, attitudes and techniques to become an effective Scrum Master and guide new product development teams (not only software) to improve their effectiveness.

Through the course, students are challenged to think in terms of Scrum principles, while at the same time gaining a better understanding of how to practice Scrum effectively in the field.

PSM training is more than just a lecture. During this training, students work as a team with other classmates on real-life case studies and have case-based discussions.

Who should attend?

The primary audience for this class is Scrum Masters, Team Leaders, Managers, Product Owners, Developers, or anyone interested in how Scrum Teams develop products and deliver value. Despite the name of the class, it is not only designed for Scrum Masters.

There is no requirement for any knowledge of product or software delivery prior to participating, nor any experience of being in a Scrum Team.

What is the class?

During this class, you will learn the theory behind the Scrum framework and hear experiences from our trainer about how they’ve applied the principles in practice.

The areas of focus are:

  • Empiricism – the evidence-based, decision-making theory that underpins the whole Scrum framework.
  • Scrum Values – the five core values that provide the bedrock on which successful, self-managing Scrum Teams are built.
  • Self-management – the qualities of good Scrum Teams and how they work together.
  • Scrum Team – the three accountabilities and how they work together to produce a Done increment.
  • Scrum Events – the opportunities Scrum provides to inspect and adapt, ensuring focus remains on value delivery.
  • Artifacts – the transparent articles that are inspected throughout a Sprint and adapted as needed.

We also touch upon a number of other subjects including: Done, facilitation styles, leadership styles, coaching and mentoring, forecasting and release planning, Product value, Product Backlog management, emergent software development, managing technical risk, and continuous quality.
