Ready, Steady, Go! 7 Reasons to Become a Scrum Master

Scrum makes sense for your projects, your team, your business right?

It’s a flexible way to manage projects, breaking them into chunks and delivering value consistently throughout the project lifecycle.

For those working within project teams that take on projects subject to changing requirements, Scrum project management is a no-brainer.

Can you take the broad concept of Scrum and run with it? Can you get by with a little online reading, or do you need to get trained and certified? Is training really necessary?

Well of course we’re going to say yes, but rather than just giving you a biased answer from a training organisation, we have provided 7 solid reasons why it makes sense to complete your Scrum Master Certification this year …

1. The Scrum Framework needs your Attention

Like all brilliant philosophies, the concept of agile is remarkably simple. (Agile is the overall philosophy of which Scrum is the most popular framework for implementation. You can learn more about this here.)

Although the concept is elegantly simple, you must fully understand the principles involved and learn how to utilise the processes that comprise the Scrum Framework to be able to apply it with any consistent level of success.

Understanding That Roles Run Scrum Projects

2. Know that Roles run Scrum Projects

The Scrum Team and its clearly defined roles and responsibilities are the key to running Scrum project management efficiently.

Within the Scrum Team, the Scrum Master is the lynchpin that enables everything else to work well. A good Scrum Master supports the rest of the team and creates an environment conducive to working with scrum processes.

3. You Need Confidence to get Scrum Right

Would you feel confident to handle the full cycle of a Scrum project based on a little reading and research? Don’t get us wrong, we read and write a lot of Scrum and Agile articles - they are extremely useful for new and experienced Scrum Masters.

However, they cannot replace the confidence you gain from attending an intensive training workshop and receiving feedback and guidance from an experienced Scrum trainer.

Scrum Enhances Traditional Project Management

4. Scrum Enhances Traditional Project Management

If you’re experienced with traditional project management methods, Scrum can be a great way to enhance what you already know and do.

You can combine Scrum with elements of traditional project management, or take ideas, processes or aspects of Scrum that you feel will make your current methods more effective.

5. Certification = Credibility

As with all project management methodologies, achieving an internationally recognised certification informs potential clients or employers that you understand the methods in question and are capable of correct implementation.

It also equips you with a widely recognised skill-set and understanding of Scrum terminology that will help you to work with different types and sizes of projects, in varied working environments.

Getting on the Scrum ladder in 2019 is a wise choice for anyone seeking to keep their project management skills current and relevant. Can’t decide between Scrum or Agile training? Here’s some guidance...
