I decided to drive my career to agility, especially to Scrum Master role, because I’ve already act in IT projects where I could develop a corporative communication with directors and Stakeholders. Besides owning a large experience in technical systems support, I can understand technical needs and remove possible impediments for the Development Team could have. I aim to use my communication skills to disseminate values and practices of Scrum.
Hi Vinicius! I read books authored by Mohammed Musthafa to pass my PSM 1 and PSPO 1 certifications. His books also contain situational questions that are truly valuable.
