Agile Scrum Master Certification

Part of the Agile portfolio: Agile Scrum Foundation, Agile Scrum Master, Agile Product Owner and Agile Project Management

Agile Scrum Master course description

The EXIN Agile Scrum Master is a unique certification that combines agile principles and scrum practices with practical assignments. It tests the competences required to facilitate, coach and enable a cross-functional team as a Scrum Master.

The Scrum Master is responsible for ensuring Scrum is understood and enacted. Scrum Masters do this by facilitating the Scrum Team in adhering to Scrum theory, practices, and rules. In order to do this, the Scrum Master role struggles with the apparent contradiction of the Scrum Master as both a servant-leader to the team and also someone with no authority. The Scrum Master is responsible for maximizing the throughput of the team and for assisting team members in adopting and using Scrum. A successful Scrum Master influences others, both on the team and outside it. The Scrum Master helps those outside the Scrum Team understand which interactions with the Scrum Team are helpful and which are not.

Agile Scrum is about working together to successfully reach a goal. Agile methodologies are popular approaches in software development and are increasingly being used in other areas. Scrum practices include establishing cross-functional and self-managed teams, producing a working deliverable at the end of each iteration or Sprint. This certification focuses on adopting Agile or Scrum in the workplace and taking on the role of Scrum Master.

We incorporate the Scrum Foundation course as part of the 3 day Agile Scrum Master course.

Target Audience

The Agile way of thinking is best known in the field of software development, but the principles are increasingly being applied in other types of projects. Scrum is the most used Agile methodology and is suitable for all professionals looking to keep their knowledge up to date with the latest developments in the fields of IT and Project Management, particularly those leading or participating in projects. In particular, the certification is suitable for professionals working in an Agile context and who have the ambition to facilitate a Scrum Team by assuming the role of a Scrum Master.

Scrum Foundation is required for attending this course. We incorporate the Scrum Foundation course as part of the 3 day Agile Scrum Master course.
