PSM I Certified

Well I finally got around to taking my Scrum.Org PSM I (Professional Scrum Master I) assessment today and passed. I am now certified to be a Scrum Master and facilitate teams that use the scrum based agile development framework to manage projects. It’s cool to be certified as a Scrum Master and I’m sure it can be very useful someday. Unfortunately, right now in my current position I’m not doing agile development so I’m a bit sad I can’t make use of my new skills.

The Enterprise and Scrum

The Enterprise and Scrum by Ken Schwaber On of my coworkers won this as a prize at the IndyTechFest. We were all very intrigued by the Kanban talk that was given there and so I wanted to learn more about using lean development techniques in business. I found that this book helped me understand more about scrum and how it can improve my development capabilities. It’s a pretty quick read that you can do in a few nights at home but well worth it to learn more about lean.
