Scrum Master Training and Certification


Scrum Master Training and Certification

PeopleCert Scrum Master I is aimed towards any professional who wishes to become an efficient member of a Scrum environment. 

 Working together

 Scrum is an agile framework that helps teams work together to develop, deliver and manage complex software products. It increases team productivity by encouraging team players to learn through experiences, to self-organize and to continuously improve output. 

IT teams use Scrum to develop, deliver, and maintain complex software products. However, Scrum principles can be applied to all kinds of areas including research, sales, marketing, and customer support, amongst others. 

 

How does Scrum work?

 

Scrum uses an evidence-based framework that maximizes the team's ability to respond to emerging requirements, deliver value quickly and adapt to new market conditions.

The goal of this approach is to understand and respond to customer needs in a timely manner and manage any other unpredictable challenge that may occur for which a sequential approach is not suitable.
