Get Scrum Master Certified with Project Laneways

Project Laneways has announced the next Scrum Master Certification course will take place on April 30th. The two-day APMG-ABC Scrum Master Certification allows professionals to gain a deeper understanding of the Scrum framework and understand how to become an effective Scrum Master.

Companies around the world are adopting the agile methodology as it helps remove impediments that prevent them from responding quickly to change. The idea is to return to a values-based way of working that allows the business to change its mind and adapt, change direction, with speed and stability and with low risk and low cost.

Even MI5 recently advertised for Scrum Master positions in their investigative and analysis teams. The role requires Scrum Masters who can think on their feet when responding to issues that occur within their live operational IT systems. “Someone with strong organisational skills, bringing innovative ideas in how we implement agile methodologies into MI5,” the job advertisement said.

Australian companies are recognising that agile is a capability that they have and want to utilise it to compete in the market. By breaking traditional structures, the agile methodology is moving from a command and control model to empowering employees so they can help drive better customer outcomes.

A Scrum Master is a servant leader that listens and supports teams, encouraging them and supporting their development. They have strong planning skills - organising their own time and that of others and approach their work strategically.

Scrum Masters focus on applying the Scrum process and helping the team to communicate, coordinate, and cooperate to deliver stories and by removing impediments. They coach the team, facilitate team and program events. They remove impediments to the team's progress
and foster adoption of agile technical practices. They also coach the team on the best ways to refine their backlog and create stories.

The Project Laneways course follows the APMG-ABC course, syllabus and learning objectives are based on The Scrum Guide (The Definitive Guide to Scrum: The Rules of the Game). It helps professionals facilitate scrum events and help product owners manage the back log. The certification does not expire.
