We are uncovering better ways of developing Agile Professionals. Through this work we have come to value:-

A continuous learning pathway over a one-off course
Group exploration over individual reflection
Guided navigation over a solo journey
An immersive adventure over personal surety

That is, while there is value in the items on the right, we value the items on the left more.
The Scrum Mastery Pathway™ is a new, exciting and unique way to become a great Scrum Master.

What is the Scrum Mastery Pathway™?

This is no ordinary training course. The Scrum Mastery Pathway™ provides a comprehensive development pathway for Scrum Masters delivered through three elements - Explorer, Navigator and Adventurer.

Delegates begin by ‘exploring’ all the major skills and facets of great Scrum Masters during two days of training. They are then provided access to a dedicated group chat and will attend five monthly group sessions lasting 3-hours each as they ‘navigate‘ the challenges of applying these skills in their day-to-day working life. After six months delegates will return for deeper skills transfer to set them up for their future, ongoing ‘adventures’ as a great Scrum Master.

Important Note

This program DOES NOT cover an introduction to the Scrum framework or the role of the Scrum Master. A working knowledge of Scrum and the Scrum Master role is required to attend this class. If you need an Introduction to Scrum or the role of the Scrum Master, why not start with one of our other training courses - an Introduction to Agile & Scrum, or, The Role of the Scrum Master.

So how does it all work?

Testimonials

"The Explorer workshop was an engaging training course, with open discussions, exercises and self-reflection time. I have come away wanting to adapt and incorporate some of these into my ways of working with my Scrum Team.

It was much better than typical classroom training."

Trainer Testimonial

"Robin is an excellent trainer and coach. His knowledge and expertise is un-matched but what sets him apart is the respect and compassion with which he works with others. It feels great to work with someone who can empathise with us and empower us with knowledge that helps us excel in our role as SM. Plus, there's never a session with Robin where you wouldn't learn something new and fun!" - Pragya N
