How does Scrum work?
Based on Agile principles, it enables teams to self-organise by encouraging close collaboration between all team members and the specialisms involved. Scrum challenges the assumptions of the sequential approach to product development and replaces it with an iterative process. It includes a set of meetings, tools, and roles that work in harmony to help teams structure and manage their work. The goal of this approach is to timely capture changes in customers’ needs, along with any other unpredictable challenges that may occur — for which a sequential approach is not suited. As such, Scrum uses an evidencebased framework that embraces the fact that problems cannot be fully defined upfront. Instead, it focuses on maximising the team’s ability to respond to emerging requirements, deliver value quickly, and adapt to new market conditions.
Why is it important to hold a Scrum certification?

Whether the candidate is a Scrum beginner or a seasoned professional, a certification a significant advantage when aiming to motivate and lead teammates. The PeopleCert Scrum Master credential showcases that the candidate has the skills necessary to lead an agile team successfully.
