Scaled Scrum Master Certified online

SSMC™

When dealing with large projects, programs, and portfolios, some additional processes are required to address the additional coordination and synchronization efforts. Scaling Scrum for Large Projects and Scaling Scrum for the Enterprise cover these processes.

Scrum can be easily scaled for effective use in large projects, programs and portfolios. In situations where the Scrum Team size exceeds ten people, multiple Scrum Teams can be formed to work on the project. Large or complex projects are often implemented as part of a program or portfolio. The Scrum framework can also be applied to manage programs and portfolios. The logical approach of the guidelines and principles in this framework can be used to manage projects of any size, spanning geographies and organizations. Large projects may have multiple Scrum Teams working in parallel making it necessary to synchronize and facilitate the flow of information and enhance communication. Scaling Scrum for Large Projects facilitates coordination among the Scrum Teams, enabling effective implementation in larger projects and Scaling Scrum for the Enterprise facilitates coordination among various Scrum Teams within a program and a portfolio.

SSMC™ is an advanced-level certification for professionals who are working as or are interested to work as Chief Scrum Masters, Program Scrum Masters, or Portfolio Scrum Masters. The objective of this certification is to confirm that the applicants have sufficient expertise to coordinate and facilitate the working of multiple Scrum Teams at projects, programs and portfolios levels.

Students are encouraged to work through the concepts rather than just listen to them—this provides better internalization and retention. Students work through a case study to simulate product development using the Scrum Framework.

Successful candidates will be awarded the official Scaled Scrum Master Certified (SSMC™) certification by SCRUMstudy after passing the certification exam.
