A scrum master is the facilitator for an agile development team. Scrum is a methodology that allows a team to self-organise and make changes quickly, in accordance with agile principles. The scrum master manages the process for how information is exchanged.
When it comes to the scrum team, a scrum master acts as a coach, helping them to self-organise and work cross-functionally. They also assist with getting the team to create a high-value product by removing obstacles in their process and coaching them when help is needed.
Our two-day course addresses the principles and theory underpinning the Scrum framework and the role of the Scrum Master. This course offers a combination of instruction and team-based exercises, purposefully designed to be less IT-focused and more wide business-focused.
The training and certification are based on The Scrum Guide which was developed by Scrum creators Ken Schwaber and Jeff Sutherland. It contains the definition of Scrum, consisting of Scrum roles, events, artefacts and the rules that bind them together.
Delegates will learn the role of Scrum Master, enabling them to lead a Scrum Team and drive adoption of the Scrum framework for more effective product and solution development.
