Scrum Master

Monday July 18th and Tuesday July 19th I attended Srum Master Training.

Going in I was excited at the opportunity to learn more about Scrum and to become a better Scrum Master which is on of three roles in the Scrum process. I just recently took on this role part time. Although I have been doing scrum for for 5 years, I have always been part of the team role.

At the training I learned a lot. I enjoyed the mini games and group activities we did to help show how agile ideas can help improve managing change and unknowns. I also like how it broke down all the roles and responsibilities. I like the ideas of self organizing teams, and that the traditional conflict project manager face are separated by the scrum triangle.

Yesterday I finally took the scrum master certification exam, and passed with flying colors. I only got one question wrong. So yes it is official I am certifiable!

All in all it was a great time and now the next challenge is improving our process where I work.
