Product Description

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.
