The ScrumMaster is an oft-misunderstood role. It’s a role that is completely unique to Scrum, so many folks can’t quite wrap their heads around it; however, the ScrumMaster is a very large part of what makes Scrum so successful.
You can’t think about the ScrumMaster in the context of other roles you’ve been in. Comparing the ScrumMaster to project managers or functional managers will just confuse you. During our ScrumMaster certification training in Saint Louis, Missouri, you’ll quite quickly see how very different the role is – and why it’s so vital to team success.
The ScrumMaster’s job is to focus on the long-term success and health of the team and the project. To do that, they must focus on upholding Scrum values and practices. They must coach and protect each member of the team. They must act as a buffer against outside demands and changes. It’s a big job, and it’s one that requires a considerable investment of time, energy and focus.
There are three key factors to success as a ScrumMaster:
1. Focused Team Management – Your team needs to know that you are committed to the project and to each member of the team.
2. Knowing Scrum Intimately – A huge part of your job is to know Scrum well and to keep your team committed to the principles.
3. Ongoing Education – Don’t stop with certification. There’s always more to learn, and one of the best ways to learn is by attending events like our ScrumMaster certification training in Saint Louis, Missouri and collaborating with others in your field.
