The industry leading Advanced – Certified ScruMaster® (A-CSM®) course, delivered by Stuart Turner.
Agility isn’t just something you know, or only something you can do. Agility is Holistic. It’s what you become, as the Agile Manifesto states, ‘by doing it and helping others do it’. It’s ongoing; a lifelong journey. Incorporating Scrum values and Agile principles into your world of work takes diligence, patience, and a commitment to seek continual improvement.
The basic theory stuff was excellent, but what really stood out as the practical understanding of what it takes to embed these principles in an organisation. Answered questions brilliantly, truly inspirational and I’ve already taken learnings forward to help improve my team.

Stuart Turner is the originator of the unique, fun and highly informative (and much copied) Scrum simulation. One of very few courses that uses a simulation early on, intentionally giving everyone a fidelitous experience of using Scrum and a shared context on which to build. The ordering of events in the course is deliberate, knowing experiential learning permits the deeper lessons and discoveries of the remainder of the course to be better understood, integrated and retained.
We’ll experience how using the Scrum framework helps us discover more about our product, team and environment, and how we’re working using the principles of transparency, inspection, and adaptation. Based on what we discover we’ll adapt our product and working practices in the pursuit of improving outcomes.
Further UNIQUE Benefits…
Learn from Stuart’s experiences producing products for 30 years, his wealth of insights and stories improving his own organisations, small startups, all the way to dozens of major corporations and organisations, around the world.
Full membership of the Scrum Alliance is included in the course fee.
