Grow agility and get closer to your Certified Scrum Professional CSM (CSP-CSM) with this advanced session
You are a Certified Scrum Master® (CSM), from the Scrum Alliance, and you have real world experience applying agile.You want to take it to the next step, take the Advanced Certified ScrumMaster.
Via the CSM you were introduced to Scrum values, roles, ceremonies and artifacts. Through your life and work experience you have learned that making agile work effectively is not easy. This session will expedite your journey to true agility.
We briefly review the basics, then go deeper into agile at scale, empiricism, coaching (active listening, facilitating, powerful questions, handling impediments, root cause analysis, open space, introspection), Extreme Programming (XP) Engineering while also exploring the Product Owner role in detail so you can better support them.
After the session you will be registered with the Scrum Alliance. You will need to enter information about your work experience. If you have more than one 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.
If you are coming up on your two year renewal from your CSM, you will also save yourself a $100 renewal fee and accrue 14 to 16 of the SEUs you need to keep your certifications active.
Don't waste your money or get scammed, choose a reputable, approved, training provider

Popular agile certs recently made the move to virtual, but many of our trainers have 10 to 15 years experience delivering online education. Choose proven experience. Read recent reviews below, or click here for a longer list of testimonials (video and written) for online events.
I didn't know what to expect because I had never before taken an online class. At no point did I feel disengaged or feel that I was in a virtual class. David Bulkin is a fantastic instructor, offering guidance and helpful hints, while agilely managing the chats. The course content was clear, concise, and comprehensible. The class was set up so that I was able to learn a lot in a short period of time. It provided information that was useful in the context as to how I will be using it. After taking this class, I now have a better understanding of Agile and Scrum methodologies. This class more than met my expectations and is the reason why, I believe, I scored a 98% on the exam on my first attempt. I look forward to taking additional courses offered by Grow-Lean and hopefully with this instructor.
The instructor's enthusiasm and mixture of anecdotal and theory based teaching.
I enjoyed David's examples from his real-world experience and that he referred to class members to talk about specific applications of Agile that they've seen. The group was able to learn about applications of Scrum through each other's experience and see shades of different practices for unique needs at different companies. We also could learn about what others disliked, giving us something to think about as aspiring facilitators or eventual Scrum Masters.
The session was perfect, not boring, at a good pace, with good content, good discussion, and the application of and chance to share and evaluate real world experiences. This is the second course that I have taken with David Bulkin. He is a terrific instructor and the reason that I have and will continue to choose GL over the competition. Please continue to develop your process and offerings.
David's real world experience and the ability to discuss and share on attendee experience and help them understand how it applies to their workplace. Unlike other trainers who will focus on the theory, David provides real world examples and examples affecting himself and shares it with the class. Class engagement is top-tier, and people leave with a brightened sense of knowledge for Scrum.
David Bulkin is an effective Scrum Trainer. He understands that new material is not immediately registered in the brain and so he repeats and asks questions in different ways just to get us thinking. I appreciate his methods. He is also energetic. The course materials were useful and I am of the impression that he gauges his sessions based on the experience of his audience which is good. I plan to do the A-CSM with him. Also, leading up to the session, attendees received loads of pre-class material such as test quizzes and other material to help understand Scrum. These were very valuable to me.
David knowledge and way of explaining and involving people. All practice exercises were very thoughtful and informative. I was able to fill lots of gaps in my understanding.
David's training went beyond simply teaching us how to pass the certification exam. Using practical examples, breakout sessions, and a highly engaging teaching style, he helped us understand the "why" behind using Scrum. Many people get lost in the "how" and end up with a gutted implementation of the Agile methodology. Having completing this training, I'm much better positioned to encourage a lasting, effective implementation of Scrum in our organization.
I found that having a trainer with tons of experience very valuable. He has trained over 425 times and you can tell he has perfected the way he trains in order to impact us as trainees giving us a better opportunity to retain the knowledge. He was very inclusive and had everyone involved. He was intentional in how he spoke and delivered the knowledge in class in order to keep us all engaged.
Talking about real world examples that match the topic, and the simulated PI.
I really enjoyed the interactive, fun, hands-on virtual learning session with instructor, Donald Patti. Don has a wealth of knowledge and provided real world examples and activities to help solidify the course content. I would recommend the course to anyone wanting this certification. Don, thank you for being an excellent trainer!
I learnt so much from this course. Very interesting, fun, educational and hands on. The instructor definitely has a passion for teaching this course and it shows through his teaching style. I thoroughly enjoyed it!
I liked how the instructor gave real world examples to help connect the information. I think he was thoughtful and well versed and felt confident in his ability to teach.
The open communication and learning. Real world scenarios and exercises. Loved our break out sessions that we were able to work together with our fellow team members.
I found the sessions to be very interesting and interactive. The instructor gave "real life" examples that I could understand contextually. The class material also provided helpful context which the instructor was able to build upon.
