What is the process of certification?
Here at ScrumMastered we provide training from Scrum.org to help you obtain Professional Scrum certificates such as PSM I, PSM II, PAL I.
You can pass the assessment at Scrum.org website on your own by paying directly for it. You do not have to attend training to do so.
However, we always recommend attending a class. It not only allows you to get ready to the exam, but to also review common misconceptions and see Scrum in practice through case studies and exercises.
Will I get any certification on completion on course?
After attending a class, you will get up to two free attempts at the relevant Professional Scrum assessment with Scrum.org
You can take the exam at any point in time after the class – there is no expiration date.
What will I accomplish after attending a class?
There are multiple benefits to attending Professional Scrum classes.
The content of the class is curated by Scrum.org. It’s high quality, interactive, and 100% aligned with Scrum. So you can be sure to learn what Scrum really is based on approved material.
The class is also an opportunity to ask your trainer some specific questions and get help real-time. There are plenty of opportunities to discuss various situations and the implementation of Scrum in your organization.
During the class we will also go through a variety of group exercises where you will learn the practical aspect of Scrum, not just theory. You will see multiple real-life examples and discuss approaches that can work. This is something that you can take away with you after the class and implement in your team or organization.
In addition to the Scrum framework, we cover some other important Agile topics that can help you not just to learn the basics, but go a bit deeper into topics of leadership, teamwork, and change management.
Is the Scrum Master also a Project Manager?
Scrum Master is a very different role from Project Manager. It requires different skills and traits to succeed. Most of the daily Scrum Master tasks are very different from what a Project Manager does every day. This is why training is an important piece in your career development, if you consider becoming a Scrum Master.
If you would like to learn more about what a Scrum Master does all day, download the free whitepaper Action Plan for Scrum Masters where I go over examples of daily tasks.
What is the role of an Agile Coach?
In many organizations, Agile Coach is considered a step up from the Scrum Master role. However, as per Scrum, a great Scrum Master does what an Agile Coach would do anyway.
The goal of agile coaching is to help the whole organization successfully navigate Agile transformation. It’s not only working with a single Scrum Team, but rather working with leadership and overall organizational structure.
It often involves ongoing training and process optimization. The success would also depend on the implementation of Scrum/Agile-friendly culture that requires many changes in values, principles, and behaviors of employees of every level.
