What is Scrum?

Scrum is the most popular form of Agile project management.

It is a team-based, flexible approach to managing projects that require frequent value-delivery and fast response to changing requirements.

What does a Scrum Master do?

A Scrum Master's top priority is to establish and maintain a productive, effective work environment for the Scrum Team and Scrum Product Owner, so that each project can be completed successfully. They are the key enablers, overseeing application of the scrum process to the project, helping to overcome any obstacles that crop up, and protecting the team from distractions.

Every Scrum Master must have a confident and complete understanding of scrum processes. By becoming Scrum Master Certified (SMCTM), you will gain the skills you need, and achieve an internationally recognised Scrum Master certification.

Why Choose Scrum Master Certified (SMCTM) Training?

The Scrum Master Certified (SMCTM) certificate is awarded by SCRUMstudy®, an established global provider of Scrum and Agile certifications. This certification is based on the comprehensive Scrum Body of Knowledge (SBOKTM) Guide.
