As Scrum Master, it is your task to ensure that scrum works efficiently. You are a Servant Leader, and support both your scrum team and the entire company in implementing scrum. You assist developers in getting organized, and engage in high quality work that fulfills user expectations. It is also your task to dispel any obstacles – of a professional, structural or personal nature – and ensure a positive, productive mindset. Not least, you help the Product Owner to find suitable methods in order to develop the definitions required by him or her. In addition, you can, and should, based on your position, promote the cooperation between all parties involved and the stakeholders, in a beneficial manner.
All these different tasks require a wealth of knowledge and skills from the Scrum Master. Scrum Master training helps you to lay the foundation for your career, and purposefully prepare yourself for the PSM1 certification awarded by scrum.org.
Further along your career path, the PSM2 qualification awarded by scrum.org is of great value. This qualification enables you to broaden your competence, and learn more about dealing with complex obstacles. In addition, you will learn advanced collaboration techniques, and acquire an in-depth understanding of various perspectives on scrum, within and outside your team.
Further advantageous qualifications in this field include Scrum with Kanban (PSK) and Scrum with Nexus (SPS). Kanban helps you and your team to constantly improve the throughput of work and efficiency. Nexus, on the other hand, is especially interesting if you wish to link a number of scrum teams with one another and purposefully coordinate them.
