It seems that nearly every company is looking for qualified Scrum Masters these days. Unfortunately, it’s simply not enough to hand the title of “Scrum Master” to the first manager or warm body that happens by. In fact, it’s not even enough to hire someone with “Certified Scrum Master” on their resume. If you really hope to see the full rewards of the Scrum framework, it’s vital that you choose (or train) a great Scrum Master.
But don’t worry! That’s what we’re here for! You probably already have a highly qualified person within your organization, and with two days of training at our Agile Scrum Master certification training in Orlando, Florida, they’ll be ready to hit the ground running.
Of course, the very uniqueness of the role calls for a special sort of person to fill the position. Not everyone is cut out for the role of Scrum Master, so don’t be surprised if it takes a little time to find the right person. And remember, while managers might seem like a natural fit, more often than not, the best Scrum Masters come from within the ranks of your development team.
Qualities and Skills of a Great Scrum Master
The role of Scrum Master is all about servant-leadership, so as you choose the best folks to attend our Agile Scrum Master certification training in Orlando, Florida, look for candidates who put a premium on service. Some good indicators of this quality include:
- Good team-working skills.
- Satisfaction in helping other members of the team succeed.
- Good teaching skills.
