“Scrum”, the latest buzzword that is taking the software industry by storm. Though Scrum is the recent project management methodology, many organizations particularly ITS and ITES organizations are taking to Scrum in a big way.
Why is Scrum so popular?
With the increasing Agile implementation, Scrum is taking its turn too. Scrum is the powerful and popular Agile methodology which is simple, straightforward, and easy to implement.
You can refer our previous article Agile Vs. ITIL to know difference between them.
Scrum allows frequent, short iterations with continuous feedback also makes sure that the delivered end product aptly fits the customer needs. In addition, the flexibility of changing requirements in a controlled manner is possible with no extra cost and still, the project stays inline by evading the risk of destroying large chunks of previous works. Moreover, Scrum builds smart motivation by breaking down the whole work into small iterations with a number of smaller deadlines to meet.
While there are a number of other iterative and incremental development methodologies out there in the software market, Scrum is on the simple side. And, we can very well say that the Scrum focuses on achieving positive reinforcement by removing obstacles rather than pointing fingers at others.
Scrum encourages honest and open communication among teams with many other benefits, such as higher customer satisfaction, better product quality, increased productivity, reduced or stable project costs, and increased employee motivation and satisfaction. Hence, Scrum has flipped into a highly successful framework in the recent times.
Who is a Scrum Master?
Scrum has three components and they are the product owner, Scrum team and Scrum master. A scrum master is the one who makes sure that the Scrum team stay inline with Scrum Values and practices.
You can think of a basketball coach, he is the one who drives the team to play their best.
Similarly, Scrum master is the process owner of the team who drives them to perform better as well as creating a balance with the project’s key stakeholder (the product owner). Scrum master helps the team to stay focused to meet the deadlines by eliminating the obstructions that might hinder the progress.
How to become a Scrum Master?
With increased Agile practices being implemented in many organizations, Scrum Masters are in great demand. As the leader of a Scrum team, the Scrum master takes ownership of a project, provides all necessary guidance to the team as well as the product owner, and ensures all Scrum practices are correctly followed by Scrum team members.
