  • Act as a facilitator and servant leader who encourages self-organization

  • Protect the team from internal and external distractions
  • Ensure a good relationship between the product owner and the team along with the members outside the team

According to Scrum Alliance, a Certified Scrum Master course helps to increase the likelihood of a project’s overall success by applying Scrum principles and techniques. By understanding the values, practices, and applications, you can act as a ‘servant leader’ rising above and beyond an average project manager and helping your organization achieve meaningful goals.

Attended Certified ScrumMaster®(CSM) workshop in February 2018

I went for the weekend workshop. Our Instructor, Jimi Fosdick, was just amazing. His perspectives were a breath of fresh air. The contrast between seasoned IT managers/architects (who were attending the workshop) and Jimi's views really helped, as I got to know about the industry practices and SCRUM (as intended). KnowledgeHut had organized everything well, there were no problems or issues whatsoever. The early bird offer was also a solid discount. Great experience overall!

Attended Certified ScrumMaster®(CSM) workshop in February 2018

The trainer was excellent and the material was easy to follow. Instead of powerpoint slides and reading materials, real-life cases and exercises were used for scrum methodology. I highly recommend it to anyone who is interested in getting certified.
