On March 14th and 15th Scrum.org had organized a get together for their trainers. On the agenda were several topics. The most prominent was to start updating the existing PSM material. Scrum.org added two new trainings. PSTM (Professional Scrum Team Member) and PSPO (Professional Scrum Product Owner). The PSTM is the fundamental training, teaching the basics of Scrum; no prerequisites are required. Whereas the PSPO covers the Product Owner site of Scrum. Those additions are making it worthwhile to look into the existing PSM content and to see what can be removed and what should be updated. On the other hand it was long overdue to meet the other trainers in person.
Needles to say that these were two intense days of ongoing discussions and creation of new ideas. When great minds think alike it is amazing what the outcomes are. Overall, it has been very energizing.
Since the complete PSM material is rather large we weren't able to complete it. Now, our colleagues will pick up our work at the next trainer gathering in
and carry on the baton. Hopefully they will not only carry but also inspect our work and improve it. Brussels
So stay tuned for an improved PSM training - a training even going deeper and addressing the more challenging problems of today’s Scrum Masters.
Thanks to my fellow trainers at Scrum.org, I feel honored to call you my friends and to be part of this.
