Advanced Certified Scrum Master Certification

Advanced Certified Scrum Master Certification Training

Advanced Certified Scrum Master Certification is a very popular topic today among many Scrum professionals who want to obtain Scrum Master Certificate and further develop their careers in this field.

Certification for the classic ScrumMaster seems to be inadequate for the current industry offering courses and certification.

Today many training companies offer Advanced Certification because they see a lot of potential for new clients driven by a desire for professional development. They will pay for a course or a whole certification program.

Advanced Certified ScrumMaster Certification against the classic Scrum Master

However, the difference between Advanced Certified ScrumMaster Certification and the classic Scrum Master is unclear, with no details or details.

Professionals are not surprised by the fact that the original Scrum Guide is still 9 pages long. All new and advanced courses are based on repetitive knowledge that is rewritten and reread over and over again.

Nothing new is offered by the certification industry.

If you need to ask a professional who is certified as an Advanced Certified ScrumMaster and a classic Simple Scrum Master (PSM example) at the same time, you will not receive an adequate answer to the benefits of his Advanced Document and Training as a whole.

The difference is again based on the organization that provided the training.

The phrase Advanced Certified Whatever Certification attracts attention

Many professionals in the field claim that this is the most common marketing trick. Attracting potential aspirants for the modern Scrum Master role that would actually pay for the word Advanced and ignore classic old training.

Everyone wants to impress potential employers or simply raise a little ego.

This marketing trick succeeded and Advanced Certified ScrumMaster is now a phrase that more and more people are searching online in search engines.

What does the Advanced Certified ScrumMaster offer?

More materials on Scaled processes are included in the training and more interactions with teams and departments are mentioned. But that does not mean you'll find anything more than Large-scale Scrum (LeSS), Scaled agile framework (SAFe), [email protected], The Nexus™ Guide and etc. Everything else is based on classical teachings.

Let's recall something familiar but forgotten:

Hirotaka Takeuchi and Ikujiro Nonaka introduced the term scrum in the context of product development back in 1986.

Many years passed. For many years, Scrum has become from product management slowly to project management. The real reason for this is that product management does not sound serious for the software industry bosses. Employers want to hear about Project Management. That sounds more serious.

In fact, at the end of the day, this old teaching remains unchanged, and no one has actually contributed new useful practices, principles, and rules.

BVOP™ changes the Scrum Master role

The BVOP™ Scrum Master role is not based only on classical practices. The classic old Scrum is something unique and they are millions of fans out there.

The BVOP™ Scrum Master role is really advanced because we dared to expand the Scrum Master role and incorporate Product Management, Human Resources (yes, even modern Human Resources knowledge), Project Management and many business and technical trends.

BVOP ™ Scrum Master advanced course

The BVOP™ Ultimate Guide is a free guide to business, human, product and project management. This means that you can learn the knowledge and principles freely when you want and as much as you like. The BVOP™ Scrum Master role is intended to be an advanced one. That is why professionals who want to develop as BVOP™ Scrum Master have to learn all the disciplines of the BVOP Ultimate Guide.

We believe that the modern Scrum Masters need this knowledge to be able to be adequate in real-world situations. Out there, a lot of skills and knowledge are required to satisfy dynamic businesses, consumers and products.

BVOP are designed to change the thinking of people, teams, and management and to create new principles in project, product and people management. Do not forget that. The most important principle of BVOP is that business and people must be equally valued by all. This is what the modern Scrum Master has to preach everywhere and with all his might.

This article is not intended to impose opinions or to highlight specific certification programs. Real differences and peculiarities in the roles as real knowledge and requirements for working in real projects are described.

    I respect a lot of Scrum teachings in general, their philosophical principles and beliefs. The points mentioned in the article about the Scrum Master role are really objective. Lack of detail, specific techniques of work in project and product management processes are a popular topic in many management and development groups. I support the claim that the BVOP Scrum Master role is really detailed, sophisticated and advanced.

    Hello there, If I have to choose between Scrum Master and Project Management Certificate what would you recommend? I would be glad to get an opinion on the matter because I have uncertainties. We work using the Scrum framework and we have a dedicated Scrum Master, which is certified. Our processes are like a textbook. We also have many project managers. The work of Scrum Master and Project Managers is quite similar to my observations. Thanks in advance.

    Hi Paul R. Scrum Master and project manager are two completely different roles from different approaches of delivering. The project manager is a management role responsible for the successful delivery of a project. The Scrum Master is a role from the Agile practices focused on development of a product. And that is really different matter. The Scrum Master is considered to be a person that supports teams involved in the entire product development life cycle. There is no management activity required or needed. Actually these are avoided and not desired. Scrum rejects the project manager.

    @Paul R. Just have in mind that the Scrum Master role is a supportive one. In most cases, you would be the most likely part of the development team. Do not compare the certified scrum master with the project manager because they are not comparable. You may search around about differences between a project manager and scrum master and you will get the point. Best, Boyd

    Hello Paul, I would recommend you Scrum Master certification because this role is very popular these days and the classical project manager fades away out. Go for Agile, Scrum and BVOP education, principles and certifications and you will open much more doors for your future career and professional development. I would also advise you to read and learn a bit about the project management so you will be familiar with major topic, phases and terminology, but these will be enough for you. In your daily life you will need Scrum Master practice and probably your most important duty will be a servant leadership - one very popular terminology meaning that you need to love your team, project the people, eliminate distractions and keeping everything on your common goals. I hope I helped you with my comment. Best regards, Stavros

    Hello dear BVOP team. I understand that your Scrum Master certification is presented with Advanced ScrumMaster title while in the certificates it is presented as regular Scrum Master. Where can I find the advanced offerings, are they currently available or some special requirements are needed. Sorry for asking you here but I hope you will excuse me. Thanks in advance
