Scrum is an agile product development framework that is focused on helping teams to produce successful products that genuinely meet the needs of their customers. While originally used for the development of software based products, Scrum can be and has been used for non-software projects, including for change management.
Scrum supports the introduction of lean and agile principles, with the goal of embracing change, improving quality and maximising return on investment.When used for a software development project, Scrum is most effective when accompanied by agile development practices such as test driven development and continuous integration.
The ScrumMaster has a key role in Scrum. The role is different to that of a project manager, for example the ScrumMaster has no responsibility for planning and controlling projects. Instead, the ScrumMaster
supports and encourages the team’s self-organisation and the success of projects by optimising the collaboration between the product owner and development team.
Participants who complete the course and take and pass an online test are awarded the title “Certified ScrumMaster”.
