Through this coaching-based program, individuals will work to satisfy the Learning Objectives (LOs) outlined by the Scrum Alliance. Using a Scrum like approach individuals will use the LOs as a backlog, progressing through them at their own pace with an emphasis on developing validated competence in the related skills. Graduates of the program will be submitted to the Scrum Alliance to be recognised as Certified Scrum Professional - ScrumMaster. This coaching-based program uses a competency-based model, whereby individuals will develop and demonstrate competency across the approximately 50 Learning Objectives the Scrum Alliance has identified for the Certified Scrum Professional - ScrumMaster. Using the LOs as a product backlog the learner will work with the coach to establish the order in which they will complete the LOs and the acceptance criteria that will be used to validate that the LOs have been satisfied. Unlike classroom-based training that can only provide exposure to concepts, this coaching-based program focuses on developing competence in the LOs over time in a real-world context, with goals, learning, validation, and reflection resulting in genuine capability.
