Scrum Master Certified (SMC™) professionals are facilitators who ensure that the Scrum Team is provided with an environment conducive to completing the project successfully. The Scrum Master guides, facilitates, and teaches Scrum practices to everyone involved in the project; clears impediments for the team; and, ensure that Scrum processes are being followed. Successful candidates will be awarded the Scrum Master Certified (SMC™) certification by SCRUMstudy after passing the certification exam.
This certification is most suited for project managers or team leaders working in a traditional (e.g. PRINCE2) environment, that want to transition to the role of Scrum Master in an environment where traditional project management and agile (Scrum) are combined or will be implemented.
There is no formal prerequisite for this certification. However, it is preferable to complete the Scrum Developer Certified (SDC™) certification before applying for the Scrum Master certification. It is also highly recommended to attend the 2-day SMC™ classroom training provided by Prosource (SCRUMstudy Authorized Training Partner).
