EXIN Agile Scrum Master [ASM.EN]


The Scrum Master is responsible for ensuring Scrum is understood and enacted. Scrum Masters do this by facilitating the Scrum Team in adhering to Scrum theory, practices, and rules.

In order to do this, the Scrum Master role struggles with the apparent contradiction of the Scrum Master as both a servant-leader to the team and also someone with no authority. The Scrum Master is responsible for maximizing the throughput of the team and for assisting team members in adopting and using Scrum. A successful Scrum Master influences others, both on the team and outside it. The Scrum Master helps those outside the Scrum Team understand which interactions with the Scrum Team are helpful and which aren’t.


EXIN Agile Scrum Master is a certification that looks to confirm both skills and knowledge of the Agile framework and Scrum methodology.

Agile Scrum is about working together to successfully reach a goal. Agile methodologies are popular approaches in software development and are increasingly being used in other areas. Scrum practices include establishing cross-functional and self-managed teams, producing a working deliverable at the end of each iteration or Sprint. This certification focuses on adopting Agile or Scrum in the workplace and taking on the role of Scrum Master. Preparation Guide: EXIN Agile Scrum Master (ASM.EN) 5
