Scrum is an agile framework for managing work, typically in software research and development teams. In Scrum, the development team works on small individual work items in timeboxed iterations called Sprints. Sprints are typically 2 to 3 weeks long. At the end of the Sprint, the team delivers a potentially releaseable product iteration.
Scrum team consists of the development team members, the Product Owner, and the Scrum Master. The Product Owner manages the teams backlog, makes sure that the most important work in the backlog is clear and known and ready for team to start. Product Owner also communicates with customers and stakeholders to make sure that the team is doing the right thing.
Scrum Master is a coaching role, a "servant-leader" role in the Scrum team. He doesnt assign, follow up or lead the work, but he coaches the team to work in an efficient and self-organized way. He also acts as a facilitator for the Scrum meetings and ceremonies.
The target for the Scrum Master training course (1 day) is for the participants to understand and learn the Scrum theory, the Scrum Master role requirements and responsibilities, as well as look at practical learnings from Contribyte. We have seen many different ways to approach Scrum Master role, and we can look at what works and what doesnt work.
