Scrum Master Academy

Agile Space is launching Scrum Master Academy Season 4!

“As we all know, there are many popular and expensive certified trainings for Scrum Masters but do they really serve the purpose?

In our Scrum Master Academy, we intentionally put very strong focus on practice. During many years being a Scrum Master, Agile Coach and Trainer, working with different organizations, identifying, mentoring and growing brilliant Scrum Masters, I collected a big amount of practices, advises, elaborated many instruments, and made some successful and unsuccessful experiments.

Graduating as a student of our Academy for Scrum Masters, you will be fully prepared and equipped with knowledge to act as a Scrum Master not in theory only, but to deal with reality, where we don’t have all needed roles, where you often face resistance and never operate in perfect circumstances.

In theory we are all good, but in practice we struggle.”

Kseniya Kobryn, Agile Space Founder
