Scrum was first created to aid in the process of software development. Today, the framework is being utilized for project management in all spheres of industry. If your company is preparing to adopt the Scrum framework, one of the best things you can do is to attend our Scrum Master certification classes in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. We’ll help you to prepare for the shift, and put you in line for fast-track career success as a qualified, educated Scrum Master.
It’s an odd question, but it will help you to determine what role you play in your company’s Scrum framework. Not everyone is cut out to be a Scrum Master – and not everyone should be. There are pigs, there are chickens, and there are Scrum Masters. It sounds a little crazy, but if you know the old joke, it makes a lot of sense:
A pig and a chicken decided to open a restaurant together. The chicken suggests calling their venture “Ham and Eggs.” “Nope,” says the pig, “with a name like that, I’d be committed, while you’d only be involved.”
The “chickens” in the Scrum scenario have an interest in the project and they provide feedback, but they aren’t responsible for the success or failure of the venture. The “pigs” are the ones building or managing the project. During our Scrum Master certification classes in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, you’ll learn how the “pigs” and “chickens” work together to achieve success.
Ultimately, the Scrum Master fits into the role of “pig”. He’s fully invested in the project, but he’s a facilitator. He oversees the project, helps set the rules of the project, and provides a buffer between the team and the “chickens”. It’s a unique role, often referred to as “servant leadership”, and it requires a special sort of skill and training.
We’re focused on educating highly trained, highly successful Scrum Masters, and by participating in our Scrum Master certification classes in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, you can be one of this new breed of leader.
