Why become a Professional Scrum Master?Whether you’re new to Agile or have worked as a Scrum Master for years, a Professional Scrum Master accreditation can be a big asset. It provides an objective overview of Scrum Master best practice so you can learn how it should be applied. With practical and theoretical learning, combined with group discussions, you’ll gain a hands on understanding of how to apply techniques and why they matter. You’ll get insight into what makes a successful Scrum Master. You’ll also learn about the tools and tips you can rely on to improve your effectiveness and output. Can’t I just learn on the job? Of course you can! But, you’ll be learning within the confines of an established company. So, you’ll adopt many of the company’s practices and ways of working, rather than an objective approach. You may also pick up bad habits from other Scrum Masters in the business. A Professional Scrum Master accreditation is a great addition to your CV. In the competitive world of recruitment, yours may be the CV that stands out against those candidates who have no certification to their name.
