Dave West (@davidjwest) joined Ryan Ripley (@ryanripley) to discuss scrum.org’s new offering:  PSM-II – An Advanced Scrum Master Course. [featured-image single_newwindow=”false”]Dave West CEO of Scrum.org[/featured-image] Dave is the CEO/product owner at Scrum.org. He is a frequent speaker and widely published author of articles and his acclaimed book, Head First Object-Oriented Analysis and Design.

Dave managed the software delivery practice at Forrester research where he was VP and research director.

Professional Scrum Master II (PSM II) is an advanced course helping students to understand the stances that characterize an effective Scrum Master and servant-leader while diving deep into how they serve the Scrum Team, Product Owner, and organization. The class then teaches students about related practices and skills to enable them to have the right types of conversations and how to apply them to become better Scrum Masters. I’m personally excited about this course. PSM-II is a mind changer and is what’s needed for the world to get to the next level. I am excited for how much I will learn by teaching this course and for the immense impact it will have on improving the profession of software delivery.

Dweck, Ph.D., discovered a simple but groundbreaking idea: the power of mindset. In this brilliant book, she shows how success in school, work, sports, the arts, and almost every area of human endeavor can be dramatically influenced by how we think about our talents and abilities. People with a fixed mindset—those who believe that abilities are fixed—are less likely to flourish than those with a growth mindset—those who believe that abilities can be developed. Mindset reveals how great parents, teachers, managers, and athletes can put this idea to use to foster outstanding accomplishment.
