SAFe® Scrum Master Certification - Career Path

SSM Career Path & Future Scope 

Scrum Masters keep on moving --from good to great Scrum Masters, by accepting several challenging roles in SAFe implementing organizations. Let’s see what other career roles a Scrum Master plays in the enterprise.  

Scrum Masters who have been successful in various contexts of Scrum can choose to move to the role of Mentors. Scrum Masters who want to become Mentors don’t require extra effort as they are already well-versed in Coaching and mentoring skills. Due to this, the Mentor role is also called an Agile Coach role.

Some Scrum Masters after getting into the role of Scrum Master realize that they like the product which is being built and not the process of creating it. Such Scrum Masters are good candidates for Product Ownership. Some Scrum Masters, having worked with the teams on product development for a long time, grasp sufficient knowledge to become good Product owners.  

In Agile and Scrum, Scrum Masters are not managers. But, due to the nature of the roles and responsibilities of Scrum Masters, they get time to work closely with Managers and they find the Manager role intriguing. They are required to manage the Scrum process rather than the people.
