As your company makes the shift into the fantastic Scrum framework, one of your biggest decisions will be to choose one or more Scrum Masters. Many folks instantly ask, “Why do I need a Scrum Master?” It’s a good question, because every company already has a corporate structure with managers aplenty. It can seem almost unnecessary to train or hire someone specifically for the job.
What you might not realize though, is that the Scrum Master is one of the most pivotal roles of Scrum. This unique role is one of the key things that makes Scrum so very effective. Whether you choose to attend our Agile Scrum Master certification training in Columbus, Ohio, or you send some of your managers to get certified, we know you’ll very quickly see the true worth of a well-trained Scrum Master.
A Scrum Master isn’t “just a manager”, or some other traditional role with a new “fancy” title. In fact, it’s a mistake to think of the Scrum Master in the context of other managerial or leadership roles. The very uniqueness of the Scrum Master’s role is what makes it effective. During our Agile Scrum Master certification training in Columbus, Ohio, you’ll begin to see a glimpse of how a Scrum Master works and why the job is so important.
Of course, a unique role like this requires a certain type of person to fill the position. Not everyone can make the switch from traditional management to the role of Scrum Master; however, here are a few key qualities that you can keep an eye out for as you choose a Scrum Master for your project:
1. Progressive – Good Scrum Masters make noise. They don’t settle for the status quo. Instead, they’re constantly looking for ways to improve.
2. Observant – Good ScrumMasters notice the team’s needs and look for ways to meet them promptly and efficiently.
3. Team-Focused – Good ScrumMasters focus on building collaborative, cohesive teams that communicate well and know how to get things done.
