Project manager vs scrum master - Difference Roles Abilities Background

0 votes

I went the PMP route recently and know up and down about project managers, but I hadn't heard about scrum masters.

So what's a scrum master to you? How do they differ from project managers? What roles and responsibilities do you believe scrum masters have and how do they differ from PMs?
Thank you, everyone

The Project Manager and Scrum Master roles are not related. Organizations make a big mistake when they presume that one equates to the other.

Scrum is a framework for addressing complex problems and delivering products. The Scrum Master is, literally, the master of this framework who can mentor and facilitate for the team. Ideally, a scrum master works herself/himself out of a job as the team matures.

Hope this helps!
