Find out why Scrum is a total game-changer – and how you can play a part in it!
What Does it Mean to be a ScrumMaster?
The role can be a little confusing for folks coming fresh out of a traditional company environment. The ScrumMaster isn’t a “manager”, but he does have a certain influence. He doesn’t manage the team members, but he is responsible to keep the project on track. As you’ll see at our ScrumMaster certification training in Omaha, Nebraska, it can be a fine balancing act; however, we know you’ll love the rewards the role brings.
As ScrumMaster, you can expect to perform many of these tasks regularly:
- Coaching and building communication within (and between) one or more teams.
- Running regular meetings like daily stand-ups, Sprint planning meetings, etc.
- Observing your team’s needs and providing those needs when possible.
- Upholding Scrum values and keeping the team focused on working through the Scrum process.
- Removing impediments and protecting the team from unnecessary meddling.
And these are just the basic tasks every ScrumMaster will handle. There is a lot involved in being a successful ScrumMaster, but we’re here to help. Join our ScrumMaster certification training in Omaha, Nebraska, and we’ll help you to survive and thrive in this outstanding role.
