Emerging Scrum Master

I have 2-3 years of experience working in a scrum team 5 years ago as project manager and scrum master in a large organization. Later I had to relocate for personal reason and joined another large organization following waterfall methodology.

I missed working in agile environment. I am good at resolving team or organizational impediments, creating/managing processes and building winning teams.

I completed PSM1 recently and looking for an opportunity to start my career as Scrum Master.

I need to update my knowledge with the current Agile/Scrum techniques to win the opportunity in this competitive world so I can continue my career in Agile organization and advance my knowledge by working experience.

I am not sure what are the courses I need to complete and how to move forward. Could you please advise?

Thank you!

Hi Meena,

I recommend talking to a few recruiting companies in your area - let them know your experience and what you're looking for. They will be able to help guide you in what your local market is looking for - which should help you determine what professional training you might need.
You can also browse job listings and see what requirements they are looking for.

I would personally recommended purchasing 'Coaching Agile Teams' by Lyssa Adkins. Great material in there.

I agree with Tim on the book. Almost done reading it. Great work.

There is a lot of great reading material out there. You could start here: https://www.scrum.org/Courses/Professional-Scrum-Master/PSM-Subject-Are…

Also, seek colleagues and people who are seeking the same goal for your organisation. Create a community within your company and let it grow. You will help yourself and the organisation further.
