The Agile Scrum Master is a unique certification that combines an understanding of agile principles and applying scrum practices. 

The Agile Scrum Master course focuses on the role of the Scrum Master in facilitating maximum customer and business value by using Agile and Scrum. This certification is ideal for those taking a leading role in the use of, transitioning to, or adopting Agile and Scrum.

Why become a Scrum Master?

Scrum is one of the biggest sub-groups of the agile methodology. 

Scrum uses a set combination of efficiency ideas and project consolidation to help teams to craft higher-quality items in a record amount of time.

Scrum is a team-centered way of delivering complex and high-quality projects in fast-changing environments. A Scrum Master is not a project manager but a facilitative servant-leader role that helps Scrum Teams achieve awesome results!

If you love working with people and helping them maximize their strengths and minimize their weaknesses, the Scrum Master is for you!

Scrum Masters are also problem solvers and one of their jobs is to roll stones out of the way so that the team can perform optimally.

Because not many people know how to get the best out of teams, solve problems, and ensure forward momentum, Certified Scrum Masters are in high demand, and because they are in high demand, the pay is great also!

The median salary of a Scrum Master is between 10 and 35% higher than the equivalent number for a Project Manager. The median for a Scrum Master in South Africa is ZAR750k (vs ZAR670k), in the USA $94k (vs $76k), in the UK £57k (vs £49k), and in the Netherlands €107k (vs €70k) – figures from Glassdoor and Paysacle on 11/04/2022.
