PROFESSIONAL SCRUM FOUNDATIONS
The Scrum.org mission is to improve the Profession of Software Development.
As part of our mission, Scrum.org provides the highest quality Scrum training, including the most advanced training materials and certified Professional Scrum Trainers (PSTs) to deliver it. The curriculum and courseware are highly-tuned and standardized.
Training materials are created and maintained by Scrum co-creator Ken Schwaber with the Scrum.org PST community, helping to ensure that they are always in tune with what’s happening in software development organizations and always up-to-date with the latest practices.
Courses are provided around the world. Our PSTs can work with you to plan a private course to meet your organization’s specific needs. For globally distributed organizations, our PSTs work together to provide training for your staff wherever they reside, ensuring that they are all learning the same thing. Consistent training is critical for large scale efforts where many teams are working together on the same products.
Our trainers bring their own style and experience to courses, but all trainers use the same materials around the world so that students are learning from the same content regardless of where the course is taught and who is teaching it.
Students are challenged to act in terms of Scrum. They take home an increased understanding of how to collaborate better and work as a team in a context of Scrum.
All participants completing the Professional Scrum Foundations course will receive a password to attempt the PSM I assessment. The industry-recognized PSM certification requires a minimum passing score on this rigorous assessment.

The 2-day Professional Scrum Foundations course provides the foundational knowledge needed to work with Scrum in a highly practical way. The course is a combination of instruction and team-based exercises where students experience how the Scrum framework improves product development efforts. Over the 2 days, students are introduced to the mechanics of Scrum, gaining insights into overcoming complexity, dealing with team- based collaboration and self-organization as essential elements in mastering Scrum. Students work together as a team in a series of Sprints to build a software application, thereby facing real-life problems. The mechanics, roles, and principles of Scrum are leveraged during the exercises. From its emphasis on the practical application of Scrum, the course exposes common missteps and misunderstandings so students grow a higher awareness of the associated symptoms. The course provides prescriptive guidance to avoid going off track and keep Scrum healthy.
The Professional Scrum Foundations course is the perfect introduction, reboot or refresher to Scrum. This course is for teams or anyone wanting to experience the Scrum way of working. PSF provides the base knowledge needed for anyone interested in taking role- focused trainings.
