Scrum Master Certified (SMC™) is certification in agile management. Scrum is a flexible management tool that can be adapted to many disciplines, cultures and industries. The flexible management approach is the basis for working in an agile way, where the focus is on delivering the most value to the project customer (internal and external). Everything in the Scrum framework is based on Best Practice. This means that the method has emerged through numerous analyses of how to optimise work processes in project teams. The whole Scrum framework has proven itself long ago. It is the most widely used method for agile project management and production management worldwide. Scrum is particularly suitable for projects where unpredictability is high, where product specifications and requirements change continuously. This is particularly relevant in the context of digitisation projects. Here, new technology and changing business conditions have an impact on decisions and strategies.
The Scrum Master must ensure that all Scrum processes are followed. In addition, the Scrum Master guides, facilitates and teaches the Scrum team participants. In practice, the Scrum Master is responsible for everyone involved in the project. The Scrum Master removes obstacles for the team, which hinders the team’s ability to work effectively and with focus.
