The Scrum Master is NOT a project manager. It’s an oft-misunderstood position, but if you can wrap your head around this unusual role, you’re setting yourself up for some serious career success. The role of Scrum Master is a pivotal one in any Scrum framework, and well-trained Scrum Masters are in high demand. Join us for two days of Agile Scrum Master certification classes in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada, and learn how to become a new breed of team leader!
Contrary to popular assumption, the Scrum Master isn’t a manager. While the Scrum Master does have some control over how the project is run, he doesn’t have any authority over the team members themselves. The Scrum Master plays coach, runs interference, facilitates the work, and promotes Scrum values. The Scrum Master works as a go-between for the Product Owner and the Team Members, making sure that the project stays on track and that each member of the team has what they need to do their job correctly.
As you can see, the Scrum Master’s role calls for much more than simple management skills. It’s not a “fancy” title, but if you can learn the job well, you’ll always be in high demand. During our Agile Scrum Master certification classes in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada, we aim to educate the next generation of Certified Scrum Masters, and you have the opportunity to join us!
