Course Introduction

What is Scrum Master training?

The Scrum Master training certification is suited for anyone with an experience in project management who is seeking to study the Scrum methodologies and increase and awareness of knowledge in the use of it. The Scrum Master training certification demonstrates your capability to recognise Scrum principles, practices and requests and apply this information to a direct Scrum team. Scrum masters manage the process, not the people. They are also responsible for ensuring Scrum is understood and enacted by ensuring that the Scrum Team adheres to Scrum theory, practices and rules who helps those who helps those outside the Scrum team understands which of their interactions with the Scrum team are helpful and which aren’t. The Scrum Master helps everyone change these interactions to maximize the value created by the Scrum team.

The Scrum Master is one of the most important elements of Scrum Teams success. The Scrum Master does whatever is in their power to help the team succeed in their attempt at building the product. The Scrum Master is not the manager of the team, instead, the Scrum Master serves the team, protects the team from outside interference, and guides the team’s use of Scrum. The Scrum Master makes sure everyone on the team understands and follows practices of Scrum, and they help lead the organisation through the often difficult change required to achieve success with Agile methods.

Since Scrum makes visible many impediments and threats to the team’s effectiveness, it’s important to have a strong Scrum Master working energetically to help resolve those issues, or the team will find it difficult to succeed Scrum teams should have someone dedicated full time playing the role of Scrum Master.  In case of smaller teams, the same scrum master could play that role for multiple projects.
