A-CSM® Advanced Certified Scrum Master

"Perfection is not attainable, but if we chase perfection we can catch excellence."

- Vince Lombardi

You got your CSM® a couple of years ago. Wasn’t it exciting? The class was amazing, the world seemed to be full of possibilities and you were ready to jump in and do everything!

And then life happened.

The real world struck back. You quickly hit the limits of your knowledge and capabilities. And now you face seemingly insurmountable organizational problems. Your teams seem to be going through the motions of checking the boxes in their Scrum events. Your bosses are on your back for the lack of progress. You are stressed and confused. The pressure is coming from everywhere and you may even fear you will lose your job. Oh, and on top of that you hear that “this agile thing never works.”

We've been there.

We saw similar things occurring across industries and organizations. We felt the same fear and confusion. And we heard the same, “this agile thing doesn’t work” too.

And we failed.
And failed again.
And then we succeeded.

And succeeded again in turning things around, in finding ways to tackle the problems, to introduce change, to make things better for ourselves, our teams, and the organizations.

Let us help and become a part of your life-long learning journey.

Yes, you have to have a CSM® on file to process the A-CSM®. Once the A-CSM® is processed we can then move forward with CSP-SM®. You have enough experience but you also need to update your profile with scrum alliance including your work history AND – on your job entry there is a checkbox at the bottom that says PATH TO CSP – you need to check that box and enter your scrum experience there in order for the certifications to process.

People who work diligently generally finish the individual courses in 4-6 weeks. It’s self-paced so it depends on how diligently you work. I have mentoring sessions weekly on Thursdays and Saturdays and a minimum of 4 are required to complete the course work.
