Level Up Your Scrum Skills.
This is the second part of the Professional Scrum Master (PSM) qualification, and it’s designed to raise you to a level of total Scrum mastery.
You’ll deepen your existing knowledge of the Scrum framework and Agile working practices, and, most importantly, learn how to get your team working in a completely Agile way
You’ll also be equipped with all the skills you need to teach Agile to others and to support your organisation with Agile practices, no matter what role or position you’re in.
The demand for agile skills is rapidly rising across all sectors. A recent survey revealed that 79% of global executives rated Agile working practices as a high priority.
Scrum is recognised as the best framework for implementing and managing Agile working, with Scrum Agile skills highly valued in the workplace. So, if you want to boost your career trajectory by gaining Agile skills, gaining Scrum Master certification is one of the best ways to do it.
As a report in the Harvard Business Review expressed it:
“What if a company could achieve positive returns with 50% more of its new-product introductions? What if marketing programs could generate 40% more customer inquiries? What if human resources could recruit 60% more of its highest-priority targets? What if twice as many workers were emotionally engaged in their jobs? Agile has brought these levels of improvement to IT. The opportunity in other parts of the company is substantial.”
All the evidence shows that introducing Agile working practices to any team, in any industry (not just IT), improves their efficiency, collaboration and productivity.
Projects undertaken by Scrum teams are 28% more successful than others (source: PwC).
With results like this, it’s no wonder that companies around the world, both big and small, are sitting up and taking notice.
