What is a Scrum Master?
A Scrum Master is like a facilitator, the point person, that communicates between teams to ensure projects stay on track. A Scrum Master must be a good lister, strong communicator, organized, a problem solver, and work well with others. Scrum Masters don’t need a 4 year degree to be hired. Most entry level Scrum Master positions only require a certification, which can be completed in a 2 day training with an assessment.
