What else you should know about Scrum and the Professional Scrum Master training
Before you decide on a Scrum Master training, we will briefly provide you with some information on the topic and take a look at the typical Scrum terms and their meaning.
Many established companies already use Scrum to successfully lead teams through processes. But there are still many misunderstandings and ignorance when it comes to working methods and background of the Scrum methodology.
What is Scrum?
Scrum has become one of the leading methods in agile project management in recent years. This procedure has established itself as a method for the agile management of projects in all industries.
Scrum is a process method in project management and, as an agile method, is based on the roles and artifacts defined by Jeff Sutherland and Ken Schwaber.
The term “Scrum” itself comes from the game of Rugby and means the “scrum” (English: scrum). Today, the term is used to describe exceptionally successful product development teams.
Scrum consists of only a few rules. These describe five activities, three artifacts and three roles that make up the essential aspects of Scrum and are described in the Scrum Guide.
…easy to understand.
…difficult to master.
SCRUM IS BASED ON THREE PILLARS
Transparency: Progress and obstacles of a project are recorded regularly and visible for all.
Review: Project results and functionalities are delivered and evaluated regularly.
Adaptation: Requirements for the product, plans and procedures are not set once and for all, but are continuously adapted in detail.
The goal is the fast and cost-effective development of high-quality products according to a formulated vision. Scrum does not reduce the complexity of the task, but structures it into smaller and less complex components, the increments.
The part of the Scrum Master
In the Scrum team there are three parts that have different functions: Product Owner, Developers and Scrum Master, who takes a central position within the Scrum team.
While the product owner works together with the customer on the deliverable of the project and the developers are entrusted with the implementation of the project, the scrum master takes on the task of a coach and a spokesman for the organization. In this way, he or she communicates the project vision as well as the agile management approach and so protects the team from external influences.
This defining of the role is different from the role of the project manager in classical methods: The Scrum Master is the contact person for the client, but has no responsibility for project management.
In a Scrum Master training, you will not only learn methodology, techniques and theory. We also teach you how you, as a good Scrum Master, motivate the team to constantly improve the way they work and their output.
