Scrum Masters


The Agile methodology is an iterative approach to project management in software development and other fields. Scrum is the most-popular framework within the Agile methodology. It is a “lightweight framework that helps people, teams, and organizations generate value through adaptive solutions for complex problems,” according to the Scrum Guide: The Definitive Guide to Scrum-The Rules of the Game, which was written by Ken Schwaber and Jeff Sutherland—the co-developers of Scrum. A good way to understand Agile and its various frameworks is to think of Agile as “ice cream” and its frameworks as “flavors.” All of the frameworks are forms of Agile, but have different qualities and features. Scrum masters teach, train, and inspire Scrum teams. Scrum masters also may be known as iteration managers and Scrum team coaches.
