Pivotal conversation

ScrumMaster as Servant Leader

The Advanced Certified ScrumMaster workshop requires previous Scrum knowledge and experience.

This is NOT a session for those who are new to Agile and Scrum.

All attendees must have the Certified ScrumMaster certification (CSM) and with practice prior to the Advanced Certified ScrumMaster (A-CSM) workshop. If you don't current have a CSM certification, please contact us for options.

Participants should be passionate in advancing as a ScrumMaster and an Agile coach, and therefore be willing to challenge their own thinking and approaches within this course.

“I have had a long and quite extensive career, with agile coaching being a big part of it. However, Evelyn really made me think deeply and widely about how I approach my work. She has a great style, no PowerPoint is a good start. Her approach to agile is in line with that. Strip back all the non essential stuff and you are left with the core of agile, the stuff that really matters. She has re-awakened many lessons I have had in the past and made them relevant to my day to day work."  

Mike Carew, from UK, our past A-CSM and CSP-SM participant

"Excellent course! Love the international feeling with participants from different continents and the learning from both A-CSM and CSP-SM! Thanks for offering it in a format that made it possible for me as a parent to a child with special needs to make my agile dreams come true without ruining my family life!"  

Jens Abrahamsson, from Sweden, our past A-CSM and CSP-SM graduate

"Evelyn has designed the programs very carefully, and each and every session was super interactive. It was really great experience to share podium with like minded and like skilled people from different parts of the world! I am very thankful to Evelyn for such wonderful course structures, and well thought of contents and exercises. I will highly recommend the programs to all scrum masters who are willing to take one more step towards the excellence."  

Sanvid Bibawanekar, from Norway, our past A-CSM, and CSP-SM graduate

"Evelyn has the ability to feel present in a room, even though it is an online course. What I found to be exceptional about her was the way she challenged us by giving us a problem to solve using only her material and our brains. I loved every second of it."  

Josip Jurisic, from Croatia, our past A-CSM, A-CSPO and CSP-SM graduate

“I really have learned so much and have enjoyed it. You are a great trainer and an inspiration. I’m so glad I chose you. Thank you so much for all the hard work you put into this course - it’s so evident how passionate you are and how much you care.

I really do feel my training with you has been the most beneficial of all my past year of scrum related study and training.”  

Claire Brown, from UK, our past A-CSM graduate
