The Scrum Alliance Advanced Certified ScrumMaster® (A-CSM) is for individuals with agile experience, who have their Certified ScrumMaster® (CSM) certification, that want to expedite their journey to greater agility on the Scrum Alliance Path to CSP.
Via the CSM you were introduced to Scrum values, roles, ceremonies and artifacts. Through your life and work experience you have learned that implementing agile can be challenging. We go deeper into agile at scale, empiricism, coaching, soft-skills, XP Engineering, and Kanban.
After the session you will be registered with the Scrum Alliance. If you have more than a year of agile work experience, have the CSM Certification, and complete this session, you will achieve the A-CSM designation, and be one step away from CSP-SM.

Understand What Happens if You Can't Attend
We try to avoid cancellations, and do not cancel late due to low enrollments. If we do, we give you a discount. We expect you to be similarly respectful; so there are fees associated with cancellations to cover a portion of costs we incur, including credit card processing and catering fees.

Please review the information below to familiarize yourself with the policies.
A refund, minus a 5% credit card processing fee, will apply for all refunds irrespective of when a request is made.
An additional $75 charge will apply for a cancellation or class change that Grow-Lean receives seven (7) to fifteen (15) days prior to the scheduled event.
No refunds will be issued for a cancellation or class change that Grow-Lean receives less than seven (7) days prior to the scheduled event start date.

We try to avoid cancellations. In the unlikely event we cancel due to low registration, and if we cancel less than sixteen (16) days prior to the scheduled event start date, we will refund your money or provide you a $150 discount towards a transfer into another one of our upcoming events.
After you register we will provide instruction to prepare you for the session, including information on how to work with our team to ensure that your technology is configured for the event. If you have problems, no worries, unlike most training companies our team has over a decade of experience delivering online, and we are ready, willing and able to help you setup prior to the event.
Follow the checklist below to ensure you have what you need. Have problems; no worries, we will assist you with the technical setup and we will get with you, prior to the training, to make sure you are ready.
Worried that an online training won't be engaging? Think again, our training events have numerous interactive elements including games, exercises and group breakouts. In a breakout, you are in a virtual room with a small number (usually three to six) of other class participants. When you are breakout room, you and the other members are separated from the rest of the class.
