Course Overview

What is Agile Scrum Master certification?

Scrum is one of the most popular Agile frameworks for delivering projects. It offers an adaptive, iterative, fast, and a versatile framework to deliver significant value, quickly, and continuously throughout a project. The versatility of the Scrum framework allows it to support product and service development, in any sort of project, regardless of its complexity.

Projects are often impacted by constraints of time, cost, scope, quality, resources, organisational capabilities, and other limitations that make projects difficult to plan, execute, manage, and ultimately succeed. Scrum’s strength lies in its ability to use cross-functional, self-organised teams, who divide and execute their work, in short, work cycles called Sprints. The primary focus of Scrum is to deliver value, through Scrum Teams, to deliver results as early as possible. A high-performing Scrum team contributes to the success of the Scrum Master, who ensures the ultimate responsibility for steering the project in the right direction.

What is the role of a Scrum Master?

The role of Scrum Master is to act as a coach and a facilitator, to all team members involved in the implementation of agile project activities. Although the Scrum Master isn’t expected to deliver results, but they help others to have success in the Scrum application, and in achieving the goals. They are deemed an expert on the subject with theoretical, and practical skills, of Scrum implementation.
