What is Scrum?

Scrum is the most popular form of Agile project management.

What is Agile?

Agile is an iterative approach to project management. It enables you to divide a project into time-divided sections and react promptly to change. Agile is used for projects with end results that are difficult to define, or where there is a high likelihood of changing requirements. Although Agile originated within the IT sector, there has been a rapid expansion into other industries in the last few years.

There are a number of subsets (forms) within Agile, including Crystal, Extreme Programming and Test Driven Development. However, Scrum is by far the most widely used of all the forms of Agile.

What does a Scrum Master do?

A Scrum Master's top priority is to establish and maintain a productive, effective work environment for the Scrum Team and Scrum Product Owner, so that each project can be completed successfully. They are the key enablers, overseeing application of the scrum process to the project, helping to overcome any obstacles that crop up, and protecting the team from distractions.

Every Scrum Master must have a confident and complete understanding of scrum processes. By becoming Scrum Master Certified (SMCTM), you will gain the skills you need, and achieve an internationally recognised Scrum Master certification.
