Scrum Master

This Scrum Master self-assessment template enables the development of Scrum Master competencies and behaviors. Influenced by many Agile & Lean thought leaders, this template provides an opportunity for a Scrum Master to reflect and improve on the lean-agile practices, behaviors, and skills required to enable high-performing teams. While the Scrum Master assessment template is designed for real-life career development, it could also help any Scrum Master prepare for certification or a Scrum Master certification course.
