What does Certified ScrumMaster mean and how can I become one?

By earning this credential, everything you've learned about team work will be challenged by Agility.

As a ScrumMaster, you'll work with the Product Owner, Developers, and the Organization, ensuring the fluidity in their work by removing organizational impediments.

In your day-to-day, you will work on Sprints. Sprints are fixed periods to build and deliver Product Increments that will be inspected by the Scrum Team and Stakeholders to learn from the feedback obtained.

In the meantime, as ScrumMaster, you should be aware of the purpose, dynamics, tools, and anti-patterns of the Sprint Planning, Daily Scrum, Sprint Review, and Sprint Retrospective (we discuss everthing on the course).

You will be key in each and every one of these meetings. You will be the facilitator, responsible for overseeing the process by which the other team members will make collaborative decisions.

Your responsibilities do not end here; as CSM you should also facilitate refinement activities with a large part of the team and Stakeholders, groups of people who generally think very differently, to bring agreements and shared decisions.

Great ScrumMasters learn this new way of leading by serving the Team and knowing all about Scrum, adaptive-control models, evolutionary product development, and facilitation. Still, they also pay close attention to unlearning many leadership behaviors that become obstacles to successfully adopting Scrum.

All those learnings will come along with your ScrumMaster certification.
